Structured Sensory Interventions II

Structured Sensory Interventions takes participants deeper into the brain science of trauma and toxic stress, exploring the polyvagal theory, epigenetics, and the science of resilience. The content emphasizes the importance of hope when working with at risk and traumatized youth. Participants learn about the SITCAP® model (Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents and Parents) and practice sensory based interventions from a variety of SITCAP® model programs, including Healing the Experience of Trauma: A Path to Resilience. Experiential activities and the presentation of case examples showcase how to process trauma and nurture and restore resilience in youth of all ages.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to be a caring, curious witness to help trauma survivors heal
  • Identify the most immediate and appropriate intervention needs of the traumatized child/adolescent
  • Learn and practice activities for the most common themes of trauma
