Across the series, video and real case studies will be used to introduce and enhance understanding and demonstrate the application of Ayres’ Sensory Integration within mental health, learning disability and other services.
Early development, the effect of trauma and early deprivation will also be considered, with evidence from current neuroscience.
Participants will explore and consider;
- the links between sensory integration, development and wellbeing;
- how sensory integration underpins and is essential to occupation, function and participation in daily life, within this client population;
- different reasons for referral and implications for practice?
- How sensory difficulties may present in various clinical contexts and across different diagnoses – with reference to current research and evidence.
- The importance of psycho-education and how sensory integration approaches can be used in combination with traditional psychological approaches, including CBT/DBT etc.
- ways to educate and influence others in the multidisciplinary team to drive service delivery and re-design; with reference to national and international healthcare delivery directives
- different care pathways and models of service delivery, as part of service development and clinical commissioning
