Did you know that you can build more resilience by self-regulating your senses?! We experience the world through our 8 senses (yes I said 8) and how our nervous system process our environment through theses senses will determined our capacity for resilience.
Today, I'm super stoked to sit down with one of the most brilliant and passionate woman I know: my cousin.
Josée Meunier is an occupational therapist. She has been a Clinical-Educator and part-time professor at the interprofessional clinic of the University of Ottawa for the last 20yrs. She’s been working with children who struggle with learning (academic and motor), emotional regulation, anxiety, sensory processing and energy regulation. In her work, she uses principles from a variety of approaches like cognitive therapy, emotional freedom techniques, sensory processing, and different neurological theory. In the last year, she has taken her knowledge and passion to implement a physical and mental health program at a College in Ottawa to facilitate learning for students with various handicaps. But her most important title of all is the title of being my cousin!
