About Mike Rothburd, PhD

Michael Rothburd, PhD was a founding member of BSF and served as the first president of the fledgling organization. Mike remained active in the Society for almost four decades. In addition to being a gifted and compas-
sionate clinician, Mike was knowledgeable about the technical aspects of the emerging field of biofeedback and acted as the de facto technical advisor for the Society. Mike had a wry sense of humor and could always be trusted to bring some levity to our meetings. Mike passed away in December, 2018 and the Society has developed an award to honor his spirit and innumerable contributions to the BSF.


Thanks to Mari Swingle, Ph.D. and all who contributed
to the success of the BSF October 2019 meeting



BSF expresses its appreciation to Mari Swingle, Ph.D. for her fascinating presentation, "Excessive and Non-complementary Screen Use; Effects on Health, Wellness, and Development: EEG assessment, diagnostic markers, and successful therapeutic interventions " at the BSF October 2019 CE meeting. The workshop was held at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando.

We are also grateful for the support of Bio Medical Instruments, the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA), and all who attended and contributed to the lively sharing of ideas and warm collegiality. We look forward to seeing you October 2020 for our next CE program.



Topic: Pediatric headache, chronic pain, and sleep disorders
Plans are in the works for BSF's next CE program!

BSF is committed to the safety and health of its members and friends during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our need to be close in spirit but distant physically has interrupted our CE workshop schedule, but not our planning. We are currently in discussions with AAPB President and Cleveland Clinic pediatric psychologist, Ethan Benore, Ph.D. to present to us on "Non-pharmacological treatments for pediatric headache, chronic pain, and sleep disorders"

We are hoping to hold the meeting sometime in the fall of 2020 at our usual venue, the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando. This, of course will depend on what the science tells us about the advisability of doing so.

Watch this space and your email for updates on our workshop planning. And please stay safe!
