Below is the link to the Launch of the Extra Lesson Healing Trauma Conference running from Friday 1 May to Tuesday 30 June 2020.

The theme of the conference is Healing Trauma – explores the importance of attachment and respectful relationships in nurturing a foundation of resilience across the lifespan.

This conference aims to bring an awareness and understanding of the neurobiology of behaviour and social engagement. This understanding can be applied to trauma, autism, learning difficulties, oppositional and other maladaptive type behaviours, and sensory processing difficulties.

This conference is relevant for everyone who is interested in child development and concerned with supporting anyone who has experienced disruption during their lifetime. This includes individuals, parents, teachers, psychologists, occupational therapists, medical practitioners, social workers, mental health practitioners, disability workers and communities who care about understanding others.

This conference coincides with a time when we need, more than ever, to find empowering ways to meet and transform life’s challenges into meaningful and health-giving opportunities – that not only strengthen connection with one another but also with the Earth itself.

Kim Barthel – Occupational Therapist; Sensory Integration Specialist (Canada).
