Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study describes interoceptive processing in a sample of 706 adults, including those with no mental-health diagnosis and those with a diagnosis, including depression, anxiety, eating disorder, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Significant differences on the Multidimensional Scale of Interoceptive Awareness-2 (MAIA) and the Interoception Sensory Questionnaire (ISQ) were seen across levels of mental-health wellness. Implications for future research and practice are provided.
