London, England (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
The Biofeedback Federation of Europe is pleased to announce that Sports Psychologist, Dr. Leah Lagos, will be presenting a workshop at their upcoming Annual Meeting taking place February 11-15, 2014 in Venice, Italy. In her workshop, "Applied Work with Athletes in Peak Performance and Sports," participants will learn psychophysiological assessments, biofeedback, neurofeedback, and cognitive strategies in order to help athletes maximize sport performance. According to Dr. Lagos, "Biofeedback and neurofeedback empower athletes, through self-regulation, by providing real-time feedback about performance. Consequently, athletes acquire the skills to perform at their peak under pressure and on demand."
At the two-day workshop, Dr. Lagos will describe the power, the necessity, and the practicality of combining psychological and physiological assessments and interventions to help athletes improve attention, thought control, self-regulation, and confidence. Dr. Lagos will present a model for intervention decision making, teaching participants how to implement individual and sport specific training for peak performance.
Interactive discussions and learning sessions, including the monitoring of a live physiological assessment and intervention, will be conducted with the use of Thought Technology equipment. Tools for marketing a sport psychology practice and sport psychology services to athletes, teams, and organizations will also be provided.
