Sensation Game

This site  The Web 

Welcome to Sensation Game TM 
 Sensation Game is a gentle, fun therapeutic game to help clients and families feel more connected ~ to their own nervous system, to each other, and to the world around them.  It is a sensational game for building self-regulation skills in children and teens who have experienced a significant trauma and may sometimes feel shut down, "disconnected" or numb.  The gentle activities engage our sensory selves using natural objects.  Developed by Kris Downing, LCSW, SEP.

"As a faculty member of the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute and an SEP who works with kids, I strongly endorse the Sensation Game as a valuable tool to help kids and families get in touch with their sensations and to play games that encourage face to face interaction."  Maggie Kline, MFT, SEP, co-author of Trauma Through A Child's Eyes, and Trauma Proofing Your Kids 
"This game is a wonderful tool to encourage children and adults to develop a relationship with their body.  It incorporates building the language one can use to attune to the body.  It fosters embodiment and empowerment, the gateway to resilience and healing."  Ana do Valle, OTR, SEP
