Training for Parents and Carers

senSI Write supports the development of handwriting skills by using a kinaesthetic learning approach

senSI is very happy to be able to offer face to face parent and carer training, which will be held at senSI in Mulbarton. Our training will provide parents and carers with a foundation of information that can then underpin any therapy offered to their children. This can provide some support and help parents identify the child’s needs as well as their own. The training can provide some ideas and strategies on managing difficult behaviour and help improve the quality of relationships within the family. Therefore the training scaffolds the therapy and enables parents to make sense of what their child might be experiencing, as well as making sense of their own experiences and responses to the child’s struggles. The training can also provide an opportunity to share experiences with other parents and be part of a community of like-minded people.


Developmental Trauma (DT) Training is to enable further understanding of what it means to have DT, what makes it different to general trauma and how it affects the development of children. It will help to identify signs of DT

Sensory Integration this session will look at the impact on you as parents who care for children that have gone through traumatic and difficult situations. We will look at strategies and resources for you as parents to take care of yourselves and the benefits of this.

Sensory Attachment and Secondary Trauma this session will look at 8 sensory systems, discuss SI difficulties and the impact this can have. We will explore link between sensory integration and attachment difficulties. We will give an overview of what SI and SAI sessions may look like and give sensory strategies for within the home and school. There will be reference to the work of Eadaoin Bhreathnach, Bessel van der Kolk, Patricia Crittenden and Stephen Porge

Mentalisation and PACE Training enables us to understand what might be going on in your child’s mind and how this reflects how you manage or think in terms of your child’s behaviour. It can provide strategies that can help the parent/carer to de-escalate high arousal behaviour.
