Cynthia Price. Touch & Body-Oriented Therapy in Trauma Healing. A 2.0 Master Class
Today, I’m peeling back the curtain on my membership community, Trauma Therapist | 2.0, and letting you listen in on a 2.0 Master Class Interview, which is something I haven’t done before.
First, though, a giant thank-you to my sponsor for this episode:
Trauma may be a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Somatic Experiencing is a psychobiological method of addressing clients’ physical and emotional trauma conditions and helps to give voice to their experiences without a need for them to retell the story.

This Master Class is with Cynthia Price, a body therapy researcher. Cynthia studied massage therapy in 1981 and was in private practice for 20 years as a body psychotherapist before pursuing her doctorate to do research in the field. Now an Associate Research Professor at the University of Washington, her research is focused on the study of Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy (MABT), a body therapy approach developed to teach interoceptive awareness skills for self-care and to facilitate emotion regulation. This work, while helpful for people from all walks of life, is particularly useful for individuals who are disconnected from their bodies due to trauma, depression, chemical dependency, chronic pain, stress or illness.
The Director of the Center for Mindful Body Awareness http://www.cmbaware.org/ in Seattle, Cynthia is committed to increasing health care access to underserved populations and works with local and international programs to provide and improve integrative care through her research, teaching, and service.
