We are pleased to invite you to the 17th Annual Meeting of the Biofeedback Federation of Europe (BFE) to be held in Venice, Italy from February 11-15, 2014. The meeting will take place at the Instituto Universitario Salesiano Venezia (IUSVE). We invite students to take advantage of our new Student Scholarship Program.
The BFE annual meeting is an interdisciplinary biofeedback conference to nurture communication and education between specialists from different disciplines. Experts from neurofeedback, biofeedback, psychology, medicine, physical therapy, education and other disciplines come together to share and learn. They recognize that specific physiological signals are always part of the whole. The dynamic physiological changes that are observed during biofeedback monitoring and training confirms Elmer and Alice Green's psychophysiological principal (Green et al., 1970):
"Every change in the physiological state is accompanied by an appropriate change in the mental emotional state, conscious or unconscious, and conversely, every change in the mental emotional state, conscious or unconscious, is accompanied by an appropriate change in the physiological state."
Biofeedback confirms that a person is a system in which every part is affected by every other part. In a broader perspective, biofeedback training is not separate from diet, exercise and social factors. These all interact together.
The upcoming 2014 BFE meeting in Venice, Italy is a forum that offers a broad range of basic and applied psychophysiology and biofeedback workshops and presentations. These presentations and exchanges allow the undocumented be documented, the unseen be seen, the unfelt be felt and the dysfunctional be functional.
We hope you will attend and participate in the meeting.The program committee is now accepting submissions for workshops, symposia, oral papers presentations and abstracts.
We look forward to seeing you at the Venice 2014 meeting.
