Effective sensory modulation is an effective intervention that is suitable in both clinical and community settings. It can help people feel calmer and less anxious and therefore reduces distress. This workshop introduces the theory of sensory modulation, and then expands into practical strategies that are useful in everyday life across a range of settings.
It will explain:
- How sensory modulation impacts self-regulation
- The ways trauma impacts the brain and sensory modulation
- The importance of sensory screening and how to do it
- The relation between sensory, emotions, and cognition
- The impact of sympathetic nervous system and “Hand model of the brain”
- How to use sensory tools to create sensory modulation
Who Should Attend
This workshop is ideal for clinical and allied staff, counsellors, social workers, key workers, and support workers who meet with service users in distress or tense environments.
Sensory Modulation is also a very effective skill set for teachers / educators where it is becoming common practice for schools to put a sensory corner into a room as a safe place for a child to calm down within.
