Description

Course Summary

Brain Sense Therapy is excited to be hosting this bespoke course designed specifically for Occupational Therapists working in the UK.

Many services are struggling to offer direct intervention to address the occupational performance issues of individuals with sensory processing difficulties and are therefore providing clients, parents and schools with programmes and sensory diets to address these functional difficulties. These programmes are often generic.

This course supports therapists to effectively add power and precision to their treatment programmes, including sensory diets, and to facilitate the design of sensory supportive classrooms, homes and environments. Therapists will gain an understanding of how the vestibular system, postural integration & core control, proprioception, the dynamics of breath and the use sound as a tool can be applied. This is with the aim of improving occupational performance in the areas targeted for intervention.

Who Should Attend? This course is open to Occupational Therapists working to address the occupational performance difficulties of children and adults with sensory processing dysfunction.

Presenters

Sheila Frick, OTR/L: Sheila is a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and founder of Vital Links. Sheila has well over 30 years of clinical experience, having worked in psychiatry, rehabilitation, and home health before specializing in paediatrics. Sheila’s expertise includes sensory processing dysfunction, sensory integration, and auditory interventions. Sheila has explored the links between Sensory Integration and developmental movement patterns through many avenues including the teaching of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen at Body Mind Centering, Marcia Monroe and Donna Farhi on developmental yoga training, and Peggy Hackney on Bartenieff Fundamentals. In addition, Sheila has collaborated with well-recognized leaders in the field of Sensory Integration including Mary Kawar, Patricia Wilbarger, Julia Wilbarger, Patricia Oetter, Eileen Richter, and Mary Fiorentino.

Sheila created and continues to expand Therapeutic Listening®, which has been taught to over 14,000 therapists worldwide. She also lectures on topics such as clinical neurology, respiration, the vestibular/auditory system, and various auditory interventions. Sheila is the author of Listening with the Whole Body: Clinical Concepts and Treatment Guidelines for Therapeutic Listening, and co-author of Core Concepts in Action; Astronaut Training: A Sound Activated Vestibular-Visual Protocol; and Out of the Mouths of Babes. Recently, Sheila served as a contributing author for her section on Therapeutic Listening in the upcoming 3rd edition of Sensory Integration: Theory and Practice.

Sheila’s interest in further exploration of the impact of traumatic experiences on sensory processing and overall participation in daily life led her to train and later teaching with the TRE® organization. Her recent work in TRE® has influenced Sheila’s interest in expanding techniques and activities appropriate for children and young adults aimed at reducing stress, tension, and anxiety through movement and auditory-based tools (Quickshifts).

Sheila continues to lecture on clinical, practically oriented, treatment focused workshops worldwide along with seeing clients in her private practice in Madison, Wisconsin.


Tracy Bjorling OTR/L: Personally mentored and trained by Sheila M. Frick, Tracy Bjorling began her occupational therapy career at Vital Links in 2010 after completing her Master’s in Occupational Therapy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Tracy credits her graduate school professor, Julia Wilbarger, PhD, OTR/L, for setting her on her current career path by introducing her to Sheila and Vital Links. In addition to actively treating clients in the clinic, Tracy has been trained in both the clinical practice and teaching of Therapeutic Listening and Quickshifts. Tracy currently enjoys joining Sheila in teaching these practical treatment tools with therapists across a variety of treatment settings.
