EARLY REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

The Biofeedback Society of Florida (BSF) announces its fall workshop, Excessive and Uncomplementary Screen Use; Effects on Health, Wellness, and Development: EEG assessment, diagnostic markers, and successful therapeutic interventions. This very timely topic will be presented by Mari Swingle, PhD whose lecture will draw from her original research and clinical experience related to the developmental and physiological effects of gaming and other I-technology addictions.

Dr. Swingle is a practicing therapist, clinical researcher, public speaker, and the author of I-Minds: How Cell Phones, Computers, Gaming and Social Media are Changing Our Brains, Our Behavior, and the Evolution of Our Species, and I-Minds 2.0: How and Why Constant Connectivity is Rewiring Our brains and What to Do About It. She is a winner of a 2015 Federation of Associations in Brain and Behavioral Sciences Foundation (FABBS) Early Career Impact Award ‘for her major research contributions to the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior and for increasing awareness of research through media and public outreach. She holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in Psychology, M.A. in Education, and B.A. in Visual Arts and maintains a clinical practice in Vancouver, Canada. In her research Dr. Swingle examines how we have embraced and assimilated technologies into all aspects of our lives without fully understanding their effects on our culture and our persons. She explores screen-based technology’s effects on the EEG and other physiological processes, and its impact on attention, creativity and innovative process, personality alteration, mental and physical health, and development.

Workshop Description

In this in-depth workshop Dr. Mari Swingle will present her ground-breaking research mapping the effects of excessive or otherwise inappropriate usage of technologies on the adult brain and the developing person. Participants will look at universal alterations in biological priming and the rewiring or hijacking of biological systems, as well as specifics in the socio-emotional and cognitive development of infants, children, adolescents, youth, and adults. She will also discuss individual liabilities and epigenetic vulnerabilities that are person specific. Cases will be presented, and diagnostic flags and treatment protocols reviewed. Participants are encouraged to bring client data (preferably Clinical Q) for review and exploration by the group. Dr. Swingle will also explore attitudinal hurdles and environmental/cultural obstacles that must be crossed to ensure successful treatment outcomes.

Learning objectives for the workshop can found on this page.

The meeting takes place on October 12 - 13, 2019 at The Florida Hotel & Conference Center in Orlando. The hotel is offering as special discounted room rate for BSF workshop participants of $125/night (plus taxes and fees) for registrations made by September 21, 2019.
