If ye would go up high, then use your own legs! Do not get yourselves carried aloft; do not seat yourselves on other people’s backs and heads!Nietzsche
Dr. Etai Matza finished his doctorate studies at Bar-Ilan University. His dissertation dealt with the process of adaptation of fathers and preschool children to the dissolution of the family unit, and the role of fatherhood in child development.
His main research interests focus on parental functioning and its impact on children's mental well-being, especially in crisis situations. These studies’ conclusions enable a better understanding of the contemporary family structure and how the new division of roles affects its members.
