Biofeedback monitoring allows clients to see what is going on in their body and how it reacts to various stressors. With this knowledge and subsequent training, individuals can learn to consciously regulate bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and muscle tension. For those just getting started in the field, there will be introductory workshops that cover: how to the use the equipment; how to place the sensors and ensure a good signal; and how to perform and interpret a basic assessment.
Registration is ongoing and is open to health professionals interested in expanding their knowledge of the field. The full workshop program is available on the BFE website. Among this year’s presenters are: Drs. Lynda and Michael Thompson who will teach a 5-day neurofeedback program, Dr. Richard Gevirtz on heart rate variability, Dr. Erik Peper presenting on integrating biofeedback and somatic feedback with self healing skills and Dr. Diana Martinez who will combine bio and neurofeedback with non-invasive brain stimulation. The sports track includes Dr. Lindsay Thornton, a sport psychologist with the US Olympic Committee and Penny Werthner, Ph.D., Professor and Dean of Kinesiology, University of Calgary.
