Social skills program using LEGO - Starts in January 2019

Information about the program:

.               Collaborative play group

.               Children work together to build LEGO® models

.               They work in teams of three

.               Task of building is divided into different roles

This 10-week social skills program uses LEGO® as a teaching tool to promote social skills for children with challenges in the areas of language, turn taking, perspective taking and self-regulation.  LEGO® is classic, and an age appropriate medium for encouraging cooperation with peers.  LEGO® capitalizes on the fact that it is inherently rewarding and, offered in the right environment, naturally motivates aspects of constructive play.

Format of the program:

. 6 Participants
. 1 Facilitator
. 1 LEGO® Leader

1.5 Hour sessions (10 weeks)

During the first 45 minutes the triad (group of 3) take turns in the different roles to build a set. The last 45 minutes is creative build where the participants are encouraged to build whatever they want.

There are only 6 children in the program and 2 adults facilitating the program. There is a screening process to help identify the best group dynamics.  It is not the first 6 applicants to register that make it into the next 10-week program.  I consider the strengths and challenges of all the children who are interested in the program and then create the groups.  Ages may vary from 7 to 12 and it is for boys and girls. The screening process is free and takes about 30 minutes.  The screening typically takes place in the home of the family, however I do offer my office as an option.

My background:

I am a trained LEGO® Social Skills Facilitator, have a Bachelor degree in Psychology, a Master degree in Education, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Autism and Behavioural Science. I have worked for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board for over 12 years and I am a Lead Facilitator for a private company, developing and teaching social skills for teens diagnosed with Autism Severity Level 1. For the last five years I have used LEGO® in social skill programs, to improve social interaction and communication skills. I am also an active crisis counsellor registered with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (15 + years).

If you have any other questions, please feel free to call me at 613 296-8506.

Transforming the Experience-Based Brain: A Somatic Touch Model of Resolving Developmental Trauma with Stephen Terrell, PsyD, SEP - March - August 2019

Transforming the Experience-Based Brain (TEB) is focused on the lasting imprints of experiencing non-verbal Developmental Trauma and how the neurological regulation system is compromised.  This compromised system develops defensive accommodations to over ride the missing pieces of development which affect the client’s ability to learn, socially engage, use imagination, gain a greater protective of the world, and attachment.  The students will understand and gain both knowledge and skills in how the neurological regulation system works and experience in applying tactile touch in building capacity in the system.  This awareness of how the system responds to early ruptures is also powerful in repairing shock trauma in the client through the awareness that a stronger initial developmental platform supports the systems automatic healing to trauma. Somatic Awareness brings forth the clinicians ability to recognize dysregulation in the client and touch brings forth a safe and effect way to work in the system without bringing forth more overwhelm.  Even for those who don’t use touch in their practice because of external restraints, this method of working with intention and attention can bring about a sense of healing and relief for your clients.  Through experiences and process, the student will move through the healing process from understanding the basic physiology of trauma to more advanced skills of working within specific systems affected by early ruptures. TEB is a learning process for anyone who works directly with trauma including but not limited to Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Social Workers, Somatic Experiencing Practitioners, Massage Therapist, Body Workers, Acupuncturist, Counselors, Hakomi Practitioners, Sensory Motor Practitioners, Play Therapist, Physical Therapist, and Occupational Therapist. TEB is presented through a combination of lectures, videos, and actual experience of using somatic touch as clinician, client, and observer.  By adding skills each module, the student will develop a greater awareness of working directly with neurobiological ruptures in the system and the ways that these early ruptures have affected the clients. We will also bring into focus Maslow’s work on developmental platforms and integrate it with Porges work on Polyvagal System along with the impact regulation on the client’s ability to self regulate.
