The impact of developmental trauma on sensory processing - via Zoom

Description:

Children who have experienced developmental trauma can have altered sensory processing.

Sensory processing, combined with attachment theory, recognizes the need to target the areas of the brain that are the source of the dysfunction and works on re-wiring the brains of children with developmental trauma.

This can be done through understanding the child’s sensory needs and developing sensory regulating strategies that can help the child dampen down over-responsive senses and activate under-responsive ones.

This in turn enables higher level sensory, emotional and cognitive functioning and allows for attachment/trauma-focused therapies to then work on offering effective emotional co-regulation, deepening connections, and co-creating meaningful narratives for young people in order to make better sense of themselves.

Who should attend

Pre and post adoption workers, and other professionals working with children who have experienced developmental trauma.
Pre and post adoptive parents and other permanent carers.
