Mindful Body Awareness for Self-Care: Interoceptive Skills for Health Care Professionals
taught by Cynthia Price, PhD, MA, LMP
Mindful attention to the body, involving interoceptive awareness (i.e., awareness of inner body sensations), is a powerful tool for regulation and self-care. For health professionals, mindful body awareness can be useful to facilitate presence in your practice and protect against burn-out.
These tools may also be useful to your clients, particularly those who are highly stressed or anxious, or disconnected from their bodies due to physical or emotional pain, or trauma. In this one-day class you will learn some simple mindful body awareness tools to use in your practice for self-care, and these same tools can also be taught to your clients to facilitate their own awareness and self-care.
