Event description

Description

Back2Back Ministries in Collaboration with LaMB international is pleased to host Ruby Johnston, Lynn Johnston and Johanna Buchman for Sensory and Emotional Regulation Needs of Children with a Trauma History. Ruby, Lynn and Johanna bring extensive experience to the training room as together we will explore:

-Sensory Integration for Children Who Have Suffered Psychological Trauma – 1 ½ days with learning lab

-Traumatic stress overwhelms a child’s sense of safety and can lead to a variety of survival strategies for coping; some helpful and some maladaptive. Helping a child develop a tangible sense of ‘FELT-safety’ is critical for their functioning and healthy physical and emotional growth. This will provide caregivers, social workers, educators and volunteers with clear understanding of sensory needs and how to begin assessment of the youth’s sensory strengths. Tangible tools to support healthy brain chemistry, recognize a child’s sensory “hot spots”, and create safe predicable settings to live and grow.

-Helping A Psychologically Traumatized Child Learn to Regulate their Emotions – 1 ½ days with learning lab

-When working with the traumatized child, it is critical to remember that all behavior has meaning. Therefore, when a child is reacting to traumatic experiences and flash backs, they can present very challenging emotional and behaviors that require adult intervention. These ‘acting out behaviors’ can result from an emotional need, a physical need, or a sensory processing issue. This second half will explore several reasons for the challenging behavior and present trauma informed responses designed to help the child regulate their emotions and resulting behaviors using sensory stimulation; while teaching care givers to recognize and manage their own responses to the child’s behavior. Materials and lunch are included in the cost of $195. There are a limited number of scholarships available. 18 CEU's will be awarded to Ohio Social Workers and foster/adoptive parents.

-The training will take place April 25-April 27th from 9:00-4:00. The location is: Shelter Church 1441 E Dorothy Ln, Kettering, OH 45429 .

-The cost is $195 per person which includes lunch and materials.

-Feel free to invite others who are interested to participate.
