Ideal for beginners or individuals looking to enter the field of biofeedback, this 6-hour class introduces the concepts of measuring psychophysiological indicators for stress profiles. Participants are guided on how to make sense of data monitoring and displaying biological signals of interest for stress assessments and stress profiles, as well as "rule of thumb" numbers to expect in terms of increased and decreased stress.
Each lesson will cover a different signal modality in terms of:
The biofeedback signals covered are peripheral temperature, respiration, skin conductance, muscle tension, heart rate (blood volume pulse - BVP - and electrocardiogram - EKG) and heart rate variability (HRV).
- underlying physiology
- accurately recording the signal
- expected norms
- basics of self-regulation
- limitations of monitoring
- correct methods for sensor/electrode application
- discrimination of artifacts from real data
