KAREN TREISMAN : CREATIVE TOOLS & IDEAS FOR EMOTIONAL REGULATION
Time & Location
About The Event
As we know many of us and the children, parents, and adults we support can struggle with regulating their emotions. This might be due to worry, stress, trauma, low mood, cognitive difficulties, and various other reasons. With this in mind, it is crucial to support ourselves and others to regulate. This is a precursor to any work that can be done, we need co-regulation, before people are able to self-regulate. If people are in their survival brains, they cannot access their thinking brains, because brains in pain can't learn in the same way. Moreover, we can not regulate a child or adult if we or the people around them are dysregulated.
This workshop facilitated by award winning psychologist and bestselling author Dr Karen Treisman will present some creative, physical, sensory, and cognitive emotional regulation tips and tools which can be used and transferred to work with children, adult, and parents, including for our own regulation and wellbeing.
This will include some of the tools from her bestselling creations; Presley the Pug, The Therapeutic Treasure Box, and the Therapeutic treasure deck of cards.
This will also include breathing tools and technique, sensory ideas, creative extensions of the safe place exercise, grounding, and sensory boxes and much more.
- Attendees will learn an array of practical and creative tools and tips around supporting themselves and others to regulate.
- Attendees will learn about the difference between up regulating and down regulating ourselves and others
- Attendees will learn about how to use multiple different sensory systems to support regulation
- Attendees will have the opportunity to practice some breathing and calming exercises
- Attendees will learn how to take a traditional therapy exercise such as the safe place exercise and enrich and expand it using creative and expressive ideas.
