How to arrange a talk or workshop for your group
I am available to offer lectures and workshops to professional and general audiences. I am also available to do readings from Your Turn for Care, as well as workshops for survivors dealing with concerns related to abusive elders.
If you want to get a flavor of what I’m like as a presenter there are several free videos of me giving talks or workshops on the Recorded Media page. My usual fee for a workshop is 3000/day plus travel expenses. I generally need several months notice in order to schedule a workshop.
Most of the following workshops can be presented to accommodate time slots varying from 1 hour to 2 days. Feel free to contact me to discuss the needs and interests of your organization. I am always interested in working with your group to develop new presentation topics that are tailored to your group’s specific needs.
Topics on which I am currently available to offer workshops include:
- Coping with the aging and death of abusive elders in your family
- Self-care for adult survivor caregivers
- Therapist self-care as a path toward ethical practice
- Cultural competence in trauma treatment
- Assessment and treatment of trauma
- Trauma and memory
- Forensic issues for psychotherapists
- Integrating diversity into psychotherapy and assessment
