08mayAll DayA Day with Dr Karen Treisman


Event Details

Following on from her keynote speech at the ‘Healing from Trauma and Moving On’ conference, Dr Karen Treisman will be returning to Scotland for a full-day conference and training session, focusing on trauma-informed and trauma-responsive practice.

Dr Karen Treisman is a Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist who has worked in the National Health System and children’s services for several years.

Karen has extensive experience in the areas of trauma, parenting, adversity (ACEs) and attachment, and works clinically using a range of therapeutic approaches with families, systems and children in or on the edge of care, unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people, and adopted children. Karen also specialises in supporting organisations and systems to sustain trauma-informed and trauma-responsive practice. This work focuses on creating a cultural and paradigm shift across whole systems.

She emphasises the need to move away from ‘What is wrong with you’ to: ‘What happened to you?’; ‘Who are you?’; ‘What kaleidoscope do you see the world through?’ – because relationships directly affect the brain, and we need to experience compassion and empathy in order for our brains to develop positively.

Join us on Wednesday 8 May 2019 for a Day with Dr Karen Treisman.
