This 1-day workshop will look deeper at the mechanics of sensory modulation and how this overlap with emotional regulation. Literature from an occupational therapy perspective as well as from the mental health perspective will be included. Maude will also cover how modulation / regulation needs change across the developmental continuum as children mature through different stages. The same behavior may not be triggered for the same reasons any longer. The impact of human behavior, attachment styles and trauma will be an added feature of discussion. This workshop will help the therapist to “chase the why” to know at what level to intervene with the best effect over a shorter space of time.
