#7369 Understanding How Trauma Affects the Sensory Systems in Pediatrics


The purpose of the course is to better understand skill vs will. Often, children who grow up with adverse experiences face unrealistic expectations. This course will explore how the brain develops in relation to adverse experience and provide tools to help understand how to best encourage and support children who have experienced neglect or abuse. Tips will also be given to best support caregivers and professionals who work with children who often are resistive to therapeutic interaction due to lack of trust and felt safety. Attainment of common goals such as sleep, nutrition, overactivity, and avoidance will be discussed. (Intermediate Level)
