CBT-BF™ METHOD - INTRODUCTION TO BVA FOR STRESS MANAGEMENT WEBINAR RECORDING
Presenter: Dr. Yuval Oded
Achieving effective results in stress management training depends, among other things, on the clients`ability to feel safe and let go. Working with PTSD clients and training stress management and peak performance in military settings led me to explore other, less widely used, physiological modalities, in order to monitor and improve self- regulation skills. The CBT-BF™ method was developed in the past 20 years and it draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness and biofeedback to create an effective training method. One of the most important elements in this method is the use of BVA. This webinar focuses on the integration of BVA in stress management training and in inter- personal
All views expressed in the recording are solely those of the presenters and participants.
At the end of this webinar, the learner will be able to:
1) Describe the physiological basis of BVA;
2) Identify how it compares to other more widely used biofeedback modalities;
3) Demonstrate how to integrate BVA biofeedback in stress management training;
4) Discuss clinical and research findings.
