Title / Synopsis: Healing Through Doing – The Day Therapeutic Community

Thanks to everyone who attended this session. The recording and slides are now on our recordings page.

Abstract: This talk describes the Ymlaen Day Therapeutic Community, an 18th month program for people with high risk coping methods and relationship difficulties. Through the process of taking on new roles, receiving peer feedback and having an equal vote in decision making, service users increase their functioning by reducing impulsivity and coping in different ways.  

We will cover how a program that gives power to service users was set up in an environment that valued protocols, policies and set ways of doing things. We cover the role of staff within the service and the outcomes so far. The most interesting parts of the presentation are the thoughts and reflections of the group members.

Winnie DunnDate / Time: Sept 21, 3.30pm-4.30pm (Session 3)

Title / Synopsis: Insights about Sensory Processing in Everyday Life: What do we know now? And what must we do about it?

Thanks to everyone who attended this session. The recording and slides are now on our recordings page.

Abstract: Participation is the most important outcome for everyone we serve. Recognizing that people in the entire population have sensory processing patterns that are both expected and unexpected, we can explore many ways to apply our craft for a participation outcome. Research supports use of sensory processing knowledge and skills within authentic contexts and activities; we can provide intervention using this interdisciplinary evidence. Prof Winnie Dunn will discuss all these factors in our webinar.
