Uncertainty is all around us, now more than ever. Now we are presented with a heightened sense of uncertainty around the economy, employment, finances, relationships, and of course, our physical and psychological well-being. This fear and insecurity can leave us in a stressed, anxious, and completed dysregulated state.
Sensory processing is the way we respond to the various types of information in our environment. We learn and grow through our senses, however, occupational performance difficulties due to sensory challenges can result from how we received, organize and use sensory information from the body and the physical environment. These difficulties can impact our ability to manage chronic stress.
In this webinar we will discuss a sensory approach to chronic stress, and how to identify our own sensory needs. We will also review ways in which workers can identify stressors in their work and life and take steps to better self-regulate sensory related challenges. We will also review steps that organizations can take to support workers in addressing these challenges.
