Did you know.... More Veterans die of chronic health conditions than on the battledfield? Across the nation, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is inviting the use of biofeedback as a modality to improve chronic disease management and to increase patient self-efficacy. The Greater Los Angeles VA welcomed VHA healthcare specialists across California to a didactic training built on the BCIA 48-hour blueprint. The GLA VA is also the first VA to use biofeedback in group settings, now offering 2 biofeedback groups. Recently, the GLA VA Health Psychologist - Dr. Lamees Khorshid, BCB, BCN - was invited to speak about biofeedback at the National Pain and Polytrauma Conference in Long Beach. It’s exciting to see biofeedback as a treatment option for our military heroes.

Squabbling with your spouse lately? Someday, couples therapy could mean watching your own brain activity to train your compassionate side...Too many heated arguments rely on the cliché “I’m not a mind reader” to excuse one individual’s ignorance of another’s mental states. But now scientists based at the D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR) and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro believe they can amplify affection by letting individuals read their own minds.
