HRV TRAINING ONLINE CLASS
CE Credit for psychologists is granted on a one credit per one contact
CONTENT: This 6-hour class presented by Linda Walker, MHR, LPC, BCN, BCB introduced licensed professionals to the measurement of heart
rate variability (HRV) from an EKG signal or from peripheral blood
flow (HR/BVP). The 4 x 1.5 hour lesson demonstrated a variety of
convergent training strategies to produce increased heart rate
- Lesson 1 - Definition of HRV, review of the autonomic nervous system, foundational discussion of Porges' Polyvagal and Neurovisceral theories, basic examination of the HRV measurements.
- Lesson 2 - Review of material from the first lesson, understanding the biofeedback signal relative to HRV (including spectral frequencies), how stress effects HRV, examining results of stress tests.
- Lesson 3 - Simple tool for at-home HRV training, example of resonant frequency breathing evaluation, review & analysis of a resonant frequency evaluation, including how to respond to artifacts.
- Lesson 4 - Review of participant resonant frequency breathing evaluation, example of HRV training session, based on differing HRV measurements
