Sensorimotor Approach to Arousal Regulation and Developmental Trauma – Chicago

ILAIMH Members = $140 & Students = $50

There is a growing understanding and accompanying clinical practice that addresses the connection between sensorimotor integration dysfunction and trauma. When an individual cannot adequately process and integrate sensory information and/or traumatic experiences, the body’s arousal and self-regulatory mechanisms become altered thus impacting our ability to adequately cope with seemingly harmless day-to-day stressors.

This workshop will explore the connections between trauma, sensory integrative difficulties, arousal, affect, and self-regulation. Participants will learn how sound and movement are critical in the development of body based, perceptual-motor, and social-emotional foundations for feeling safe in the world and in relationship to another. Treatment labs will explore the basics of auditory and vestibular/somatosensory processing, and their relationship to arousal, attachment, self-regulation, and learning. Video and case presentations will bring key concepts and treatment strategies to life in this theoretically based, yet practical course.
