Sensory Wellbeing and Grounding Tools

Evolve Events

Event outline

When our body is relaxed, it is easier for our brain to choose how to cope with the situation.

Grounding techniques are sensory experiences which ground or “anchor” us in the present and help us manage emotions and maintain well-being. It is all about our ability to use our 5 senses to comfort and be kind to ourselves at times of distress. Creating sensations that say ‘there is no emergency’ helps calm the body’s alert system so the brain (prefrontal cortex) can regain its ability to think.

This course explores a range of sensory activities which can be used both for yourself or with clients you may be working with.

The activities are easy, safe, low cost and most are suitable for children or adults.

Professionals often use these techniques to assist clients to remain connected to the present, and help them avoid distress, memories, flashbacks or intrusive thoughts that they can’t yet cope with.

The tools can be especially helpful for people who experience anxiety, depression, PTSD, dissociation, along with those with experiences such as trauma, recent bereavement or chronic illness.

However, anyone can use sensory tools for self-soothing, to help us calm down, relax after a tough day or as an indulgent and delightful way to enhance personal wellness.

This course introduces the theory behind sensory tools and what makes them effective and also allows participants to actively experience a wide range of tools and provides take home resources.

Each course includes:

  • engaging, up to date materials
  • take home reference package with templates and free on-line resources
  • all day catering and beverages - with dietary needs catered for
  • post-course contacts for help and advice
  • certificate of attendance
