Course Description

Self regulation is one of the most common reasons clients get referred for occupational therapy services. Self-regulation is defined as the ability to adapt our neurological arousal, emotional state, attention, and behavior in accordance with the demands of the situation. It is widely regarded as an underlying skill critical to behavioral self-management, emotional control, and social learning.

The Powerfully You curriculum is a series of lessons designed to teach fundamental skills and concepts that encourage self awareness and enable self regulation, leading to improvements in emotional mastery. Powerfully You provides a lens through which individuals can view themselves and others in a positive light. This lens values strengths, individual differences, and sees the whole person from a perspective of compassion and curiosity.

Lessons taught in this curriculum include Body Sensing, Body Battery, Body Activation, Tools and more. The concepts taught in these lessons include mindful awareness, awareness of body sensations, self assessment of body activation and emotional activation, tools to shift body activation and sensations, tools to shift emotions, skills for tracking and changing habits, practices to cultivate self compassion, and cognitively based inquiry techniques. Activities chosen are research and trauma informed. The 8 hour provider certification course will teach background theory, familiarize therapists with the interactive lessons, and provide implementation and goal setting guidance.
