Mim Ochsenbein, MSW, OTR/L, will teach you how to apply the sensory processing approach to psychotherapy for optimal results with children and adolescents.
Sensory processing is a key element of your clients’ ability to function in daily life. In this seminar you’ll learn the sensory-based gaps found in the mental health treatment of children and adolescents with Autism, ADHD and Anxiety disorders, and how to treat them.
Using her unique and specialized skill sets as a social worker and an occupational therapist, Mim will show you new and effective tools to address self-regulation, relationship development and executive functioning. You will be able to identify and immediately implement key sensory changes to:
- Enhance therapeutic interactions
- Improve regulation across environments
- Increase organization and successful completion of tasks
- Attain optimal arousal for increased engagement in the therapeutic process
Through case examples, videos, interactive opportunities, role play, and small group collaborations, you will walk away with a new and clear connection between these conditions (Autism, ADHD and anxiety) and sensory processing deficits! Integrating these simple and effective sensory-based strategies immediately into your mental health practice will increase results and improve your client outcomes!
