KATHY L

Creating A Sensory Tool Box for Emotional Regulation

3 CEH

 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Counselors will become familiar with the physiology of the mind-body connection, and role of the stress response in emotional regulation.

  • Counselors will explore the role of the senses to assist emotional regulation

  • Counselors will identify specific suggestions to assist clients to assemble a personal sensory tool box 

 

  1. The Fight, Flight and Freeze system hijacks us under stress, creating a host of physical responses. Addressing this physiological response happens most effectively at the sensory level. Developing a taste, smell, sight, touch, sight toolbox to self-soothe can create a helpful immediate intervention.
