SEC05 - Mind/Body Medicine Section Feb 15, 2007 8:00 PM
  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.

SEC02- Applied Respiratory Psychophysiology Section Feb 16, 2007 12:00 PM
  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.

Thomas Ritz
SEC03 - Education Section Feb 16, 2007 12:00 PM
  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.

SEC01 - Allied Health Professionals Section Feb 16, 2007 7:00 PM
  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.
SEC08 - Performing Arts Section Feb 16, 2007 7:00 PM
SEC04 - International Section Feb 16, 2007 8:00 PM
  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.
