Mind-Body Medicine in Our Lives: Char Conlin Uses her Mind-Body Skills at Motor-Vehicle Accident Scene02/25/2014
One of the many strengths of the Saybrook University School of Mind-Body Medicine is applying what we learn academically to our professional and personal lives. As a community -- including students, faculty, staff and our loved ones -- we continue to experience the full spectrum of life, from birth to death and all of the joys and sorrows in between, as we pursue our individual dreams. As a group we have the capacity to learn from one another and also to connect, share, and possibly collaborate.
Dr. Stephen Porges, Expert on Heart Rate Variability, Provides Address in Venice, Italy on Evolutionary and Physiological Foundations of Social Engagement02/21/2014
School of MBM Chair Donald Moss attended the Biofeedback Federation of Europe annual meeting February 10-15 in Venice, Italy. Here he reports on a keynote address by Dr. Stephen W. Porges in the BFE scientific meeting.
Stephen Porges is a leader in the scientific study of psychophysiology, especially of “heart rate variability” and the role of the vagal nervous system. His model is based in his innovative understanding of the evolution of the mammalian nervous system. Porges has also contributed to the practical applications of psychophysiology to treatment, including the treatment of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
