This workshop covers the fundamentals of assessment (EEG and stress profiles) plus how to set up training programs that combine neurofeedback and biofeedback to ameliorate the difficulties demonstrated during the assessment.
This workshop offers two distinct yet complementary session models for children and adolescents, which can be integrated as a systematic approach in therapeutic settings and with a variety of modalities of biofeedback.
This course will provide technical background and practical applications for training the whole brain using EEG feedback techniques including coherence, synchrony, and asymmetry, using a variety of methods including Z-score based training.
Theoretical discussion of the psychophysiology of cardiopulmonaryresonance,clinical results of the use of Coherent Breathing, and aninstructional/experientialsegment. A copy of The New Science of Breath (2nd Edition) will be provided to each participant.
This workshop will demonstrate--using equipment and actual participants--the recording of multi-channel EEG, the use of databases, advanced artifact rejection, and analysis for choosing appropriate protocols for treatment, and use of LORETA imaging.
Background in cardiovascular and respiratory physiology is covered so as to present the "resonant frequency theory" of HRV biofeedback. Clinical applications are then discussed and demonstrated so that the participant can carry out a protocol using HRV.
This is Part 1 of a two-part series workshop, but it can be taken independently. This workshop will present the advances in the diagnosis of Autism, Aspergers and ADD using interviews, behavior rating scales, continuous performance tests and QEEG.
Special AAPB Division, Section, Business and Educational MeetingsAAPB currently has seven Special Interest Sections and two Special Interest Special Presentation by Robert Thatcher, PhD, Applied Neuroscience
Open those who are interested in research and practice in neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback).
EMG Biofeedback: An Essential Component of Neuroplascticity After Central Nervous System Damage will be presented by Bernard S. Brucker, PhD, ABPP, University of Miami School of Medicine
The Surface EMG Division within AAPB began as the Surface EMG Society of North America (SESNA). Our main aim is to promulgate the appropriate use of surface electromyography techniques within the context of applied psychophysiology. We provide a track at the Annual Meeting, basic workshops, and Internet dialogue on members' interests.
Mind-body medicine as a title is widely used today and has significant name recognition with both public and professional audiences. It is also an area of significant research funding by the NIH's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR). AAPB's Mind-Body Medicine Section will tap into this growing public, professional and scholarly interest. The section will focus on applied psychophysiology as the common interface or theme to unite the varied elements of this rich domain. The goal is to increase participation in our organization by creative thinkers, teachers, researchers and explorers in the areas of meditation, distant healing, prayer, hypnosis and imagery, yoga, intuition and dreams, psychoacoustics, qi gong and much more.
Dr. Frank Andrasik, editor of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, and Dr. Donald Moss, editor of Biofeedback, invite you to visit with them and share your ideas on journal manuscripts and magazine articles. Bring your ideas.
Special Presentation by Thomas Ritz, MD, Southern Methodist University
The Applied Respiratory Psychophysiology Section promotes scientific and clinical activities in the application areas of respiratory retraining for treating psychological and physical symptoms, and the management of respiratory diseases. Most Mind/Body disciplines are included in our interest area. It also fosters research on the causes and effects of hyperventilation and effects of respiratory rhythms on other physiological systems including the body's homeostatic reflexes. The section sometimes offers workshops and speakers of special interest to our members.
The Education section is the oldest section within AAPB. It represents a long-standing interest in the most active aspect of biofeedback-the development of health changes through education. The focus of the section is not clinical education, such as training clinicians about the technical aspects of biofeedback, but instead assisting biofeedback professionals as educators and supporting applications of biofeedback in an educational setting. The mission of the section is: To represent and strengthen the activities of educators and education within AAPB by promoting opportunities to exchange and disseminate information, materials, and educational techniques to the AAPB membership and to the public.
This section was formed to create an alliance of biofeedback professionals in order to support, protect, and enhance recognition of unlicensed biofeedback practitioners. Our members include biofeedback professionals who are researchers, rehabilitation specialists, educators, stress management counselors, health care specialists, and other biofeedback consultants who are not recognized under a specific license. Without a license, however, many of these same people who have contributed so much are not recognized as professionals, and may have their practice restricted. We urge all unlicensed biofeedback practitioners, regardless of their specialty (EMG, EEG or general) to join our section.
The International Section encourages the worldwide: 1) promotion, development and improvement of scientific research and clinical practice; 2) promotion of high standards of professional practice, peer review, ethics and education in biofeedback; and 3) dissemination of information about biofeedback to members and the public per se. Members have an opportunity to be involved in the governance of the Section, develop a network of international contacts dealing with similar issues, clarify how AAPB and the Section can better meet their needs, and can contribute to the expansion of biofeedback worldwide.
The Optimal Functioning Section was organized to discuss and explore uses of biofeedback and applied psychophysiology for optimizing health, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual functioning, and peak performance fields. The section holds a meeting in conjunction with the Annual Conference, and sponsors invited symposia and presentations from recognized experts.
Attention to ethics in clinical practice is assuming a larger role in all that we do to provide quality health care services. The goal of this workshop is to review the ethical imperatives inherent in biofeedback service delivery through lecture, case study and discussion. 2 Category A accredited hours of continuing education.
Come join us for an informal gathering and bring your questions for our experts. You will be able to meet our current board members to discuss mentoring, the University Initiative, international certification, etc. We hope to see you there!
This workshop will introduce clinicians to an integrated intervention model, which draws on coherent breath and hrv training to potentiate the clinical impact of the alpha asymmetry protocol for treatment of affective disorders.
