Shlomo Golub, B.A., M.A.

ShlomoGolubShlomo Golub is a psychologist, licensed in Israel, who specializes in education-related issues.

Shlomo received a B.A. in psychology from the University of California at Irvine and an M.A. in psychology (which included an emphasis on marriage and family therapy) from Pepperdine University in California. Shlomo has continued to take numerous post-graduate courses, qualifying him to work with a very large range of cases and modalities. For example, he has received extensive training in treating sexual abuse (from אל”י and from חרוב).

Shlomo has worked for 10 years in Charedi kindergartens and Talmudei Torah and Dati elementary schools (including both regular and special education) in various municipalities. Presently Shlomo works privately working directly with individuals, parents and children (and sometimes with families).

Shlomo excels in educational and psychological testing, child therapy and parenting issues. According to the need, he can work with individuals or families. He uses conceptualization and techniques from various psychological approaches, allowing him to choose the approach that seems most relevant and likely to be helpful, given the context.

Shlomo very much believes in “educate youth according (to his or her unique) way.” Yet Shlomo has observed that the child’s “way” is often misunderstood, causing “education” to be misapplied. For example, there are numerous reasons why a child might find it hard to “sit quietly” in class, yet the assumed cause is often inaccurate or incomplete, causing inappropriate intervention.

In fact, Shlomo notes, a person stands to benefit greatly throughout his lifetime from understanding his own unique psycho-social profile. Shlomo encourages his adult clients to explore their profiles, particularly as they impede success in accomplishing life’s tasks, interpersonal relationships or parenting.
