Description: Introspection has become quite the “buzz” word today as more research emerge with regards to its’ connection to the gut, the insula, and the brain. Maude will cover pertinent research from A.D. Craig, as she will also discuss assessment and intervention from Kelly Mahler’s (MS, OTR/L) perspective. She will also add a discussion on the Polyvagal Theory of Dr. S. Porges and will being all of this together in a practical way, making the science sensible to use in every day sessions. Maude will also include noted comments on Mindfulness practice and the use of “quieting the mind” to influence body awareness, praxis and occupational function. Whether you are coming from a social-emotional perspective or postural-praxis perspective, this workshop will influence your thinking in chasing the “why” in your clients.
