Teaching Traumatized Children: Exploring the Sensory Memory and the Behavioral Presentations of Traumatized Children

Sensation is the implicit content of our affect. Our affect is the explicit manifestation of our sensations. Through the body we will explore the dimensions of the self in time/space and relationship.  We will utilize the senses as a gateway into regulation, attachment and expression in the world. During practicums we will address regulation in the context of limbic resonance, intention, support and the development of a coherent narrative for promoting regulation. This workshop will present Early Childhood studies.

Who Should Attend

Target audience:  Early childhood therapists, educators, occupational therapists, couples therapists, addictions therapists, individual psychotherapists, trauma therapists, body workers, medical staff, and parents.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes

  • Attendees will
  • Recognize the inter-connection between the body senses, auto/self-regulation and their importance in relationships
  • Apply a Sensory Motor Integrative model for treating disorders of trauma and attachment
