Course Description:
Mindfulness-based interventions have become increasingly popular in the last decade. There is a wealth of empirical research supporting effectiveness of such interventions in the treatment of various psychophysiological disorders, including chronic pain and anxiety. Mindfulness practices can also enhance success of biofeedback treatment for these disorders. Mindfulness has been shown to enhance internal awareness of physiological states, facilitate passive volition, improve attention, and encourage structural and functional brain changes conducive to lower sympathetic arousal. All of these factors are vital to biofeedback success. This webinar introduces its audience to the concept of mindfulness, provides a brief overview of the relevant empirical research, teaches beginning mindfulness skills and ways to integrate these skills into biofeedback practice.

Learning Objectives:
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:

  • Describe the concept of mindfulness
  • Discuss the empirical evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of mindfulness based approaches in the treatment of psychophysiological disorders
  • Begin applying mindfulness skills in your biofeedback practice
