Sensory modulation during COVID-19

Some stressors are a normal and essential part of everyday life, such as meeting new people, or waking up early for school or work. It is natural for people to feel greater levels of stress during more challenging situations, such as the breakup of a relationship, a natural disaster and especially now during the COVID-19 global pandemic. These situations can be a serious threat to ourselves and the people or things we value in our lives, and we may become really stressed and anxious. 

Te Pou has created a sensory modulation resource for people who work in mental health, addiction and disability who want some general guidance on how to use sensory strategies to support people during tough times.
