He was very generous with his time and effort, and made a very strong connection with those in attendance. I cannot express how pleased I am with what I was able to accomplish!

with Dr. Steven Baskin

Dr. Steve BaskinDr. Steven Baskin

 

Friday, October 2, 2015 at Thought Technology, Ltd.
8205 Montreal/Toronto Blvd Montreal West, QC H4X 1N1

Limited space! Register prior to September 1, 2015 and take advantage of the early registration fee.

This workshop is an in-depth clinical guide to the many advances in the diagnosis and management of migraine, cluster headache, tension-type headache and their many variants. The workshop will first provide the participants with a thorough overview of the diagnosis of the different primary headache disorders. It will then explore the pathophysiology of the different disorders integrating neurochemical, physiological, behavioral, and psychological perspectives. Pharmacologic, psychophysiological, and behavioral treatment alternatives will be reviewed in relation to both clinical efficacy and underlying pain mechanisms. The workshop will help the biofeedback therapist understand the basics of successful headache diagnosis and treatment and better communicate with the medical community. Behavioral and psychophysiological protocols will be thoroughly discussed. This workshop will also review clinical studies on paradoxical effects of medication overuse in relation to treatment outcome. Chronic migraine will be thoroughly examined including the transformation process from episodic to chronic headache. Issues of psychiatric co-morbidity will be explored.

Dr. Baskin is a Co-Director of the New England Institute for Neurology and Headache in Stamford, CT and is an attending psychologist at Greenwich Hospital of Yale-New Haven Health. He had previously founded the behavioral medicine service at the New England Center for Headache. He is a past president of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB). He is a current member of the board of directors of the Headache Cooperative of New England (HCNE) and a past board member of the American Headache Society and the Connecticut Psychological Association. He is the educational director for the yearly Fall HCNE Boston Headache Symposium. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback and a frequent reviewer for the journals Headache and Cephalalgia. He lectures frequently at national and international meetings and has published extensively on primary headache disorders, most recently on comorbid psychiatric factors that may chronify migraine and complicate treatment.
