Abstract/Description

This study will examine the relationship between sensory modulation, anxiety, and interoception in typical adults. The negative impacts of sensory modulation disorder (SMD), anxiety, and altered interoceptive awareness (AIA) on daily occupations reinforce the need for the study. Our research question asks: Is there a relationship between sensory modulation, anxiety, and interoceptive awareness in a typical adult population? The purpose of this study is to identify and recognize, if any, correlations between the three disorders SMD, anxiety, and AIA. The proposed study hypothesizes that a potential correlation between SMD, anxiety, and AIA may be found in a typical adult population. All participants must be at least 18 years of age or older and typically functioning. Data will be collected from a convenient, snowball sample from Marin County, San Francisco County, Santa Clara County, Orange County, and San Diego County in California. All genders, ethnicities, and races are welcome to participate in this study. Each participant must complete the entire survey(s) in order to be included in this study. Any partially completed surveys will not be considered valid for this study. This cross-sectional, exploratory study will analyze the relationship between scores on four self-report surveys collected online via Google Forms including State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36), Sensory Responsiveness Questionnaire (SRQ), and Multidimensional Assessment of Interoceptive Awareness (MAIA). An informed consent form must be signed electronically by participants prior to beginning. Descriptive statistics will be used to describe participant characteristics, means and standard deviations. Correlation between all constructs will be measured by Pearson’s correlation coefficient using SPSS (version 22).

Keywords: occupational therapy, occupations, trait anxiety, state anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, sensory modulation disorder, sensory processing disorder, sensory over-responsivity, sensory under-responsivity, Ayres sensory integration, interoception, interoceptive awareness, interoceptive sensibility, interoceptive sensitivity, insular model of anxiety
