Huge Congratulations to Catherine Totten, Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and SI Advanced Practitioner*, for being accepted to present a seminar, based upon her SI 4 case study project, at the College of Occupational Therapists Special Section Mental Health Conference (COTSS MH) later this year.
The COTSS MH Conference, is taking place this year on 14th and 15th September in Birmingham. This year’s theme is “Mental Health Occupational Therapists – Adding Value.”
Occupational Therapist, Catherine decided to submit her abstract to the COTSS MH conference, based on the case study she used to achieve her Advanced Practitioner status* – A Case Report of Ayres Sensory Integration of an Adult with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Catherine was delighted to hear that she has been accepted to present a 45-minute seminar on her work.
“I am very excited to have been chosen to present my paper on SI with an adult with Asperger’s Syndrome, as I feel it has a lot to contribute to my area of practice in forensic mental health and demonstrates great outcomes in the contribution of ASI in managing challenging behaviour.”
We wish Catherine every success in her presentation and look forward to hearing more about her experiences after the conference.
*Catherine completed module 4 (Advanced Treatment) this year. She has received her provisional results and is currently waiting for them to be ratified by the Ulster University Board of Examiners in September 2017.
