DescriptionA process for developing and implementing Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Biofeedback (BFB) in a collegiate sport setting is presented in this dissertation. The objective of this manual is to detail methods used in a pilot project study conducted at Rutgers University (RU) with five male and female golfers. The protocol delineates the scope of preparation activities, strategies and guidelines for training, and a seven-session protocol for conducting HRV BFB with athletes. In addition, this manual was edited and formalized following completion of the study to incorporate knowledge gained during the conduct of HRV BFB with RU golfers. Methodological considerations for future research evaluating the utility of HRV BFB for athletes are proposed.
