The Biofeedback Foundation of Europe (BFE) attracted 200 clinicians from Europe and North America to its 11th Annual Meeting in Berlin at the University of Applied Sciences, Feb. 27 through March 3.

During the meeting’s scientific program, Dr Vietta “Sue” Wilson, Toronto, Canada, lectured on the use of biofeedback and neurofeedback in sports psychology. Dr Bruno Demichelis also made a presentation about how the professional Italian soccer team, AC Milan, has used the Mind Room (Thought Technology, Montreal, Canada) and sports psychology/sports medicine.

The scientific program featured other lectures and symposia that included workshops by Lynda Thompson, PhD, and Michael Thompson, MD, authors, educators and founders of the Toronto ADD Centre (

Dr Erik Peper, PhD, co-director of the Institute for Holistic Healing Studies, Department of Health Education at San Francisco State University, taught an ergonomics workshop at the meeting. Peper’s book “Muscle Biofeedback at the Computer,” addresses prevention of repetitive strain injury.

The BFE’s 2008 meeting is scheduled for Feb. 19-23 in Salzburg, Austria.

A two-day workshop sponsored by the BFE has been announced for July 9-10 in Montreal, Canada that will feature Wilson teaching a workshop titled “Optimizing Performance and Health.” The event will also have a French-language workshop with content similar to Wilson’s titled, “My Stress, Your Stress: Impact of Predisposition, Age, and Learning on Stress Management.” The French-language workshop will be presented by Dr Nicolina Pavlov and Dr Ray Pavlov.
