AMERSFOORT, Netherlands, March 31, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Biofeedback Foundation of Europe is pleased to offer the rare opportunity to attend a 2-day workshop with Dr. Vietta Sue Wilson at their annual conference (http://www.bfe.org/meeting.html) April 13-17, 2010 in Rome, Italy.
Now more than ever, training for the Olympics has gone beyond a simply physical workout.

Dr. Wilson has trained many gold medal winners and their psychology trainers. In her pioneering efforts between 1980 -1995 she taught 900 Olympic coaches how to use Biofeedback in Sport, at the Coaching Association of Canada's annual Mont St. Marie Sports Conference and her work continues today.
In this workshop, Dr. Wilson will discuss the pragmatic details of working with elite and developmental athletes, how to motivate people, and practical clinical tools to achieve success! She is also scheduled to give the Invited Address for the Scientific Session Neurofeedback/Biofeedback get credit for Gold Medals: Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.
