Becoming a Behavioural Detective: Sensory Processing, Mental Health, Trauma and Resilience
In this workshop, Kim Barthel (OTR) will share how becoming a “behavioural detective” helps us to better understand what’s going on behind the scenes for our clients. Many things impact behaviour that aren’t always front of mind: sensory processing issues, trauma history (even multi-generational), developmental disabilities, attachment strategies… Understanding these impacts, and how we can be more attuned to our clients who experience dysregulation, behavioural issues and mental health challenges, plays a significant role in how we can help and connect in a wide variety of contexts and environments. Viewed through the lens that all behaviour is a way of coping, Kim will discuss strategies to adapt the environment, focus on relationship, provide appropriate supports and help foster greater resiliency. The art of becoming a good behavioural detective – working to understand why children do what they do - involves not only what you do, but how you do it.
Recommended for: rehab professionals, social workers, nurses, psychologists and teachers.
