PrAACtical Resources: Virtual Calming Room
Whether it is the normal stresses of the day, or more timely issues related to the impact of coronavirus or civil unrest, there is value in taking time for calm reflection. In today’s post, we share a resource that can be used in face-to-face therapy, online instruction, and family counseling. The Virtual Calming Room, developed by Osseo Area Learning Center in Minnesota, is worth a look. You can select from a range of calming videos in several categories: Sound and Music, Visual Relaxation, and Guided Practice. Each one has a selection of short videos (1-6 minutes) that can be used in a variety of ways. There are also app suggestions to take these calming practices with us as we go through the day, and a resource section. You can view a tutorial here or the full site below.
Many thanks to the Osseo Area Learning Center for creating this peaceful space that can be used by educators, therapists, and families.
