Ma'agalim (Circles, in Hebrew) aims to offer a comprehensive support system to young children in extreme risk.
Ma'aglim works with a select number of families, which are unable to successfully consume traditional services available to children. Families referred to Ma'agalim by social services, often through a court mandate, in last resort to keep children in their family of origin.
Each family receives a unique therapeutic package that addresses the range of problems that affect their children's wellbeing, with emphasis on improving parent-child relationship and treating any developmental delays in the children. Therapy focuses on building coping skills, communication and language skills, parental abilities and sibling relationships.
In addition to the developmental and emotional treatments, the program supports participants in their interactions with other service bodies such as day care centers or health providers and social services for other services.
