Learning Objectives - at the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the difference between the models for therapy and performance enhancement
  • Demonstrate effective use of self-regulation skills targeting the body using BF/NF to enhance performance
  • Demonstrate effective use of self-regulation skills targeting the mind using BF/NF to enhance performance
  • Explain how modalities interact in optimal performance assessments
  • Describe how the differences in psychophysiological responses of elite performers inform modality guidelines
  • Describe how to set up and train routines for optimizing the mind/body
  • List the strengths and weaknesses of setting up a client home based training BF/NF program
Workshop Description

Dr. Wilson has planned this workshop to be interactive, with ample opportunity for demonstrations and discussion. The program will explore how biofeedback and neurofeedback are beneficial for for optimal performance, and different from traditional sport psychology interventions as related to goals, models, and responsibilities. Dr. Wilson will discuss how brief, deep, self-regulation skills complement biofeedback and neurofeedback methods for optimal performance. She will also demonstrate the use of protocols for assessment and training contained in the Optimizing Performance and Health software.

The workshop will provide detailed information about the Learned Self-Regulation Skill that includes training of SMR, alpha, HRV, TEMP, sEMG, and EDA for increasing focus and quieting the busy brain, autogenic and other cognitive methods, and home training. The workshop will also review some of Dr. Wilson’s signature contributions to the science of optimal health and performance including psychophysiological profiling and EEG brain mapping of elite performers and psychophysiological methods for validating skills training.
