Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT) is a novel, empirically validated program designed to teach interoceptive awareness to help facilitate self-awareness and emotion regulation. Interoceptive awareness is the ability to perceive, access and appraise inner body sensations. This program was created for clients who avoid or are disconnected from their bodies due to stress, pain or trauma. To address possible challenges of learning to access interoceptive awareness, MABT is delivered individually and thus allows for a flexible and individualized approach to teaching. Touch is used to guide and ground awareness to the body, and clients are coached to practice using self-touch for the same purpose. MABT is also helpful for people with chronic medical issues who wish to promote symptom management through enhanced sensory awareness. Notably, the ability to access and mindfully attend to inner body sensations is often not generally well developed and thus these skills can be useful for everyone interested in facilitating awareness and well-being, and/or expanding their mindfulness skills.
