A DAY WITH WORLD-LEADING EXPERT DR BESSEL VAN DER KOLK

Many of us here at the Institute were excited to attend the fantastic conference with Dr Bessel Van Der Kolk, world-leading researcher and clinician on trauma and traumatic stress. Hosted by our sister organisation the Centre for Child Mental Health, Van Der Kolk explored how the long-term effects of extreme stress on brain, body and attachment systems can be effectively healed by a whole range of interventions. Such a fantastic day and certainly one of the highlights of 2018. For those who missed it, do look out here and on the CCMH website for more amazing talks by preeminent psychotherapists and clinicians.

SENSORY ATTACHMENT INTERVENTION. A day with Éadaoin Bhreathnach

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Occupational Therapist and Attachment Counsellor, originator of Sensory Attachment Intervention, Éadaoin runs her own private clinic in sensory-attachment intervention in Ireland. She provides training and sensory attachment assessments for many children with both sensory and attachment issues.

Delegates will also learn about differentiating between sensory and attachment-based behaviours, and about adapting sensory processing interventions for attachment-trauma, with interventions specific to the emotionally avoidant child and the emotionally reactive child. She will also provide a neuro-behavioural analysis of how sensory processing difficulties can manifest in particular behaviour problems. Finally, she will address food, how it triggers certain emotion neurochemicals, and the use of a specific sensory-attachment diet of food and play to match the needs of individual children.
