A conference helping us to
understand how we feel
Tuesday 6th November we arranged a conference where research and practice came together to help answer some of your questions relating to our internal sense - Interoception.
The day will provide researchers, professionals, carers & parents with information explaining what exactly this sensory system is. We will have lectures from some leading researchers in the area as well as practitioners in Occupational Therapy and SEN.
Merging how research is put into practice is so important for us all to learn from and to continue to improve the services and the care we provide.
Presenting at the conference are
Dr Jamie Galpin - The Bridge School, London -
