5 Senses Grounding Technique Poster

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

The 5-4-3-2-1 method is an effective grounding technique used by clients to help manage overwhelming emotions and regain a sense of control. It works by engaging the five senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch through a structured process.

The 5 Senses Grounding Technique Poster serves as a go-to guide that clients can easily access and use during moments of stress. It asks them to start by taking a deep breath and then noticing things they can see, feel, hear, smell, and taste. The poster’s design makes it an excellent addition to therapy rooms.

Practicing this technique helps kids and teens feel more relaxed, and combining it with deep breathing reduces cortisol (the body’s main stress hormone) levels. Feel free to explore more breathing techniques to introduce to your child by checking out our Managing Stress With Deep Breathing handout.
