Webinar: The Art of Attachment: Using Sensory Strategies as a Key to Connection
The Art of Attachment: Using Sensory Strategies as a Key to Connection
Attachment is the cornerstone of connection, healing, and harmony in an adoptive family. This workshop provides some understanding of the way that children with trauma histories and/or attachment disruptions can have differing brain and body chemistry, including differently developed sensory integration systems. Understanding your child as a sensory being can provide important hints at finding ways to soothe, and connect with them. The goal of this workshop is to explore issues related to sensory processing, and assist adoptive parents in finding concrete sensory integration strategies that are trauma informed and strengthen attachment. Children ages 0-18 will be discussed. Appropriate for all parents and professionals.
