The foundational four senses are key to overall regulation.

Why order the recording of this class called The Foundational Four- Sensory Regulation for Play/Child Therapists?
The world is currently in a state of collective dysregulation. Individuals everywhere are struggling. Children as well. A child can not engage their cognitive functioning without being regulated first. The foundational four senses are the fastest way towards a client being regulated in session. Learning can only happen when the body is safe and regulated. Come learn practical techniques!
