Details

Overview:

Our environments are becoming increasingly complex and stimulating. We take in more visual and
auditory information than ever before . With current research advances in neurology, there is
new evidence of the neurological impact such stimulation imposes. What is in our environment
greatly affects our function. Our sensory systems take information in to use it to produce
behavior. Even those with out diagnoses can be challenged by an over stimulating environment.

Furthermore, conditions such as Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing disorders pose even more
complexities and call for enhanced intervention approaches.This course reviews the connection
of context and environment to function. In order for an accurate review,it will include
psychological and neurological overviews.

The overviews allow the attendees to make connections and better understand the
neuroanatomical changes, alterations to neuronal rhythmic oscillations, and functional
presentations of the nervous system based on the context and environment. A brief review of
treatment approaches will include sensory work through the nine neurological senses,
Mindfulness,and Rhythm therapy. Following this session, participants will be able to describe
the related neurological dysfunction based on external sensory stimuli, the role of the nine
senses,define and describe neuronal oscillations and their connection to function, and relate
current research.

Despite your profession, practitioners can all agree. Working with our children today is
becoming more challenging. The rate of diagnoses such as mental disorders and conditions such
as Complex Trauma, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety disorder, Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing
Disorders is ever growing. Join Dr. Varleisha Gibbs, PhD, OTR/L, renowned occupational
therapist, self-regulation expert, and author for this full day workshop and learn clinically
proven neurological approach of Contextual Sensory Integration (CSI) to addressing pediatric
disorders in children and adolescence. While strategies directly address specific diagnoses
covered include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety, Autism, Sensory
Processing Disorder, and ADHD CSI is a global approach for all.

Knowing the underlying brain connections will help you better select and develop appropriate
interventions for challenging behaviors, such as hyper-activity, hypo-activity,
aggressiveness, self-stimulatory behaviors, and inattentiveness. In this course, you will gain
the essential knowledge of the underlying neuroanatomical connections to help you better
select and develop appropriate interventions for children who display mental health
challenges. The workshop also defines the "TEST" behaviors of tantrums, eating, sleeping, and
toileting. Interventions for those behaviors assist practitioners in further enhancing their
skills and success in treating such challenging presentations. Attendees gain knowledge on the
neurological connection to the various sensory strategies, current treatment techniques,
including, sensory friendly environments, activation of the Vagus nerve, music and movement,
and positioning. Active learning strategies will include a virtual brain dissection with video
wet labs and video case examples.

Attendees will walk away with neurologically tailored strategies, cutting-edge treatment
techniques, and sensory equipment strategies based on the CSI Approach. Additional strategies
to include, mindfulness, music and movement, and positioning techniques. They will learn the
underlying neurological components to connect the brain to clinical practice through briefly
reviewing neuroanatomy via brain dissection video wet labs, neurological pathways, function,
Autonomic Nervous System and behavioral presentations connected to stress, fear, and anxiety,
and video examples of children to link content reviewed to symptoms and appropriate
intervention. Session topics will also include activating the Vagus nerve and the nervous
system for regulation; how primitive reflexes connect to seating position, incorporating Dr.
Gibb's Self Regulation and Mindfulness approach and CSI approach to treatment intervention and
caregiver training.

Lastly, attending this webinar will allow for the application of knowledge gained through the
use of video case studies to examine the evaluation process, treatment planning, goal
development, and re-assessment of children displaying challenging social, eating, and sleeping
behaviors. Whether you are an new practitioner, experienced, mental health professional, or
clinical rehabilitation therapists, Dr. Gibb's makes it easy to understand and easy to
implement. You will leave invigorated by revelations exposed and ready to get to work
following your day with Dr. Gibbs' and this igniting presentation!

Why should you Attend: Currently, teachers, therapists, and parents find themselves challenged
with hyperactivity and other complex behaviors by children. Weather in the classroom or at
home, children's arousal levels can impact our lives immensely. Working with conditions such
as Complex Trauma, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing
Disorders can be a huge undertaking even for the experienced teacher or practitioner. In this
course, you will gain the essential knowledge of the impact of the context and environment on
function.

Additionally, it will review the underlying nervous system connections to help you better
select and develop appropriate adaptations to the environment and tasks for children who
display behavioral challenges, such as hyperactivity, aggressiveness, self-stimulatory, and
inattentiveness.

Attendees will walk away with various sensory strategies, current treatment techniques,
including activation of the Vagus nerve, music activities, environmental lighting, and
positioning strategies. Active learning strategies will include video case examples. Attendees
leave with newfound confidence following this invigorating webinar!
