March 2020 News

ATTACh
32nd Annual Conference
Minneapolis 1st – 3rd October 2020

Nick is delighted to be delivering a workshop along with Éadaoin Bhreathnach.

“Clinical Observations: A Trauma Informed Approach”

Clinical Observations is part of Occupational Therapists’ routine assessment. What hasn’t been considered to date is the impact of trauma on the child’s capacity to perform these test items. This workshop addresses this issue and presents a trauma informed approached to conducting Clinical Observations and other assessments.

Éadaoin Bhreathnach will also deliver a keynote address: “Sensory Attachment Intervention (SAI) – An Integrated Approach to Developmental Trauma”. We are also looking forward to many more of our Professional Colleagues presentations!
