Sensory Integration and Trauma in Children
This 1 day course will provide an insight into sensory integration and its application and links to developmental trauma / early childhood trauma and attachment issues , which can include: early loss or lack or consistent caregiver; emotional, physical or sexual abuse; various forms of neglect and medical or life-saving procedures.
Consequences of trauma are varied and the area of sensory processing and trauma is gaining increased attention with the work of leaders in the field such as Eadaoin Bhreathnach and Jane Koomar.
Trauma and sensory integration issues are deeply entwined, but by assisting survivors of trauma and their caregivers to understand and manage their sensory processing challenges, a positive effect on the impact of trauma can be achieved.
Lecturer, Laura Graham, is an independent occupational therapist and Advanced Sensory Integration Practitioner. She has spent many years working in community teams for the NHS with both children and adults with neurodevelopmental and learning disabilities. Laura is currently working towards completion of her MSc in Sensory Integration.
