A MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIRS:
The 50th annual AAPB meeting is but a short 7 months away. It promises to be a grand event showcasing our history and future...hence the theme “Rooted in the Past…Empowering the Future”. The purpose of this email is to ask you about the past…do you have stories to share, photos, memorabilia, equipment? We aren’t asking to send anything at the moment but just to let us know what is available. There will be an area devoted to history at the meeting and we’d love to feature what you might have. So for now—just let us know and we will be back as to how this will work.
Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, use the subject line: AAPB History.
Look forward to hearing from you,
Francine Butler and JP Ginsberg
The AAPB Annual Conference on March 13-16, 2019 in Denver will be AAPB's 50th anniversary year! The program will be rich with content and a huge celebration of the impact that biofeedback and applied psychophysiology has had on health clinical practice and scientific research.
The theme resonates with this idea: Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback: Rooted in the Past, Empowering the Future.
Please save the dates and make plans to attend the entire meeting. You won't want to miss the opportunity to attend practical workshops, learn from leading clinicians and researchers and check out the latest equipment.
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.
Make your plans to attend this special meeting and renew friendships that have endured since the inception of The Biofeedback Research Society. We are already hard at work creating a program that will reflect the AAPB's prestigious history.
