The workshop will explore how faulty neuroception can have an impact on autonomic regulation and social behavior and how understanding the features that trigger different neuroceptive states (safety, danger, and life threat) can be used as a strategy of treatment.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the features in social interactions and in the environment that trigger “neuroceptive” responses.
  2. Explain how physiological state can contribute to distortions of intent during social interactions.
