Sensory Approaches is a collective term for a range of interventions that focus on supporting the client to achieve regulation of affect, attention and behaviour through regulation of bodily arousal states using a range of sensory modalities.* It is widely used in mental health services as a trauma informed approach, and as a first line intervention to manage difficult emotional states.
This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of sensory approaches, their application for people experiencing problematic substance use, and tools to assist people to self-regulate.
* From Sensory Approaches in Mental Health Clinical Capability Framework - QLD Health 2016.
Presenters: Michelle Taylor and Karen Petty
