Description

Clients with PTSD, anxiety, depression or chronic pain often struggle with distress-tolerance and poor emotional regulation. These clients are often unable to cope with navigating through difficult treatment because they can’t access thoughts and feelings beyond the immediate moment.

Week after week, this leaves you feeling like you’re having the same session repeatedly with no improvements. You’ve become frustrated and are not sure what to do next.

Transform your clinical outcomes by integrating Mindfulness-Based Biofeedback into your practice!

Mindfulness-Based Biofeedback can complement any treatment approach and has been demonstrated to improve numerous physical and emotional health symptoms including those associated with chronic pain, anxiety, stress and depression.

In biofeedback treatment, individuals learn about their emotional state by taking biological measurements, such as temperature or respiration rate, and use that information to choose mindfulness and compassion techniques to target and change symptoms of high stress or dysregulation.

You’ll be able to teach these skills to your clients so that they can become aware of their bodies and “see” their mood states, emotions and stress levels – with little to no financial investment required.

Watch Dr. Urszula Klich, PhD, BCB, and discover the exponential benefits of combining two rigorously studied scientific methodologies into a modality that is useful for clinical practice and overall health and wellbeing. Dr. Klich will walk you step-by-step through the process of using biofeedback and mindfulness together with the goal of helping your clients develop stress-reduction and self-regulation skills.

You’ll learn how to utilize affordable, easy-to-use, portable biofeedback modalities in session and how to teach your clients to use them at home.

Watch this hands-on, experiential recording, and you’ll leave with valuable skills and tools that you can apply immediately to transform your practice.
