MONTREAL, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the World's Leading Sport Psychologists that trained Canada's top Olympic athletes will be teaching a workshop in Montreal on June 26th & 27th. Clinicians, psychologists, students and educators will learn about new software & specialized equipment using biofeedback & neurofeedback. This instrumentation is the same as those used in the MindRoom of AC Milan, the reigning Champions League team. It has also been used, for some time, by the Dutch Special Forces to screen and train SWAT Team recruits.

Montreal Workshops June 26th & 27th

The seminar will take place at the University of Quebec at the downtown Montreal Campus. The first workshop will be led by the internationally-recognized sports psychologist and York University professor, Dr. Vietta (Sue) Wilson. http://www.bfe.org/workshop.html#PEAK
