Course Description:
Experts in the growing movement of positive psychology maintain that connecting with others in meaningful ways helps us with physical and emotional health. Yet, despite technology, many would say that people are feeling more disconnected from others than ever before. At a time when major cities are signing a charter for compassion, it's easy to see the potential impact of increasing individual awareness of self and others through compassion. In biofeedback treatment we are able to facilitate an individual's learning of more effective coping, stress management, and overall psychophysiological rebalancing strategies. This webinar will delineate a program for merging compassionate practice components with biofeedback for a more integrative treatment.
The program will focus on providing a pragmatic set of skills for applying these methods in clinical practice with your preferred biofeedback modalities. We will explore how patients benefit from this combined training approach in accordance with a Mindfulness-Based Biofeedback model of treatment. Connections will be made with other compassion- based programs such as Cognitively Based Compassion Training and METTA or Loving Kindness practice. This program will refer to up to date research related to using compassion and biofeedback tools. Clinical Practice Examples will be presented of its use with several patient populations ranging from generalized anxiety to chronic pain and complex medical illness such as multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Furthermore, as compassion is associated with our emotional response to suffering, training in it is particularly relevant to those who provide care to others. Thus, we will touch on Compassionate Self Care and invite questions to promote dialog among practitioners to facilitate learning.
