2012 Conference Workshop
Open To: Public / Practitioners / Trainees
Cost: 2-Day Symposium registration is $300, which includes all symposium lectures, lunch each day, and evening events/keynote.
Dr. Wolf Mehling will present his research on body awareness, how to measure it and how to understand the complex concept from different perspectives in science and society. Body awareness has been associated with such diverse, even contradictory, phenomena as hypochondriasis, rumination, hypervigilance, proprioception, interoception and mindfulness. He will clarify the concept and present results from a systematic review of self-report measures. His research includes focus groups with practitioners (including Feldenkrais® practitioners) and patients, who have defined multiple dimensions of body awareness as common ground of mind-body approaches. He will present a new questionnaire, which he has systematically developed, field-tested and validated in different populations.
