Session Description for 2/7 from 10AM - 12PM
Interoception is an important sensory system that helps us to feel internal body signals like a full bladder, growling stomach, tense muscles or speeding heart. Research indicates that our ability to clearly notice and interpret these internal body signals enables us to accurately identify and manage how we feel: Are we Anxious? Getting Frustrated? Hungry? Full? In pain? Needing the bathroom?
Interoceptive differences are very common in a variety of students and can result in difficulty understanding and regulating how they feel. Many times, our cognitive-based supports fall short with these students because they are missing the important body-based interoception foundation.
This course will provide an overview of what the latest research tells us about interoception as well as first-hand accounts from many of Kelly’s clients and friends. An evidence-based framework for supporting interoception connection will be shared, including multiple strategies for nurturing the 3 main aspects of interoceptive awareness: body, emotion & action. Several examples will be shared on how to adapt this framework and strategies to meet a student’s learning and processing needs.

Free for Members.
$10 for Nonmembers.
