The ACT of Biofeedback: Flexibility
Presenter: Yossi Ehrenreich, MA
Date: 25 September 2019
Time: 11:00 am (Eastern Time US & Canada; 17:00 in Italy, Germany)


The ACT of Biofeedback - smallAcceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is based upon the new behavioral science (RFT) and the contemplative practices: Mindfulness, Acceptance, and Compassion. ACT is designed to achieve health improvement through accomplishing psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility is a comprehensive concept which comprises self-regulation and apparently related to cardiac vagal control. ACT matrix model of coaching and treatment has been formulated by Kevin Polk (2011, 2014). The model consists of 6 training steps. Each step introduces basic ACT concept in plain language. Concepts such as self as context, Me as context, Observing Me, Acceptance, cognitive diffusion have pragmatic meaning and are interpreted to committed actions. Interweaved with Biofeedback it creates an experiential framework of therapy and coaching. The webinar will introduce a systematic way of integrating BF and ACT based on the ACT matrix training protocol. Examples will be given from various fields such as anger and financial management to show the effectiveness of the model.
