This course features the Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents and Parents (SITCAP) intervention model, proven in successfully addressing violent situations such as murder, domestic violence, and physical abuse, as well as non-violent grief- and trauma-inducing situations including divorce, critical injuries, car fatalities, terminal illness, and environmental disasters.
Filled with practical and proven activities for use with children and adolescents experiencing trauma and grief, this resource is based on the authors' experience working with all types of traumatic events in school-, agency-, and community-based programs across the country.
- Evaluate why children’s experiences, rather than symptoms and behaviors, matter significantly in determining what will be most helpful to their healing
- Delineate ways to be curious rather than analytical to allow children to safely bring us into their secret, often terrifying worlds, while revealing the private logic driving their grief- and trauma-related behaviors
- Summarize what is meant by sensory-based interventions and how they can help children reveal what they are thinking, feeling, and seeing
- Evaluate how to apply intervention to the 10 primary experiences of trauma and grief
- Delineate the critical timelines used to determine the most appropriate interventions with grieving and traumatized children within a school setting
- Assess how to determine the gains made by children when a formal assessment is not available
