Ifat Gavish

Ifat Gavish is a PhD student in the Department of Counseling and Human Development at the University of Haifa's Faculty of Education. She studies the prosocial behavior of adolescents and adults, investigating mechanisms that may explain value-behavior relations and value-change-behavior relations and the role cognitive components play. Ifat proposes an integrative empirical framework for examining how attention and interpretation influence the connection between values and prosocial behavior, following intervention. Her vision is to lay the ground for comprehensive educational intervention, which would promote self-transcendence values, individual well-being, and a healthier society.
