The Northeast Regional Biofeedback Society will host its 2009 Spring Conference on April 25 at the Elizabeth Arden Building on Fifth Avenue and 58th Street in New York City.

Titled “Being in the Zone: Biofeedback and Neurofeedback for Artistic, Athletic and Academic Performance,” the conference will feature several workshops and keynote speakers.

The morning workshop, Tuning In To The High Achieving Cleint, will provide a model for working with artists, student athletes and business professionals. Focusing on six steps for optimal performance, the workshop will delve into the following components: the relaxation process, open focus, neurofeedback, inner journey, mental imagery and coaching.

After a midday lunch break, the conference will turn its attention to two speakers.

James Thompson, PhD, BCIA-EEG, an associate fellow of the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America, will address attendees first. Renown for his work with ADHD and Autism, Dr. Thompson has worked with the ADD Center in Toronto for eight years and is a veteran of national and international conferences.

Dr. Thompson will be followed by Kathleen Riley, PhD. Dr. Riley has incorporated biofeedback training in enhancing the transfer of learning needed to achieve high performance mastery. Dr. Riley has worked with pianists, violinists and guitarists to retrain proper muscle use and fine motor control. She conducts research in music pedagogy at New York University.

Following the noted speakers, NRBS will offer a post conference workshop titled “Performance Enhancement for the Therapist, Clinician and Educator,” where attendees will learn how to recognize their innate intuition during therapy sessions and discover resonance and its relationship to the skilled healer. The session provides hands on, practical training techniques that can be applied immediately in any helping profession.
