This conference will explore the connections between trauma, sensory integrative difficulties, arousal, affect and self-regulation. Participants will learn how sound and movement are critical in the development of body based, perceptual-motor, and social-emotional foundations for feeling safe in the world and in relationship to another. We will explore the basics of auditory and vestibular/somatosensory processing, and their relationship to arousal, attachment, self-regulation and learning. Video and case presentations will bring key concepts and treatment strategies to life in this theoretically-based, yet practical course.
