Implementing the Interoception Curriculum in the School Setting: A Group Mentorship Program

$349.00 USD

This group mentorship program is designed for school-based professionals who have (or will have) a direct role in implementing The Interoception Curriculum. If you are anything like us, we get excited to first learn about a topic like interoception, but then reality strikes when we think about moving towards actually implementing these ideas. Sometimes getting started can be tricky—what should I do and will I do it right? Or maybe we get started and we hit a few bumps and don’t know the ‘correct’ response—what should I do? The doubt sets in. Plus, balancing all the other demands of our jobs while learning to implement something new can make it even more complicated.

Well, we can do this together! Join us in this intermediate level group mentorship for people that have a foundational understanding of interoception and want support with the implementing part. Each session will include information on troubleshooting common implementation barriers, how to watch for Interoception Curriculum wins and guided discussions to answer questions and learn from shared ideas.

Interoception provides the neurobiological foundation of self-understanding, self-regulation, self-care, and mental health thus supporting interoception growth is important to the well-being of all students & staff.  Despite this science, interoception-based approaches are not widely used in the school setting. Ironically, many times schools rely on social emotional learning approaches that are not in line with the most current research or even worse they use outdated compliance models that damage the interoceptive experience.

No matter where you school falls in the supports they provide, there is always room for growth. If you are ready to help your school shift forward towards affirming, meaningful support using The Interoception Curriculum, we hope you will join us!

Who this course is for:

  • You are a professional working in a school-based setting
  • You have (or will have) a direct role in implementing The Interoception Curriculum
  • You have either started using The Interoception Curriculum or plan to start soon
  • You completed the on-demand course: Providing Interoception-Based Supports in Various School Settings
  • When it comes to using The Interoception Curriculum, you have wins to share or barriers to problem solve (or just want to learn from)
  • You want to feel empowered with information you can use to create buy-in for a stronger interoception-informed approach to supporting students and schools you serve

 So, who are we?

Although we only met 5 years ago it feels like we have known & worked together for years. From the first time we met at a conference in Edmonton (Canada) we realized that we shared a lot of similar passions including how to best support the regulation needs of students in a variety of school settings. Over the years we’ve shared lots of conversations and ideas, and celebrated our professional wins and yes, even our failures. And we are so excited to share with you all that we’ve learned about implementing interoception-based supports in the schools.   

Anna Vander HaegheMore about Anna Vander Haeghe: Curious, passionate and focused, I have loved my journey of diving into interoception and how that relates to our experiences as humans. Weaving interoception-based practice into my work as an Occupational Therapist in Alberta, Canada has been life-changing for my students and co-workers. I have been an OT for 23 years working in a small rural community serving the entire live span. 10 years ago, I shifted to focus supporting children from preschool to high school.  I have mentored therapists around the world in ways to modify interoception work for our diverse students and look forward to sharing my experiences with you.

 

Kelly MahlerMore about Kelly Mahler: I am a fiery and passionate person that loves to crunch pinecones, cuddle with my 2 Corgi puppies and cook (sometimes poorly) with my family. I earned a Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Misericordia University, Dallas, PA and have been an occupational therapist for 21 years, serving school-aged children and adults. I’m winner of multiple awards including the 2020 American Occupational Therapy Association Emerging and Innovative Practice Award & a Mom’s Choice Gold Medal. I am an international speaker and enjoy presenting on topics related to the twelve resources I’ve authored including The Interoception Curriculum.
