Sensory Processing and Disruptions

in Attachment

Understanding needs and behaviors associated with disrupted attachment is important for direct service providers in a variety of settings. And the connection with co-occurring disrupted sensory development is becoming more clear. Objectives of this training are:

  • To provide a general understanding of the negative consequences of early emotional trauma on the psychological, emotional, cognitive, interpersonal and neurological systems of children’s development, regardless of etiology.
  • To sort out attachment disorder (AD) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) so as  to choose the most effective treatment approaches.
  • To explore AD and PTSD as they relate to neurological development and the resulting neurological outcomes including sensory processing disorder (SPD).
  • To empower attendees to choose meaningful sensory-based activities to promote optimal functioning for children and adults.

Individual sessions are $75/per person, or $250 for all four sessions. Each session will be capped at 30
participants. Sessions will be held at the IU‐13 in Lancaster and breakfast will be provided.

Session One: September 21 (8 am to 10 am)
Transforming Leadership for Lancaster County
This first session examines the characteristics of transformational leaders and explores the topic by
identifying transformational leaders in the Lancaster County community. Through an analysis of this
leadership style, session participants will be able to integrate different motivation strategies within their
leadership practices to inspire and mobilize members of their team. Participants will be challenged to review
their current personal definition of leadership and discuss how the philosophy of transformational leadership
can be incorporated into this definition.

Session Two: October 5 (8 am to 10 am)
Serving for Growth
How do transformational and servant leaders work together? This session will explore how the values and
characteristics of transformational and servant leaders can be integrated to serve our community. Case
studies of servant leaders will be used to illustrate the philosophy of this leadership style and how it can be
used for personal growth. Participants will also be asked to explore their own values and how that relates to
their approach to leadership. Concepts from the Rokeach Value Survey will be incorporated to further the
examination of how values and servant leadership are interconnected.

Session Three: October 19 (8 am to 10 am)
Teaming for Results
As leaders, we become the architects of building and sustaining effective teams. This third session explores
the characteristics of high performing teams and explores how to integrate such strategies within our
organizations. Team dynamics, communication methods and performance metrics that lead to effective
team collaboration will be explored in this session. Leaders will challenged to transform teams through the
investigation and integration of their personal strengths as well as the strengths of their team members.

Session Four: November 2 (8 am to 10 am)
Diversifying for Stronger Organizations
Understanding the differences within our community and organizations is a key consideration for leaders. In
this final session, participants will explore how diversity can be used to develop stronger teams and also
explore the challenges associated with building a diverse organization. Participants will evaluate the factors
of successful relationships, including providing feedback, mentoring and managing conflict. How to generate
an atmosphere of inclusion when working with a variety of teams – both in person and virtual – will be
