Embodied Sensation: Harnessing the Power of Interoception and Proprioception- Live Webinar w/ Recording
December 15, 2023| $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-referencing and body mapping for enhanced sense of our physical and emotional self. 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.
