Members of the Biofeedback Foundation of Europe recently held an 'Optimizing Performance and Health' workshop which shared the latest developments in using Biofeedback and Neurofeedback in sport. Dr. Vietta "Sue" Wilson conducted the workshop at the University of Quebec's downtown Montreal campus. Dr. Louis Csoka, the founder of West Point Military Academy's Sports Psychology program, attended as did Dr. Wes Sime a Sport Psychologist specializing in PGA Golf. Dr. Len Zaichkowsky of Boston University, Dr. Mark S. Schwartz, author of the landmark book "Biofeedback", and Andre Fournier, Chief of the Coaching Association of Canada were also in attendance. A total of eighteen English speaking Sports Psychologists participated. Conducting a workshop in French were Dr. Nicolina and Ray Pavlov with 10 Sports Psychologists attending.
