ONSITE WORKSHOPS

 
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Measurement and Feedback: Principles and Practices by Richard Gevirtz, Ph.D.

Dick GivertzRichard Givertz

 

Friday, June 14, 2019 | At Thought Technology's new location: 5250 Ferrier, Suite 812 Montréal, QC H4P 1L3

$350.00 USD/CAN. Early Registration by May 14, 2019 - $300.00 USD/CAN

This one -day workshop introduces the concepts of HRV that allow a window into Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) processing. The morning session explores the anatomy and physiology of the cardio-respiratory systems and the basis for the HRV measures. Participants will collect 5 minutes of resting baseline data and learn to interpret the measures to form judgements about the ANS for that subject. The afternoon session is devoted to HRV biofeedback. Topics include: Finding Resonance Frequency, Training at that frequency both in session and at home, and applications to stress related and anxiety disorders.

Richard Gevirtz, Ph.D. is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University in San Diego. He has been in involved in research and clinical work in applied psychophysiology and biofeedback for the last 30 years and was the president of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, 2006-2007. His primary research interests are in understanding the physiological and psychological mediators involved in disorders such as chronic muscle pain, fibromyalgia, and gastrointestinal pain. In this vein, he has studied applications of heart rate variability biofeedback for anxiety, pain, gastrointestinal, cardiac rehabilitation and other disorders. He is the author of many journal articles and chapters on these topics. He also maintains a part time clinical practice treating patients with anxiety and stress related disorders.

This workshop is NOT limited to current BioGraph Infiniti users only. Clinicians who have an interest in Biofeedback and in BioGraph Infiniti but do not currently possess our equipment are welcome to register!
