Course Description

Mental Health Professionals are called to accurately diagnose and treat clients’ mental health and co-occurring disorders. However, Sensory Processing is widely unrecognized and potentially misunderstood in the mental health field. Mental Health providers can be at the forefront of screening and providing information, resources, and supportive services to individuals with sensory processing differences. This workshop systematically unpacks the mystifying concepts behind sensory processing and teaches participants how to apply this knowledge to their play therapy practice.


  1. Participants will discuss the background knowledge related to sensory processing.
  2. Participants will identify how to assess sensory processing differences.
  3. Participants will design 2-3 creative play therapy interventions to support sensory differences.
