Yossi Levi-Belzis a clinical psychologist and clinical scientist, who is primarily interested in the psychological mechanisms that can help us understand and prevent suicide in different at-risk populations (adolescents, soldiers, ex-prisoners of war, medically serious suicide attempters, etc.). Other related key research topics include suicide survivors, specifically, the ability to grow following suicide loss in the family. Other research areas are interpersonal interaction in both real life and in therapy sessions, and attitudes of the public toward psychotherapy. I merge clinical, social, and research work and consider the integration of these three aspects as the central value of my work.
