Embodied Sensation: Harnessing the Power of Interoception and Proprioception- Live w/ Recording
September 30| $200
Updated Course: Expanded Content for One-Day of Learning!
Recording Access Available!
Proprioception and interoception are frequently discussed within the field of occupational therapy to describe one’s awareness of their body position relative to the world around them and internal signals. For individuals who experience difficulties with sensory modulation and sensory processing, inadequate interoceptive and proprioceptive awareness may contribute to struggles with body awareness, breath regulation, adaptable states of arousal, organized movement and praxis, and regulation and awareness of homeostatic functions and affective emotion. 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 (“minimal self”) and body mapping for enhanced body scheme, as well as movement and breath as a means to support 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.

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 inefficient respiratory patterns and their influence on arousal, affect regulation, and the capacity for one’s movement to serve as a regulator
- Identify at least three different treatment activities designed to provide precise awareness and integration of vestibular/proprioception and interoception that can be utilized across environments.
