SAI Foundation Training
There are two elements to the Foundation Training:
'Introduction to SAI: The Impact of Developmental Trauma and Insecure Attachment on Sensory Processing'
(dates and more information below)
and completion of ONE of the following courses:
'Attachment: Parent Child Relationships: An Integrative Response to Assessment and Intervention' with Attachment Works
Any of the Dynamic-Maturational Model (DMM) courses. See the Family Relations Institute for details.
‘Child Attachment & Play Assessment’ Module 1, with CAPA.
Both elements must be completed to receive a SAI Foundation Training certificate. These can be done in any order. This certificate is required before proceeding on the SAI training pathway. The SAI Foundation Training is open to all Therapists and Practitioners with a Primary Degree in Health, Social Care or Education. A Certificate or other evidence of completion of one of these courses is required when applying for the Foundation Training Certificate or for later courses in the pathway.
OTs and Physios may do the 6-day SAI for Adults and Adolescents instead of the 3-day Introduction to SAI.
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.
