March AAUPW Events

Program Meeting
Wednesday, March 15th at 6:30 PM

Our speaker this month will be now be our intrepid member Ruth Kreider who has stepped up and said she would speak about her work in Neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is one type of biofeedback in which brainwaves (EEG waves) are analyzed. "Neurofeedback therapy is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. The brain's electrical activity is observed in action and that information is fed back to the person. By means of visual-acoustic feedback, the individual can change abnormal brainwave activity to more optimal patterns and thus gain an improvement to mental and physical symptoms/functions.

After a brief overview of Neurofeedback, I will do a live demonstration showing how this process works. Questions that will be addressed include:

What is EEG Neurofeedback?
How does it Work?
What Conditions Can it Help?
Who Provides this Therapy in and Around Munich?"

Volunteer become an AAUPW Board Member 
We will be holding AAUPW Board elections during our May program meeting! Some of you have already volunteered to take on positions for the coming year, but we still have a few spots open. Several members have held positions for several years and would be willing to step aside or shift if someone else would like to volunteer. New people mean new ideas, larger resources, and greater energy. We especially need volunteers for the program committee!

I can say from my own experience, being on the Board is a great way to get to know other members and participate in deciding who we are and what we want to accomplish. It is exciting to figure out what kinds of things are available to us because we are a group of interested (and interesting!) women. Over the past 2 years, I have learned and had exposure to topics through our group that simply would not have been available to me as an individual. And it is always exciting and fun to be part of the decision making arm of the group.

A short description of positions and their duties will be sent per email. You may nominate a fellow AAUPW member for a particular position, or volunteer for one of the board positions yourself.

The board meets every 3 months to discuss various items and the future of the club. Board members should be prepared to give approximately 2 hours of their time per month to the club.
