Biofeedback shows how the body reacts to different situations in daily life, such as stress, fear or joy by changing the heart rate, breathing, muscle tension, finger temperature, skin conductance. It enhances self-perception and promotes a deep understanding of one’s own reactions and patterns of action. Children have a very good access to this method and learn quickly. For the first time in this book, the possible applications from the daily practice of multimodal biofeedback and neurofeedback for the needs of children are discussed, such as stress management in kindergarten, school, trauma treatment, psychosomatic medicine, ADHD and ADD. The therapy concept ASTI® – for multimodal biofeedback is presented and explained step by step. Numerous exercise stories successfully round off the book. A practice book for therapists, trainers, doctors, teachers and parents.
