Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART) approach to transforming childhood trauma and its implications for learning
This talk will focus on exploring the foundational role that somatic regulation plays in supporting children impacted by Developmental Trauma (DT) to access necessary cognitive and relational capacities for learning and growth.
SMART is an innovative therapeutic approach developed to expand the repertoire of regulating experiences for traumatised youth.
The presentation will assist participants to learn to identify and use tools of regulation within the classroom and home settings to support youth engagement and learning. This is an innovative therapeutic approach developed by clinicians who initially met at the Trauma Centre in Boston, founded by Bessel van der Kolk.
