About The Event

This workshop offers some tools and ideas for supporting children and young people around transitions and moving on, such as moving to a new foster home, ending therapy, transitioning between schools, and so forth.

This workshop also gives some time to reflect on why endings and goodbyes might be more difficult for children and young people in the context of trauma and ruptured attachments.

We will also discuss some of the common responses we might see during and around endings; as well as how this can trigger our own experiences with endings and goodbyes.

Practical and creative ideas will be shared for supporting reparative and healing endings, & should time allow we can also talk about some “smaller” transitions such as from one task to another, or from the playground to the classroom.

Karen has extensive experience in the areas of trauma, parenting, adversity (ACE’s) 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 move towards becoming, and to sustain adversity, culturally and, trauma-informed, infused, and responsive practice. This work focuses on creating meaningful and multi-layered cultural and paradigm shift across whole systems. This was the focus of Dr Treisman’s Winston Churchill Fellowship Karen was awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship Travel Award which involved visited several places in the USA to further study whole system and organisational approaches to trauma-informed and trauma-responsive care and this topic is the focus of Dr Treisman’s next book due to be published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers entitled “A Treasure Box for Creating Trauma-Informed Organizations: A Ready-to-Use Resource For Trauma, Adversity, and Culturally Informed, Infused and Responsive Systems”.
