Adjunctive therapies are interventions that combine well with clinical biofeedback, neurofeedback, and psychotherapy. These adjunctive techniques augment the therapeutic effect of biofeedback, neurofeedback, and psychotherapy. The combined therapeutic effect of biofeedback and adjunctive skills together is often greater than the effect of either intervention alone. Regular home practice of adjunctive relaxation skills improves basal autonomic nervous system regulation and reduces the onset of problematic symptoms. This Webinar introduces seven adjunctive therapies, including progressive muscle relaxation, autogenic training, paced diaphragmatic breathing, guided imagery, meditation, mindfulness, and expressive writing. Three to four of them will be demonstrated, as time allows, and brief clinical vignettes will illustrate the use of the adjunctive techniques with clients. Each of these skill sets can be administered on its own, with therapeutic effect, or provided in combination with clinical biofeedback and neurofeedback as a treatment package.
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:
- Identify appropriate moments in therapy for introduction of an adjunctive technique.
- Compare four or more adjunctive therapies for combination with frequently used and personally preferred biofeedback/neurofeedback interventions and protocols.
- Explain evidence-based therapeutic benefits of two or more adjunctive therapies.
- Discuss use of adjunctive techniques as homework during the course of self-regulation oriented therapy and as prescription for post-therapy maintenance.
- Identify strategies for usi9ng culturally appropriate adjunctive interventions with diverse populations.

AAPB is committed to accessibility and non-discrimination in its continuing education activities. Participants are asked to be aware of the need for privacy and confidentiality throughout the program. If program content becomes stressful, participants are encouraged to process these feelings during discussion periods. If participants have special needs, we will make every attempt to accommodate them in compliance with the ADA act.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Those who attend this event in full and complete the appropriate evaluation form will receive CE credits. Those arriving more than 15 minutes after the start time or leaving before a given activity is completed will not receive CE credit.
Grievance Policy: AAPB is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists. They will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of program participants. If participants have special needs, we will attempt to accommodate them. Trainings are held in locations accessible to persons with disabilities. Accommodations will be made if requested. While AAPB works to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which will require intervention and/or action on the part of AAPB. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances. When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance and expects action on the issue, the following actions will be taken: 1. If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The CE Coordinator will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual. 2. If the grievance concerns a workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the CE Coordinator will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action during a workshop or conference, the CE Coordinator or his/her representative will: a. attempt to move the participant to another presentation or; b. provide a credit for a subsequent presentation or; c. provide a partial or full refund of the registration fee. Actions 2b and 2c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the grieved individual. 3. If the grievance concerns the business practices of AAPB, in a specific regard, the CE Coordinator will attempt to arbitrate. There is no commercial support for this program nor are there any relationships between the CE Sponsor, presenting organization, presenter, program content, research, grants, or other funding that could reasonably be construed as conflicts of interest.
