Trauma Informed Approach to Sensory Processing Disorder and Arousal Regulation – Chicago Area
April 6, 2018 - April 7, 2018| usd $495
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 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.
Registration includes a Gertie Ball, a Power Up Ball and a Pinky Ball.
Take an additional discount of $25 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously. Discount applied at checkout.
