Fred SHafferFred Shaffer

 

With Fred Shaffer, PhD, BCB

Friday, May 13, 2016 at

Montreal West, QC H4X 1N1

Limited space! WORKSHOP FEES: $350.00 USD. Register by April 8 , 2016 and take advantage of the early registration fee. - $300.00 USD

This workshop provides practical techniques for increasing the effectiveness of HRV biofeedback. First, we will review heart rate variability, including its sources, factors that influence it, health correlates, and the benefits of increased HRV. Second, we will discuss how to obtain cleaner recordings using blood volume (BVP) pulse, the electrocardiogram (ECG), and the respirometer. Third, we will demystify HRV time and frequency domain measurements and explain how to interpret their values. Fourth, we will focus on how to recognize dysfunctional breathing and how these behaviors can threaten training success. Fifth, we will describe a streamlined technique for measuring your clients' resonance frequency and how to choose between competing breathing rates. Sixth, we will explain how to structure effective HRV biofeedback training sessions. Finally, we will survey effective home practice assignments to help your clients gain maximum benefit from HRV biofeedback training in your clinic.
