The Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia proudly hosts
Trauma to Triumph: Evidence-based interventions & neurotechnologies for recovery and performance
19th & 20th November 2016, SMC Conference & Function Centre, Sydney, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA
Come and celebrate the 10th annual conference of the Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia (ANSA) since its establishment in 2006 by the amalgamation of the Australian Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAAPB) and the Pacific Rim Chapter of the International Society for Neuronal Regulation (iSNR).
Trauma to Triumph: To open the heart after tragedy; to yearn to learn after many failures; to commit to excel in what we love; these all share one essential quality, being that what is honoured most in ourselves – our determination to be our best. To make the most of what we have and to rise above our frailties - this is the very stuff of heroes!
Neurofeedback offers a way forward to raise our capabilities across the spectrum of our endeavours. It is fitting that this conference focuses on both how we can train to overcome trauma and train to reach for our finest. Paralympians and Olympians share the same striving. The hurt and the blessed share dreams.
Whether you are a clinician, teacher, coach or team leader this conference will inspire you to see the hero within all. And how to bring to bear modern tools to help make the best of what we have.
I look forward to being with you in November.

While most participants will be drawn from the clinical health sector, approximately 25% of delegates will represent government departments, companies, and advocacy groups, research and practice in applied neuroscience. Academics, practitioners and post-graduate students will contribute to the conference program. Our keynote speakers are global experts in their fields and include Bessel van der Kolk and Sebern Fisher.The ANSA Annual Conference aims to:
1. promote the scientific study and professional practice of Applied Neuroscience through methods including biofeedback, neurotherapy, applied psychophysiology and nutrition.
2. offer training and further education for health professionals in the application of biofeedback, neurotherapy, applied psychophysiology, nutrition and other self-regulatory therapeutic tools.
3. encourage research and expansion of clinical and educational applications of applied neurosciences.
