Register now for Becoming a Behavioural Detective: Sensory Processing, Mental Health, Trauma and Resilience

October 9 @ 8:00 am – 4:30 pm In this workshop, Kim Barthel (OTR) will share how becoming a “behavioural detective” helps us to better understand what’s going on behind the scenes for our clients. Many things impact behaviour that aren’t always front of mind: sensory processing issues, trauma history (even multi-generational), developmental disabilities, attachment strategies… Understanding these impacts, and how we can be more attuned to our clients who experience dysregulation, behavioural issues and mental health challenges, plays a significant role in how we can help and connect in a wide variety of contexts and environments. Viewed through the lens that all behaviour is a way of coping, Kim will discuss strategies to adapt the environment, focus on relationship, provide appropriate supports and help foster greater resiliency. The art of becoming a good behavioural detective – working to understand why children do what they do – involves not only what you do, but how you do […]

The BRIGHT Coaching Research Study is looking for participants!

Children develop critical skills during the preschool years. Children with developmental differences or delays may struggle with learning these skills, or learn them in different ways and at different speeds. Getting assessments or services for your child may take time. This can be difficult and stressful for families.   BRIGHT Coaching is a research study about how to support families while they are waiting for services. The study is testing to see if a coach program (telephone coaching sessions, online education and peer support) improves parent/caregiver health and family health care experience.   For more information, read our brochure or contact our Research Assistant, Shayna Pierce at spierce@rccinc.ca.
