Description

Do you work with clients who become acutely dysregulated and engage in behaviors which present as a danger to self or others leading to a seclusion and/or restraint episode?

Join Brooke Wimer, MOT, OTR/L, who has over 10 years of clinical experience in the field of occupational therapy. She has developed novel programming regarding sensory processing/ modulation to decrease self-injurious behaviors and the utilization of seclusion and restraint.

Brooke will provide an interactive course with hands-on opportunities to:

  • Provide trauma-informed, sensory supportive care in the hospital, classroom, clinic and home
  • Develop sensory-based, therapeutic techniques for your most challenging clients
  • Deliver research driven interventions for people with:
    • Intellectual disabilities
    • Sensory processing disorders
    • Depression and bipolar disorders
    • PTSD and anxiety disorders
    • Dementia and Alzheimer’s
    • Behavioral and personality disorders
    • Substance abuse disorders

These interventions are breakthrough techniques to apply with those who have mental health needs and traumatic histories. This workshop will provide you with countless sensory techniques for use in crisis situations and ongoing symptom management. This trauma-informed approach offers client-centered tools for feeling safe; sensory modulation techniques allow clients to direct their care by exploring and selecting modalities that work for them.
