Pediatric Strategies Class
Therapists working in the home, in clinic and in schools are dealing with dysregulated children facing chaotic environments.
We gain a better understanding of these childrens’ challenges when we learn about the “Why of the Wiring” and how sensory motor functioning as well as social behaviors can be the result of disrupted brainstem circuitry.
However, holding space for both the broad, often unspoken dynamics of home situations and school environments while helping kids land in their bodies for better regulation has not been explored.
In this special one-day class, we take a closer look at brainstem survival wiring patterns, how the infant organizes himself from these internal disruptions, and the environmental and behavioral challenges that ensue.
We will explore the dance of family dynamics and survival wiring behaviors, finding new language that both acknowledges the challenges and guides the way towards restorative and transformative processes.
We will create more effective interactive strategies from the foundations of permission, presence, patience and persistence.
Join us as we journey from survival strategies to thriving possibilities, as we bring the Why of the Wiring into the World.
Upon completion of this introductory class, students will be able to:
- describe the basic neurosensory processing dynamic
- list three pre- and post-natal wiring disruption events, and three
- adverse plasticization events
- identify three common survival strategy behaviors in home, school and clinic settings
- identify three common attachment disorder patterns and potential engagement strategies
- identify and perform the three-step process for effective connection, landing and learning.
