Anger management, not just in the sports world, is a catch-phrase used to describe a place for athletes who behave poorly.

Further, by teaching athletes how to modulate their levels of emotion, violent transgresions may be minimized on and off the field.

Penny Werthner, Ph.D., University of Calgary Tim Herzog, Ed.D., CC-AASP, Human Performance Resource Center & Sommer Christie, MA, University of Calgary

Biofeedback training has been shown to reduce anxiety, improve attention, and enhance performance in the competitive environment (Galloway, 2011; Gevirtz, 2007). However, biofeedback equipment-based interventions can be time consuming and expensive to incorporate into psychological skills training. This workshop will focus on providing the sport psychology practitioner with evidence-based tools and intervention strategies using the principles of biofeedback. The workshop will briefly identify the relationships between theory, research, and practice. The emphasis will be on workshop activities, which will include hands-on practice with biofeedback equipment, with a strong emphasis on accessible tools such as smart phone applications.

This course is worth 3 hours of CE credit.
Workshop is subject to cancellation should less than 10 registrants be enrolled 30 days prior to session date.
