Location: Northampton, Massachusetts USA
Course Instructors: Tina Champagne, OTD, OTR/L, CCAP & Special Guests

She is certified in sensory processing and a variety of therapeutic modalities.
This 2-day workshop brings together expertise from the areas of sensory processing, neuroscience, mental health and occupational therapy practices. Course 2 builds off of the information presented in course 1. The primary emphasis will be on the differentiation between sensory modulation, sensory discrimination and motor-based patterns, how these patterns are influenced by trauma, attachment and mental health, and the impact on occupational participation. This course is designed to assist participants in understanding how to identify and integrate the use of sensory processing, trauma and attachment-related assessment, and treatment planning skills at an intermediate level. Lecture, case examples and interactive lab sessions will be provided, spanning child, adolescent, adult and geriatric populations to afford the learner the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to apply advanced skills into their practice. Participants will leave with a variety of practical ideas and resources for assessment and treatment implementation. Modifications for working with child, adult, and geriatric populations of varying ability levels will be explored.
