Cynthia Price, PhD MA LMT is a Research Professor at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA and the Director of the non-profit Center for Mindful Body Awareness. Her clinical and research expertise is focused on interoceptive awareness (i.e. awareness of inner body sensations) and its role in health and well-being. She developed Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), an approach designed to facilitate interoceptive awareness and related skills for self-care and emotion regulation. Dr. Price’s research is aimed at the study of MABT within community care, particularly for those in recovery from trauma, chemical dependency, chronic pain or other life stressors. She has co- authored two scales to measure interoceptive awareness: the Scale of Body Connection (SBC) and the Multidimensional Assessment of Interoceptive Awareness (MAIA). Committed to increasing health care access to underserved populations, Cynthia works with local, national and international programs to provide and improve complementary and integrative health care through her research, teaching, and service.
