Cynthia Price, PhD MA LMT is a Research Professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, USA and Director of the Center for Mindful Body Awareness.

The MABT approach includes psychoeducation, mindfulness and touch to teach interoceptive awareness skills for self-care and emotion regulation.

She trains clinicians in MABT through the Center for Mindful Body Awareness.

About Presenter Organization

The Center for Mindful Body Awareness is a non-profit aimed at providing professional trainings in Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), an evidence-based approach to teach body/interoceptive awareness skills for client self-care and emotion regulation. Interoception is the ability to access, attend and process inner body sensory experiences. MABT strategies are particularly helpful for clients with high experiential avoidance. Professional trainings for clinicians are designed as small classes to provide a supportive and individualized learning environment. The Center also works with organizations to train staff, develop programs, and evaluate MABT services.

Professional trainings in MABT are offered to psychotherapists, bodywork and somatic therapists, physical therapists, nurses, and other health professionals. There are multiple training levels available. For an overview of MABT Level 1, click here. MABT training can involve certification; to read about the advanced training options, click here.
