The first step to controlling our emotions is understanding emotions based on how they are perceived in the body. You have to know exactly how you feel in order to control it!! 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 understand these internal body signals enables us to accurately identify and control how we feel: Are we Anxious? Getting Frustrated? Hungry? Full? In pain? Needing the bathroom? Many individuals with conditions such as autism, ADHD, depression, trauma, and anxiety disorders have difficulty with interoception, causing significant challenges in identifying and managing the way they feel. This presentation will provide participants with a firm understanding of interoception. The lecture will provide an overview of what the research has taught us about interoception, and explain how to apply this research when developing effective programming. The discussion will focus on the influence interoception has on many important aspects of life including emotional well-being, self-regulation, and social participation.
Many evidence-based strategies for assessing and improving interoception will be shared.
