EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Information sessions include onsite walk-throughs followed by a discussion of findings and recommendations, one to one debriefings on individual worksites or more formal Powerpoint presentations. Ellen has taught on a college and universifty level as well as provided training to working therapists in ways to help their patients who have computer-related discomfort and conditions.
All training classes and seminars are individualized to meet the specific learning needs of the participants. Audience involvement is encouraged and individuals are given opportunities to integrate information on both cognitive and kinesthetic (body sense) levels. Objectives always include acquisition of conceptual information that provide tools to participants to allow them to apply the class content independently.
