Embodied Sensation: Harnessing the Power of Interoception and Proprioception

December 6, 2021

| $99

Join Sheila Frick for her New Course!

Recording Access Available!

Proprioception and interoception are frequently discussed within the field of occupational therapy to describe one’s awareness of their internal body signals. For individuals who experience difficulties with sensory modulation and sensory processing, inadequate interoceptive and proprioceptive awareness may contribute to struggles with body awareness, adaptable states of arousal, motor control, and regulation and awareness of homeostatic functions. Effective treatment strategies aim to modulate sensation, and support proprioceptive and interoceptive balance within the context of meaningful occupational participation.

Drawing from current science, this course will explore the neurological and anatomical foundations for proprioception, interoception, and vestibular processing. Practical application and discussions will illuminate how these sensations play a key role in self-sensing, body mapping for enhanced body scheme, and self-regulation. Therapists will leave this course with a comprehensive understanding of these key therapeutic concepts, along with a variety of practical and precise therapeutic activities that can be implemented across environments.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Distinguish between interoception and proprioception and their unique contributions to establishing one’s sense of self from a sensory integrative foundation.
• Discuss the interplay between proprioception, interoception, and vestibular processing for the purposes of self-sensing and self-regulation.
• Identify at least three different treatment activities designed to provide precise interoceptive awareness, proprioceptive input, and/or vestibular input that can be utilized across environments.
