The SAI Foundation Training is open to all Therapists and Practitioners with an undergraduate degree in Health, Social Care or Education.
Introduction to SAI:
The Impact of Developmental Trauma and Insecure Attachment on Sensory Processing.
This three-day course will look at the theories that provide the framework for SAI. Emphasis will be on the impact of trauma on sensory processing, and on the capacity for self and co-regulation.
Participants will learn the neurosequential approach to intervention; that is, when it is most effective to use interventions such as narrative work, play therapy, and education.
They will learn the principles of up-regulation and down-regulation to enable physiological adaptation for social engagement and academic learning.
Parent child Relationships: An Integrative Approach to Assessment and Intervention
This three-day course with Helen Johnson aims to examine contemporary attachment theory in the context of other theories. The focus will be on enabling participants to explore the ways in which an attachment lens can inform our understanding of parent/child interactions and family dynamics with a view to formulating more effective interventions.
