Therapy Ball Trio

Therapy Ball Trio included with course

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. We will also provide a brief introduction to the tension reducing technique, known as TRE®, as a means of demonstrating how the body retains stress in core muscular tension patterns. This course will investigate the hardwired action systems that underlie sensory modulation, arousal, affect regulation, and play. A clinical reasoning model for tracking dynamic shifts in state and levels of integration will be presented. Interactive hands-on labs, video and case presentations will bring key concepts and treatment strategies to life in this theoretically based, yet practical course.

Who Should Attend:
Occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, physical therapists, psychologists, physicians, educators, social workers, mental health therapists, and human services professionals. Graduating students or graduate students of the aforementioned fields are also welcome.
