1:30-2:30  Neurotoxicity: Assessment and Treatment Concerns

David Cantor, Ph.D.

Many factors can adversely affect the progress and success of neurotherapies. Of increasing concern in mental health disorders is toxin exposure and its effects on metabolic systems and

brain function in particular. This workshop is intended to provide an overview of types of toxins and related physiological dysfunction that may undermine therapeutic success and develop a basic knowledge of how such factors affect brain function and consequently behavior. Methods of identifying such toxins and helping the client prevent exposure or seek services to remediate body burden levels of toxins will be reviewed. (1.0 CE/CME-Intermediate)

*Concurrent Mini-Workshop: During this time Peder H. Fagerholm, Ph.D. will conduct one hour mini-workshops including Electrodermal Responses Biofeedback, Neurofeedback, Electromyography Biofeedback, Heart Rate Biofeedback, Neurotechnology 1, Neurotechnology 2, Respiration Biofeedback, and Temperature Biofeedback. Mini-workshops are available by appointment. Sign-up on posted sheets for your designated times at the conference. (1.0 CE/CME)

2:30-3:30  Oxidative Stress, Excitotoxicity and qEEG

Richard Soutar, PhD
James Hopson, D.PSc

Many clinicians have begun to recognize and report qEEG patterns associated with milder forms of metabolic disorders which appear to limit or reduce response to NFB training. Many of these disorders appear to be related to a variety of environmental stressors that are only just beginning to be identified. By raising awareness of the features and sources of these disorders as well as their impact on the EEG we may be able to enhance efficacy of NFB. (1.0 CE/CME-Intermediate)

James Hopson, D.PSc

The gap between physical and psychological health narrows as the belief systems surrounding separateness and holism are questioned. Increasing research shows that mineral balance and the foods we eat have a direct effect on our psychological state. Clear links between nutritional balance and psychological state, and a simple method to assess nutritional balance will be presented. (1.0 CE/CME-Intermediate)

Tom Gross, President of SBCNA

8:30-10:30  Mindfulness-based Biofeedback: Clinical Applications

Urszula Klich, Ph.D.

Mindfulness-Based Biofeedback is based on merging two scientific methodologies into a modality that is useful for clinical practice. Eastern Meditation techniques are integrated with state of the art technology of biofeedback in this Mindfulness-Based Biofeedback program. Individuals with complex medical diagnoses often experience physical and emotional needs that fluctuate considerably, presenting a challenge for treatment. The resulting psychological impact is often inadequately resolved with an exclusively medically based program. Likewise, clients with less severe difficulties can benefit from this therapeutic technique. A truly holistic treatment approach responds to the need for an integrative model that combines mind-body medicine to more thoroughly address both physical and psychosocial needs. Incorporating biofeedback and mindfulness training into treatment to develop a more educationally focused model achieves this goal. Research behind this approach will be discussed and guidelines for effective and evidence-based practice will be offered. (2.0 CE/CME Intermediate)
