Expert Talks to Help with Skills Training

La Inocente Curandera - Dr Maria Georgiou Shippi - Services - Expert-Talks

Expert talks can be formed as a one of lecture or seminar. I have experience in teaching at a University level and use my ability to explain complex theories and ideas in giving talks in different settings. Seminars include activities that help the audience practise what they have been taught with the facilitator. Talks can be targeted on specific skills training i.e. stress management in the workspace.

Seminar Provisions

I am able to plan, prepare, and facilitate seminars for a range of topics depending on your organisational and service based needs. I have extensive experience presenting informational and skill-practise material i.e. academic settings, seminars targeting expert and non expert audiences. The language used is always simple to help people understand what is communicated to them. Audiences include: teenagers, adults, older adults, professionals of varied backgrounds, clients and patients. Below, you can find an example of my previous work.

This seminar was presented in UK’s National Health Service. It explained how counselling psychology fits and can be utilised within an integrative care context. The seminar also highlighted how the philosophical and ethical standpoints of counselling psychologists regarding clinical practice can promote organisational developments and service provisions.

Working With Media

I strongly believe that cooperating with the media benefits the people engaging with these sources of information, me as a psychologist, and the profession. The fact that sharing knowledge and information can be of benefit to all that have access to it, is a strong motivating factor in working with the media. Professional benefits include encouraging public interest in my work, strengthening my professional reputation by showing to existing and future clients how I research, make meaning, and think about things.

I have cooperated with media journalists on matters of environmental contact and well-being, helping students prepare for university studies, and published material in many Cypriot magazines.

Feel free to get in touch if you are considering sharing information that touches on “being human”. I am more than happy to collaborate with you on creating a psychologically informed media post.
