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!
