21st International Symposium:
This year's 3S Symposium theme of Regulation: Foundation to Function allows participants the rare opportunity to examine the concept of regulation at deeper levels: theory to application, role to impact, concept to functional outcomes. Each of this year's 3S speakers bring a very special understanding and unique aspect of Regulation to our attention. Psychologists and Occupational Therapists will explore the role and impact of Regulation in relationship, trauma-informed care, and sensory treatment.
STAR Institute has teamed up with local community partner Building Bridges Therapy for this year’s Pre-Symposium Parent Workshop presented by local experts. Topics include the child’s sense of self, peer relationships, and strategies to carry-over therapeutic gains in the home and community. Participants will expand their understanding and resources with small group discussions, parent-to-parent networking and a panel Q & A.
Professional Pre-Conference Workshop:
This workshop will introduce participants to the STAR Frame of Reference, designed to support clinical reasoning when providing therapeutic services to individuals with sensory integration/processing challenges and their families. Examining and understanding the interplay between Regulation, Relationship and Sensory forms the basis of this paradigm shift in providing comprehensive client/family centered services. Theoretical foundations, application to clinical practice and supporting research will be presented in this overview. Video examples will provide additional support for presented concepts and discussion.
• Discuss the interplay between Sensory Processing, Regulation and Relationship and their impact on function
• Differentiate characteristics of subtypes related to challenges in sensory integration/processing
• Identify underlying principles of the STAR PROCESS approach to intervention
• Identify research literature that supports the presence of sensory processing challenges as well
• Explain the importance of active inclusion of the family in the treatment process
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
