About the event

“Sensory processing is the process that organises sensation from one’s own body and the environment, thus making it possible to use the body effectively within the environment”.

This workshop will explore how our 8 sensory systems work; highlighting developmental stages to the senses, education relating to how we use senses in our daily living as well as why and how our senses all work together in order to help us understand how we engage with our environment. The workshop will offer ways in which this knowledge can transfer into sessions with our clients. There will be an emphasis on how trauma impacts our sensory system, often resulting in hypervigilance in our bodies and I will also share how I have used sensory processing methods in my own work, predominately within eating disorders; acknowledging how this illness can heighten a person’s response to sensory input.

The workshop will involve psycho education around the 8 senses (taste, smell, touch, sound, visual, vestibular, proprioception and interoception), as well as experiential tasks for participants to learn about their own sensory processing and gain ideas of how they might use these methods in the therapy space with their own clients.
