2018-06 Webinar Recording: CU-Sport Psych Meets Biofeedback: Tim Herzog, EdD, B

Description: Presented by Tim Herzog, EdD, BCB. Old school sport psychology emphasizes ideas consistent with traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Control or suppress negative cognitive processes and everything will fall into place, emotionally, physiologically, and in terms of behavior/performance. Recently, sport psychology has finally been catching up with third wave CBTs (e.g., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy), de-emphasizing control, and placing emphasis on the value of mindfulness and acceptance. Practitioners of biofeedback have long been aware that: 1) attempts at controlling ones psychophysiology can paradoxically result in less control; and 2) one does not have to accept complete powerlessness with ones physiology. Developing self-efficacy with self-regulation skills, the ability to influence ones physiological stress responses, can lead to more optimal states of recovery and performance. Biofeedback, used in tandem with adapted old school sport psychology approaches, can boost capacity for influencing ones psychophysiology and performing ones best, for athletes, other kinds of performers, or anyone else aiming for more optimal functioning. This program will present practical ideas and case examples, specifically with heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback, that practitioners can integrate into their practice.
