Proprioception and Interoception

Phoebe and Janet feel they need to add a couple of films to the series ‘Responsive Communication’, to talk about Proprioception and Interoception. This film discusses hyposensitivity to Proprioception and how, by paying attention to the feedback a person who is banging themselves or scrunching their toes, etc. we can help them feel anchored rather than floating and unattached, giving them some sense of where they are and what they are doing, and so reduce anxiety. The second extra clip looks at Interoception, the messages that we are getting from our internal organs such as heart beat, which inform  our brain of our emotional state and how, a better understanding of this also helps us to understand why Intensive Interaction actually works so well.
