Join us for the NRBS Spring Workshop
SATURDAY, APRIL 5 2014
8:30AM - 5:00PM
University of Connecticut
1 University Place
Stamford, CT 06902
This workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn from seasoned clinicians how to integrate innovative biofeedback techniques with your current practice and improve your clinical outcomes.
Underlying many of the issues we see every day in our practice are issues related to the regulation of affect. Biofeedback techniques are ideally suited to address these fundamental issues and are a powerful adjunct to traditional psychotherapy.
Biofeedback is a mirror that lets clients see their physiology in real time so they can learn to adjust these physiological responses with precise feedback under your guidance. Biofeedback can be as simple as using a thermometer on the fingers to produce temperature guided relaxation training. In Neurofeedback, the electrical activity of the brain, or EEG, is monitored and reflected back to the trainee to enhance the brain’s ability to regulate itself.
In this workshop you will learn powerful mind-body communication and interaction methods that potentiate your current clinical interventions.
