Finding Safety and Stability: A Trauma-Informed Sensory Motor Approach

March 1, 2019

| usd $225

Therapists and other professionals who work with individuals with sensory and developmental disorders (e.g. autism spectrum, attention deficit, learning disabilities) often encounter clients with difficulties related to developmental trauma. Traumatic events may be overt, such as early loss of a primary caregiver; sexual, physical or emotional abuse; or domestic, community and school violence. Trauma may also be innocent, such as early hospitalization and necessary lifesaving medical procedures in the neonatal intensive care unit. Exposure to adverse life experiences has been shown to increase the likelihood of social, emotional and developmental delays. Furthermore, children with developmental delays have a higher risk of being subjected to experiences involving physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

There is a growing understanding, and accompanying clinical practice that addresses the connection between sensory processing dysfunction and trauma. When an individual cannot adequately process sensory information or traumatic experiences, the body’s natural defense mechanisms become heightened, further impacting sensory processing disorder.

This live, one-day, online course will explore the connections between trauma, sensory processing and sensory integrative difficulties. 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.

Registration includes the Therapy Ball Trio (S&H fees may apply^).

Take an additional discount of $15 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously under the same web-order.
