Trieschman family to be honored by Walker group

On May 2, Concord resident Karl Trieschman will accept, on behalf of his family, the 2015 Distinguished Community Leadership Award from Walker, a Needham-based nonprofit organization that provides services for children with special behavioral needs. The recognition cites the work of his late father, Albert Trieschman, who founded the Walker Home facility in 1961. In 1969, the psychologist co-wrote “The Other 23 Hours,” which focused on the importance of a therapeutic environment in the lives of children who require treatment for complex behavioral issues. The leadership award is given annually to a person, family, or organization demonstrating a commitment to helping the lives of the children and their families.
