What is interoception?

Before we can start to manage our emotions, we first need to be able to notice, recognise and understand them.This skill is called ‘interoception’ or ‘mindful body awareness’. Without good interoception, children and young people might find it hard to notice a big emotion building up inside until it becomes overwhelming.
