Ta'ir supports and provides guidance on a continual basis for professionals who in their ongoing work encounter survivors of rape and sexual assault.
Annually, Ta'ir's staff meet with over 350 professionals through lectures and trainings held at local department of social affairs or welfare organizations, as well as through ongoing professional relations regarding the treatment of cases.
