implicit and explicit memory
common symptoms, themes, and behaviours of traumatized individuals
about trauma as a sensory experience
providing sensory interventions
how to help someone who has experienced trauma

It has been my favourite presentation of the conference thus far. It related directly to my field and has sparked a lot of ideas and different approaches. Thank you so very much.
Your presentation was very informative, thank you very much. It makes me want to do better at my job with the children I work with, to try harder.
I appreciated the understanding I gained of how the brain functions during trauma and how to assist with regulation during these times.
This was an amazing session. Would love to spend more time with Lori discussing this topic. So informative and important to the field.
Thank you for emphasizing how important it is to validate kids experiences and for providing practical examples on how we as workers can assist them.
I apprecaited how you related back to the population we work with as well as how you related to my life - making connection - overall it was very informative and well done!
The most helpful aspect were the real case examples, practical strategies, and suggested supplementary resources.
It was so helpful to gain a better understanding of foster kids and how to support them!
I learned that kids do what they are capable of doing and that the brain controls actions at a subconscious level a lot of the time.
Excellent delivery of information! Wish the session had been longer. The most valuable aspect was the focus on trauma as a sensory experience - not something that can be solved with words.
Lori Gill was a fabulous speaker, great info. Would love to hear more.
