He is an author of many scientific articles and books includ- ing Healthy Computing with Muscle Biofeedback, De Computermens, and Make Health Happen Training: Yourself to Create Wellness. Biography: Rick Harvey is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Education and Institute of Holistic Health Studies. His research includes developing measures of personal courage, strengths and virtues needed for stress and harm reduc- tion as well as improving health and literacy among individuals and immigrant groups. Prior to SFSU, he directed the Biofeedback and Stress Management Program at the UC Irvine Counseling Center and, worked as an Epidemiologist for the Orange County Health Care Agency. He has been a board member and past president of the Western Association for Biofeedback and Neuroscience (WABN, formerly Robert Grove, Ph.D. Neuroscience, Movement-derived EMG Biofeedback and Self Regulation: Tributes to Jeff Cram, Bernie Brucker and Jennifer Stephens Course Level: Introductory Saturday, Nov. 5th , 1 hour This talk features advances by three pioneers in assessing and training physiolog- ical self-regulation disorders, clearly going well beyond the relaxation mode by using movements with muscle feedback information. They discovered that people could learn to change underlying neuromuscular disorders when practitioners took the time and effort to do a simple movement profile, explain the results logically to a client, and set achievable goals to gradually reverse the problem. Neuroscience i s now con- firming the mechanisms underlying the effectiveness of these protocols, taking a deeper l o o k at neuroplasticity expressed in the somatic and autonomic nervous systems. Biography: A pioneer in biofeedback, Dr. Gove received his PhD from Minnesota with a post-doc at the Pritzer School of Medicine, where he was part of a team that trained cats to voluntarily shift gastric waves using biofeedback operant procedures. He started a groundbreaking Behavioral Medicine Program at Laval University, and then moved to UCLA/Sepulveda VA in the Clinical Psychophysiology Laboratory. He developed a variety of electronic devices targeting various disorders. After a two year sabbatical i n Italy, he returned to California, partnering with the biofeedback equip- ment company, J&J Enterprises. He has worked in numerous hospital and private pain rehab clinics, and remains active i n the field.
