Play & Relationship

A Seminar From the Series "Best Practice OT"  

 

Play and the therapeutic relationship are core media of OT-ASI®. Therapists who want to improve their playfulness don't usually find many opportunities. This was the reason why we asked Judith, a SI certified OT and DIR®Floortime instructor, to develop this course for us.

 

This workshop is a lively, interactive, and very practical experience that covers unusual contents such as "having fun", "how to be playful", or "laughing about yourself".

SI Across The Lifespan

Date:  N.N.

Location: Vienna

Presenters: Kathryn Smith, OT, & Ros Urwin, OT, United Kingdom

Prerequisites: Introduction to SI

 

From 16 to 60 and beyond… The application and practice of Ayres Sensory Integration with adolescents, adults and older adults

2 day seminar from our series "Best Practice OT"

 

This workshop will deepen and enrich every therapist's understanding of how sensory processing and sensory integrative functioning impact our mental health and the development and maintainance of a regulated and adaptive daily life.  

 

In contrast to most other countries, SI started to spread across the UK from the field of mental health. That is why OTs from the UK are particularly experienced and advanced in the use of SI with adolescents and adults in the mental health area. They apply SI in an individualised, hypothesis- and data driven manner through direct treatment in the clinic, consultation with the client and relevant others, and environmental modifications. 

 

Themes:

  • What’s different? What’s the same? - Working across the ages with Ayres SI
  • Assessment
  • Why SI and how do we know it can make a difference? - Outcomes
  • Intervention approaches
  • Case Studies

 

Who should attend? OTs who work in psychiatric/mental health, pediatric or geriatric settings
