A reminder of infection mitigation in biofeedback practice is a good idea. This is a great article on the topic by David Hagedorn. http://www.aapb.org/files/public/Hagedoorn_Fall2014.pdf
The 51st AAPB Annual Conference will be held November 3-6, 2020 in La Jolla, CA. The theme resonates around the idea of connectedness: Positive Connections.
The goal of this conference is to bring clinicians, physicians, researchers and professionals involved with biofeedback and applied psychophysiology together to exchange information, ideas, scientific data and to share experiences. Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately "feed back" information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument. Hot topics in biofeedback (eNcompass) HRV, Neurofeedback, Optimal Performance.
