Our Trip to India: A Look Back

November 14th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

Our Trip to India: A Look Back
G oing to India had not been on our bucket list when this opportunity arose, but the potential significance of our undertaking became clear to us rather quickly. And now, as we look back, we see the realistic possibility of our hopes being realized. It has been amazing to observe the ongoing mental gymnastics of Western-educated academic minds in order to reject the implications of self-regulation based therapies. This has been so for the entire twentieth century, and it continues even now. The proposition goes against the grain of their intellectual upbringing. Practicing professionals may even see this development as a threat to their livelihood.

Our Trip to India: The Journey Home (Day 19)

November 13th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

Sue and I have just returned from a sojourn to India, where we taught our training course at the Tibetan Medical Institute, Men-Tsee-Khang.
Day 19

October 4 (Saturday)

At breakfast at the Hilton Barbara ordered a couple of scrambled eggs—“but not too runny.” The waitress showed up with two plates of scrambled eggs and two orders of sausages that went with them, and placed them all before Barbara. Really? It would have taken Shaq himself to down all those sausages at one sitting.

Biofeedback Society of California Conference 2014 – The ‘Common Core’ of Biofeedback and Neurofeedback

November 12th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

BSC Conference 2014
M y own theme at the conference was the common core of biofeedback and neurofeedback. This has actually been a recurring theme. This was a topic that I had covered back in 2006 at this same conference, which was also held in Northern California. At that time the talk was part of a multi-ring circus, and the only folks in attendance were neurofeedback people. The attempt to heal the breach between the two disciplines had not found its audience. By now, of course, the terrain is very different, at least at the conceptual level, if not at the level of practice. Most of the older biofeedback practitioners are sticking with their knitting, as far as I can tell. Change is being introduced with the new people entering the field, most of whom are no doubt being attracted by the greater glamour, and the bracing challenge, of brain training.

Biofeedback Society of California Conference 2014 – George Fuller: Wearables and Apps

November 12th, 2014

 

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

BSC Conference 2014
G eorge Fuller von Bozzay spoke about new developments in the area of wearables, apps, and other consumer-oriented devices. As it happens, he has himself been involved in one of these developments in the past. One of his neighbors is (or was) Ryan Gordon of Atari fame, and at a time when he was looking for projects he became intrigued with George Fuller’s idea for the development of video feedback for a GSR signal. Gordon insisted, however, that it be in the form of a game, and thus emerged the first such product, “Mind Drive.”

Veteran’s Day 2014

November 11th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

Veterans Day
W hy is it that our nation has not made more progress in dealing with PTSD and TBI over all these years? Admittedly, the whole concept of PTSD only dates back to about 1980, which is rather astounding. But matters are even worse with regard to TBI. We’ve been living with automobile-involved head injuries in huge numbers for nearly a century; there are in addition the common occurrences of minor head injuries among children; and at the other end of the age range we confront all those falls among the elderly leading to minor traumatic brain injury. And yet there has been no real coming to grips with this problem until we confronted the conundrum of blast injury—injury without apparent direct impact on the brain—among our service members. One could well say that the field of medicine essentially ignored what is called ‘minor’ traumatic brain injury until the 21st century.

Report on the Annual Conference of the Biofeedback Society of California

November 11th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

BSC Conference 2014
T he 40th Anniversary Celebration of the Biofeedback Society of California was an upbeat and rollicking affair. It got underway with a look back at the work of the Menninger group and the Life Sciences Institute by Patricia Norris. Ostensibly the key research objective there had been to study the dimensions of human consciousness, but in fact there was considerable engagement with the use of biofeedback for therapeutic purposes as well. The work with prisoners extended over nine years, and it reached a number of prisons. Support for this work was withdrawn at a time when the State of Kansas was facing a budgetary crisis that caused the cancellation of nearly all rehabilitation programs in the prisons, with the exception of some attention to violent sexual offenders.
