Interoceptive Awareness in Body Psychotherapy Practice

13 Jun 2021 8:07 AM | Cynthia Price

A recent high-profile  journal, Trends in Neuroscience, put out a special issue focused on interoception. The issue includes articles written by the presenters at a NIH-sponsored 2-day meeting on the science of interoception.  The article titled Interventions and Manipulations of Interoception highlights the body-psychotherapy evidence-based approach Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), an approach designed to teach interoceptive awareness.  MABT teaches fundamental skills of interoceptive awareness and the more advanced capacity to sustain mindful interoceptive attention to somatic experience.  This approach is particularly useful for clients who are disconnected from their bodies due to high stress or patterns of experiential avoidance, chronic pain or trauma. The non-profit Center for Mindful Body Awareness offers trainings to therapists so that they can learn to integrate this approach into practice in order to enhance client embodiment, self-awareness, and emotion regulation. The next professional training is in September 2021,  click here for information and registration.
