Teaching Relaxation Skills for Health and Human Performance
This workshop will enhance the knowledge base and improve skills of health educators wishing to teach relaxation skills in their classrooms. Research on the effectiveness of various forms of relaxation training for health and performance will be explored. Participants will receive suggestions on which techniques are recommended under different circumstances and how they can best teach techniques. Attention will also be given to possible contraindications of relaxation training and resources for classroom instruction. The majority of this workshop will focus on the successful implementation of psychosomatic (Meditation, Visual Imagery, Self Hypnosis, etc.) and somatopsychic (Progressive Relaxation, Biofeedback, etc.) relaxation techniques.
