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.
Lie-detection with fMRI Objective and reproducible means of recognition of deception in others may drastically simplify the human condition. This lecture will discuss the implications of the recent experimental use of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging to discriminate lie from truth on forensic lie detection and our understanding of nature of deception.
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.
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.
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!
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.
