Theorie und Praxis der Sensorischen Integration in Verbindung mit anderen Behandlungsansätzen

Part of the Rehabilitation und Prävention book series (REHABILITATION)


Die Sensorische Integrationstheorie ist nur eines von vielen Behandlungsmodellen, die von Ergotherapeuten bei der Planung und Durchführung einer Behandlung angewandt werden. Im folgenden Kapitel liegt der Schwerpunkt auf der Anwendung der Sensorischen Integrationstheorie zum besseren Verständnis des menschlichen Verhaltens. Wir wollen erläutern, inwiefern diese Theorie als Grundlage für die Durchführung einer Behandlung genutzt werden kann. Als Ergotherapeuten geht es uns in erster Linie darum, die Funktionen bzw. das adaptive Verhalten unserer Patienten zu verbessern. In vielen Fällen muß die Sensorische Integrationstheorie daher mit anderen Ansätzen kombiniert oder gar durch diese ersetzt werden, um die effektivste Behandlung zu gewährleisten.
