Dr. Cynthia Price, Founder of The Center for Mindful Body Awareness in a USABP Spotlight Webinar Series Presents:

The Use of Touch in Mindful Body Awareness Training: What Clinical Research Tells Us

  • This Workshop Comes with 2 CEU opportunities


  • Workshop Description

  • This workshop will focus on the use of touch in Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), a mind-body approach designed to teach interoceptive skills for self- care and emotion regulation.  Multiple research studies, including large NIH-funded randomized controlled trials, have examined MABT feasibility, acceptability, efficacy and therapeutic processes. We will discuss how touch is used to promote body/interoceptive awareness; the acceptability and safety of touch; research findings based on experience working with underserved populations, and people living with serious and co-occurring conditions such as PTSD, chronic pain, and chemical dependency. This workshop will also touch on the education and therapeutic skills important for therapists interested in learning this work.


  • Main Points of Workshop

  • The therapeutic processes involved in Mindful Body Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT) will be explained
  • Interoceptive Awareness will be defined
  • The role of touch, both by therapist and by client, for learning body/interoceptive awareness skills will be described
  • Research findings related to MABT studies, particularly related to the training of interoceptive awareness skills, will be reviewed.
  • An overview of the training offered by the Center for Mindful Body Awareness to support therapist skills in teaching these skills will be addressed.
