Online Training and Modules

Online working and service options:

Dr Treisman in response to request and due to the pandemic has been offering an array on online and virtual services. Including webinars, coffee morning sessions, Q and A sessions, podcasts, virtual keynotes, workshops and facilitating reflective spaces and forums. We also can create tailor made videos and podcasts. The topics offered vary and will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Karen is mindful of offering topics that are safe and meaningful virtually; and which optimise people’s engagement with the material in an ethical way. These need to take into account the topic, the context, and what else is going on (e.g. the impact of the pandemic etc).

Dr Treisman does also take commissioned requests for creating service specific modules. Please email for further information. Ideally, we will need to know the size of the organisation. The length you would want it. Whether it will be in-house and protected or shared. And the topic/aims.

Some example 1.5-4 hour virtual workshops which have been popular have included: (these are just to give a flavour- see training page for far more ideas and options)
