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.

Trauma Informed Approach to Sensory Processing Disorder and Arousal Regulation

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.

 

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize when patterns of defense are interfering with function and daily life.
  • Employ three body-based strategies to decrease tension patterns and regulate arousal.
  • Design three play-based strategies that support regulation, arousal, affect and social engagement.
