BCIA BF/HRV Mentoring Webinar - Clinical Applications of Biofeedback in Exposure Therapy

Friday, October 21, 2022 - Presented by: Nate Ewigman, PhD, MPH, BCB

Exposure therapy is a gold-standard treatment for anxiety and related disorders that is typically incorporated into psychotherapeutic treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or provided as a stand-alone treatment. While highly effective for those who complete treatment (drop-out rates for exposure therapy can be up to 30%), adapting exposure therapy to reflect emerging scientific evidence may enhance outcomes. Exposure therapies are inherently psychophysiological: 1) they rely upon the intentional, structured activation of psychophysiological anxiety to allow for new, therapeutic learning to occur, 2) maladaptive autonomic psychophysiology predicts poor outcomes as well as drop-out in regards to exposure therapy, 3) improving adaptive autonomic psychophysiology may improve readiness for treatment & 4) incorporating autonomic psychophysiological measurement into exposure therapy sessions may enhance patient engagement and insight as well as therapist conceptualization. However, biofeedback is not commonly incorporated into exposure therapy. This webinar will present current theory and evidence around exposure therapy, make the case for biofeedback as a synergistic complement to exposure therapy & present practical suggestions about how to blend these evidence-based treatments.
