Course 2: Breathing Habit Analysis.




The course prepares colleagues for assessing breathing behavior and habits based on the principles of behavior analysis and applied psychophysiology, including HOW TO:

● interview clients, while concurrently observing real time physiology, about their breathing habits and their possible role in health (physical and mental) and performance;

● conduct TRANSACTIONAL PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGY counseling, i.e., interacting with your client around live physiology while interviewing;

● identify dysfunctional breathing habits and their effects, behavioral components, learning histories, triggers, motivations, reinforcements, along with their role in triggering, exacerbating, and perpetuating symptoms associated with physical and behavioral disorders;

● design customized testing protocols for clients with dysfunctional breathing habits based on their unique challenges, circumstances, and learning histories;

● formulate learning plans that bring together physiology and psychology in ways that provide for practical and effective solutions for overcoming dysfunctional breathing habits;

● learn to make assessment sessions client-centered learning experiences, rather than therapist-centered diagnostic sessions, by engaging clients in a partnership interview;

● use assessment tools for case analysis including forms, data collection records, testing outcomes, and interview content; and

● operate capnography, HRV, and electromyography instrumentation as a learning tool for self-observation and self-exploration by clients.
