About The Name
Perceptual Positions is a psychological term meaning "a complex system may look very different, and different information will be available, depending how one looks at it, and one’s point of view."
The name Perceptual Positions is a reflection of my experience of living with PTSD. In addition to how PTSD has affected my individual perceptual position, my involvement and use of my ability as a guide to blind and visually impaired athletes further enhances my perceptual points of view.
My personal perceptual positions when I am engaged in various life situations directly reflects how I live with PTSD. And in guiding blind and visually impaired athletes, I have learned that I must provide meaningful verbal and tactile cues to the impaired individual in order to achieve success. In both instances, information I receive and give is based on how I interpret my environment and how I experience myself in relationship to others.
