Sensory Based Strategies for Self-Regulation | 1 CE Credits

CARE Counseling has partnered with Stormy Hill, MD, from Recovery Ways to provide an overview on how our senses can help our brains and bodies stay more calm. The presenter will discuss how our senses impact self-regulation and how they can be used as tools to help calm or alert the brain and body. Specifically, they will share sensorimotor strategies that can be used to organize the brain and the many ways to use them with clients beyond just sensory rooms. During the presentation, they will explore the 8 senses, review alerting and calming strategies within each sensory system, and review the differences between a sensory diet and sensory toolkit. This presentation will introduce sensory and sensorimotor as a therapeutic lens for working with clients.
