Online working and service options:
Dr Treisman in response to request and due to the pandemic has been offering an array of 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 of Karen’s most meaningful and impactful work is when training is delivered over a long period such as 6 months to 18 months alongside reflective practice, supervision, and consultation. See the following evaluation for a flavour of the impact of such a course- candle summary paper pdf-compressed
Questions and reflection points for organisations enquiring about trauma-informed training (great document to read before enquiring, doing tenders, booking training etc)- Trauma informed queries and requests points to reflect on
Some example 1.5-4 hour virtual workshops which have been popular have included: (these are just to give a flavour- please see the training page on this website for far more ideas and options. Before contacting us it is helpful if you can narrow down where possible which courses you are interested in, the number of people, whether virtual or face to face, how many days etc.)
