This is an introductory course that reviews the theoretical framework, scientific evidence, and scope of application of the DIR® model in Floortime intervention.
The DIR® Model describes the development of socio-emotional capabilities. It was developed by by the renowned American child psychiatrist Dr. Stanley Greenspan. The relationship-based intervention approach helps guide clinicians towards facilitating a comprehensive assessment and intervention plan tailored to meet the unique challenges and strengths of the child/client. The focus of the DIR® Model is centered around helping clients develop social-emotional capacities within the context of relationship as opposed to simply focusing on isolated behaviors. Floortime is the centerpiece of the model that involves the therapist providing developmentally appropriate relationship-based experiences, while considering the client’s individual differences, in order to foster social emotional development.
This introductory training will introduce parents and professionals to the Developmental, Individual difference, Relationship-based (DIR®) model-an established and recognized framework to understand a child’s development that was developed . DIR explains a child’s developmental stages, individual differences, and the role emotion and relationships have in a child’s development. The training will present an introduction to the DIR®Floortime approach, with the developmentally appropriate interactions, interventions, and practices geared to each child’s developmental profile. The DIR model is applicable for all children, teens and adults with developmental and emotional challenges.
