Almost half of the nation's children have experienced at least one type of serious childhood trauma, according to the National Survey of Children's Health. This growing statistic requires that mental health professionals be better informed and skilled at using best practice interventions to serve trauma survivors. Trauma is a sensory experience that affects the mind and body; therefore, treatment must include sensory-based interventions to facilitate the healing process. Participants in this experiential workshop will receive an overview of the physical and mental effects of trauma, and will have the opportunity to interact and play as they practice and learn sensory-based interventions to use with child and adolescent trauma survivors.
