This year’s 2017 LiveTalk Series will take on a new look as we offer a new evening lecture format. For this year, instead of our usual discussion format, we will offer an hour lecture on review of the literature on a given topic related to sensory integration and evidence-based practice. Our goal this year is to update you on the latest research in specific areas of practice related to sensory integration and to facilitate translation of this research to evidence-based clinical practice. EBP involves assessment and integration of many types of research evidence and this series will present research from all areas of EBP practice. We hope that you will join us for this exciting new series.
This lecture will discuss the evidence related to sensory integration deficits and sensory-based interventions in relation to mental health concerns. There has been an increased awareness that many individuals with sensory integration problems have mental health concerns. Similarly, many individuals with primary mental health concerns demonstrate sensory processing problems and benefit from the use of sensory integration intervention and sensory-based strategies. The talk will explore the evidence examining relations between sensory processing problems and mental health concerns and the use of sensory-based interventions with those with mental health concerns.
By the end of this LiveTalk the participant will be able to:
