Description: We live in a world today where trauma is everywhere and no one can really escape it in some shape or form. The Covid epidemic had global impact and the rates of child and domestic abuse have risen. We experience natural disasters, medical traumas and a multitude of experiences threatening to take away our joy in the world we live in. This workshop will explore the different definitions of trauma and its’ implications on functional daily living across different domains. We will take the participant on journey to understand how the different facets of the Tomatis Method can assist these implications from a sensory-physical to and emotional point of view. Maude will discuss the importance of a trans-disciplinary approach in this very complicated work as well as provide resources about where to learn more. The Tomatis practitioner will be able to connect the different parameters of the Tomatis Method through case studies and practical application. The participant will not only listen, but also participate in creating opportunity for practical application of the material. Together, we can join our work to support healing in others!

Provider Name: Maude Le Roux Academy

Speaker: Maude Le Roux, OTR/L

Bio: Maude is a globally known presenter on a variety of different topics. She hails from South Africa, graduated there in 1984, and opened her private practice in Glen Mills, PA in 2001. Maude trained in the Tomatis Method in 2003 and became a trainer in the Tomatis Method in 2009. She is well known in the global Tomatis Community and have spoken at multiple international conferences over the years. She opened the Maude Le Roux Academy in January 2019 as her travel schedule disallowed her the pleasure of feeling “grounded” in her own home! Maude accomplished multiple certifications throughout the years and continues her journey of being a life- long learner. She believes in giving back to her community and has served on the Board of Directors for ATTACh for the past 6 years. Maude co-authored the book, Our Greatest Allies, with Lauren O’Malley and hopes to find the time in the next 5 years to finish another book she has been laboring over. Her wish is for every therapist to come fully into their own being, be their authentic selves, so their clients can also transition from sometimes fragmented places to a new sense of wholeness.

8 reviews for Trauma and the Tomatis Method

  1. Charller

    Yes. Thank you! I feel this was essential for applying theory to practice. The training has so much information, especially with the Listening test aspect. Maude creates a safe place to ask questions and be vulnerable about what you do not know/need clarification on. The group dynamic is very supportive and encouraging. Thank you for facilitating an excellent workshop, Maude. You handled a variety of people/levels and backgrounds masterfully. I wish it was on Zoom to have had a more interactive experience, especially when discussing the LT’s.

    Maude has a talent to take very complicated concepts, breaking them down and explaining it really well and showing where it fits into your current body of knowledge and practise.

    Maude creates excellent webinars! I  see where I have gone wrong in the past, added to my learning to discriminate and understand the kids that expresses the very protective shield in their listening tests. Thank you! Also really appreciate being able to review the webinar – it forces me to get my thoughts in order and really get to grips with what you are saying.   You really are such a blessing to this community and an awesome fund of knowledge!!

    Very best wishes, love and thanks,

    Maude is a very capable communicator and is able to share her very expansive subject expertise and experience in an excellent way. I enjoy how Maude adds examples and also talks to the subject rather than just reading back what is written on the PowerPoint. All participant questions are addressed and acknowledged.

  7. Charller

    Access to recordings is always much appreciated and always allows for really being able to make use of or apply the knowledge. There is always a good balance between the theories, well explained, and how they relate to the everyday practice. Very few questions remain because the topic was so thoroughly presented.

    Maude is just one of those life mentors that you respect and want to hear anything they touch upon as it will enrich and bring a new level of awareness in your practice.
