Neurofeedback Combined with Biofeedback: What you Need to Know for Assessment and Effective Training (day 1 of 2) Lynda Thompson PhD, BCIA-EEG and Michael Thompson,MD Reg. code 19-01 / Fundamental workshop / English language / Back to workshop schedule The scientific basis of neurofeedback (NFB) and the key measurement concepts (EEG frequencies and their behavioural correlates, LOERETA, 10-20 placement system, impedance, etc.) are covered in the context of teaching about EEG and autonomic nervous system profiles. These patterns differ according to symptoms, such as ADHD, learning disabilities, movement disorders (Tourette’s, Parkinson’s, Dystonia), Asperger’s syndrome, seizure disorders, anxiety, dysphoria with ruminations and head injury. This workshop covers the fundamentals of assessment (EEG and stress profiles) plus how to set up training programs that combine neurofeedback and biofeedback to ameliorate the difficulties demonstrated during the assessment. The underlying learning theory principles used in NFB training sessions are reviewed in the context of the steps our staff take during every training session.

Course Objectives:

Participants gain the following: (1) Knowledge: learn the fundamentals which underlie EEG Biofeedback (learning theory and neurophysiology) and Biofeedback of other modalities (skin conduction [EDR], peripheral temperature, respiration, heart rate [RSA] and EMG); (2.) Assessment: be able to recognize characteristic EEG power patterns in the frequency range 2 to 61 Hz which may be observed in a number of disorders and interpret QEEG brain maps combined with LORETA analysis, and apply knowledge of proper EEG procedures (electrode placement, impedance, recognizing and handling artefacts), in addition to learning how to assess the psychophysiological patterns that reflect stress; (3.) Intervention: develop a rational intervention based on this assessment data, which combines elements of neurofeedback, biofeedback and cognitive strategies for an individualized mind-body training programme; and apply and discuss this knowledge during a demonstration of a one (or two) channel EEG assessment combined with a stress assessment and during a training demonstration using script programs for various disorders including ADHD, Asperger’s, Anxiety and others as requested by participants.

Keywords: Neurofeedback, EEG Assessment, Biofeedback HEG (Hemo-Encephalo-Grahy) Biofeedback: Physiological Basis, Technology, Methodology and Clinical Applications Ernesto Korenman, PhD Reg. code 19-02 / Advanced workshop / English language / Back to workshop schedule HEG (hemo-encephalo-graphy) biofeedback is an effective and drugless treatment for many conditions involving, (mainly), the brain’s frontal lobe activation. HEG represents a simple and non-intrusive way of both monitoring and training cerebral function without the inconvenience of electrode preparation which other neurofeedback methods generally require. HEG is being used increasingly to treat and improve behavior, ____________________________________________________________________________ 5 12th BFE Meeting Salzburg /Austria February 19 -23, 2008 mood and attention disorders related to frontal cortex functioning: attention and concentration difficulties, ADD/ADHD, poor memory, mood disorders, and anger issues, autistic disorders, Asperger’s syndrome etc.

HEG is also used in many clinics to treat and improve medical conditions associated with frontal cortex hypoperfusion: migraine headache, epilepsy, schizophrenia, memory loss associated with ageing and senile dementia.

What is HEG?

When a specific area of the brain is activated to perform a task related to that particular region, the perfusion of blood to that area increases in order to bring oxygen, glucose and other basic nutrients needed to sustain such a change.This activation is always accompanied by a clear increase in cell metabolism required to take from those nutrients the energy needed by the cells involved. The above changes can be indirectly measured in various ways: for instance, by measuring the emission of a specific band of infrared that radiates into the environment from brain tissue below the skull as in passive infrared (pIR) HEG, or by measuring the color of the blood as reflected by the relative amount of oxy- and deoxy-hemoglobin in blood as in near infrared (nIR) HEG. The workshop covers the theoretical and practical aspects of this novel neurofeedback modality: the physiology underlying HEG measurements, the scientific background upon which this biofeedback application was conceived, the technology behind the instrumentation used to monitor brain activation in this way and the methodology and protocols applied to teach individuals to self-regulate this activity through biofeedback.

Who should take this ‘HEG Biofeedback’ Workshop?

Health care professionals, sychologists, clinicians, occupational therapists interested in enhancing their neurofeedback practice with this modality. Educators, school psychologists, special needs teachers interested in using HEG biofeedback to help children and adults suffering from inattentive conditions and impulse control disorders including ADHD/ADD.

Corporate & sport trainers, peak performance coaches, group facilitators and others interested in applying these methodologies in order to improve behavioral and mental performance.

Keywords: Brain-Blood-Flow, Frontal Lobe Self-Regulation, Electrode-less Foundations of Biofeedback: Didactic Training Donald Moss, PhD, BCIAC Reg. code 19-03 / Fundamental workshop / English language / Back to workshop schedule This workshop provides an introduction to the history, paradigm, and concepts of biofeedback. The workshop will introduce and demonstrate the most commonly used biofeedback instruments, including surface electromyography (SEMG), Temperature Training (TEMP), Electrodermal biofeedback (EDR), Respirator biofeedback (RESP), and Heart Rate Variability biofeedback (HRV). The workshop will provide an overview of treatment and training models using biofeedback training for common psychological and medical disorders. Current efficacy research on biofeedback will also be reviewed. The efficacy of many biofeedback applications compares well with that of widely accepted psychological and medical therapies.

Workshop Objectives:

1. Attendees will understand the basic paradigm of biofeedback and the history of biofeedback research and the clinical practice of biofeedback.

2. Attendees will understand the most commonly used modalities in biofeedback, including surface EMG, Temperature training, Electrodermal training, Respiratory biofeedback, and Heart Rate Variability biofeedback.

3. Attendees will learn common approaches to utilize biofeedback training in the treatment of common psychological and medical disorders.

4. Attendees will learn the basic principles involved in respiratory biofeedback training and heart rate variability biofeedback.

Keywords: Basic Principles of Biofeedback, Common Treatments and Applications The Polyvagal Theory: Neural Mechanisms Mediating the Interface between Social Engagement Behaviors and Heart Rate Variability Stephen Porges, PhD (day 1 of 2) Reg. code 19-04 / Universal workshop / English language / Back to workshop schedule The workshop will focus on the Polyvagal Theory, which links the evolution of the autonomic nervous system to affective experience, emotional expression, facial gestures, vocal communication and contingent social behavior. The theory provides a plausible explanation of several features that are compromised during stress and observed in several psychiatric disorders. The workshop has two objectives: First, to provide an explicit statement of the theory; and second, to introduce the features of a polyvagal perspective. The polyvagal perspective emphasizes how an understanding of neurophysiological mechanisms and phylogenetic shifts in neural regulation. This perspective explores different questions, paradigms, explanations, and conclusions regarding autonomic function in biobehavioral processes than peripheral models. Foremost, the polyvagal perspective emphasizes the importance of phylogenetic changes in the neural structures regulating the autonomic nervous system and how these phylogenetic shifts provide insights into the adaptive function and the neural regulation of the two vagal systems. The workshop will provide information on methods used to extract specific neural influences from the heart rate pattern and discuss clinical implications in terms of

assessment and treatment. The workshop will emphasize:

1) The methodology necessary to evaluate the two vagal systems through assessment of heart rate variability,

2) The neurophysiological mechanisms mediating the two vagal systems, and

3) The emergent clinical and behavioral consequences of activation of each vagal system.

Burn Out is a major factor in workplace stress and costs more than $300 billion each year in health care and work absences in the USA. The symptoms of burn out may differ in gender and range from exhaustion, depression, lacking social contact, sleep disorders, cynicism, ineffectiveness, and many physical complaints such as headache, stomach-ache, irritable bowel syndrome. Burnout is partially the conflict between what people would like to do and what they have to do. It represents erosion in values, dignity, spirit, and will—the erosion of the human soul. It is a malady that spreads gradually and continuously over time, putting people into a downward spiral from which it is difficult to recover. Burnout is a destruction of motivation caused by feelings of powerlessness, helplessness, and hopelessness. A sense of uncontrollability or helplessness is the final stage of burnout and is accompanied by depression and feelings of futility.

The workshop teaches strategies and buffers to avoid and reverse burnout. It includes teaching the following

skills and concepts:

Learn psychophysiological indicators to identify people at risk for burn out.

Understand individual’s vicious circle stress which contributes to burnout.

____________________________________________________________________________ 7 12th BFE Meeting Salzburg /Austria February 19 -23, 2008 Understand gender specific responses and treatment strategies. Teaching strategies to increase control and choice.

Teach how to achieve a sense of self control.

Integrate body and soul as a pathway to creativity and health through control over the individual physiology.

Practice biofeedback interventions to reverse the downward stress spiral for children and adults.

Overview detailed clinical training procedures.

Keywords: Stress models, Biofeedback, Self Control, Psychophysiological Patterns, Helplessness, A Psychophysiological Approach to the Management of Pelvic Floor Pain and Vulvodynia (day 1 of 2) Marek Jantos, MA Reg. code 19-06 / Advanced workshop / English language / Back to workshop schedule The workshop is for practitioners interested in the management of pelvic floor pain and vulvodynia, common causes of dyspareunia. Based on recent research participants will be introduced to a psychosexual profile of vulvodynia patients, focusing on the prevalence of the disorder, age of onset, age distribution of affected populations and a review of the impact of vulvodynia on the emotional, social and sexual well-being of this patient population. Utilizing data from psychophysiological profiles derived from electromyographic assessments, attention will be directed to the mechanisms by which psychological and physiological processes interact in the etiology of the condition. Management strategies will focus on the use of biofeedback protocols incorporating multiple modalities in normalization of pelvic muscle function and general management of pain and anxiety enabling patients to resume regular sexual function.
