The Israeli Institute for Systemic Studies, Family and Personal Change
The SHINUI Institute was founded in 1985 by Dr. Noga (Rubinstein) Nabarro together with Dr. Haviva Ayal and Dr. Sara Ivanir. The name SHINUI, meaning change in Hebrew was chosen to connote our orientation towards transformation and evolution. The SHINUI Institute was born out of a commitment to enhance and develop innovative models and techniques of systems therapy, while providing quality family therapy services and training throughout Israel and abroad.
