There is a growing understanding and accompanying clinical practice that addresses the connection between sensory processing dysfunction and trauma. This two-day, hands-on course will explore, from a trauma informed perspective, the connections between sensory processing and sensory integrative difficulties. Interactive, hand-on labs, videos and case presentations will bring key concepts and treatment strategies to life in this theoretically based, yet practical workshop.
