An Interoception Year in Review

Hi, everyone. Kelly Mahler, occupational therapist, and I just wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU! Thank you to every single person that is a part of our interoception community. I feel so grateful to learn every single day about interoception, and this month we’re taking a moment to reflect back on the year. 

Interoception Topics

Over the course of the year, we covered so many topics related to interoception. Did you find any of the topics helpful?:

  • The connection between Autism & Eating Disorders and how interoception is commonly missed area of support
  • The importance of incorporating interoception supports for people that have chronic pain conditions.
  • The power of co-regulation and how we learn so much about our interoceptive needs through that safe relationship with somebody else.
  • Incorporating interoception supports with non-speaking clients.
  • Enhancing and embedding interoception supports in the school setting.
  • Alexithymia and how interoception is the neurobiological foundation of understanding how we feel, and so it has to be a natural consideration when we’re supporting someone that experiences alexithymia.
  • Frequently asked interoception questions and busting common interoception myths

My goodness, we have covered a lot this year, and we’re really looking forward to the future!

Favorite Memory

 

I think one of my favorite memories of the year is the fact that I was able to return to in-person teaching. I’ve love all of my interactions on Zoom, providing virtual and on-demand courses, and joining you on a lot of different social media platforms, but there’s just something extra sweet about that in-person learning and connecting with others. I went 961 days with only virtual teaching, and I finally got back out there on a real in-person stage and it felt so good!


This year was filled with lots of learning and lots of memories, and I’m really looking forward to the next year with all of you. So thank you so much, and until January of 2023, cheers.
