Experiencing some form of trauma, whether big or small, is part of human experience. The experiences of trauma, especially when repeated and unprocessed lead to changes in thinking, feeling, behavior, and the body. When unprocessed, trauma results in a survival orientation, however engaging in soothing neurosensory activities can help the body calm down from perceived threats (triggers). The sensory checklist and sensory profile (Biel & Peske, 2005) are excellent practical tools to assist traumatized children and adults to return to a natural state of regulation.
Goals and Objectives:
1. Be able to define trauma as well as develop ability to recognize the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, neurophysiological effects of traumatic events on children and adults.
2. Be able to verbalize how trauma informed treatment is different from other treatment models.
3. Demonstrate understanding of how to successfully use the sensory profile and sensory checklist in a clinical practice.
