Today we welcomed Dr Jack Ginsberg PhD to The Unveil Podcast for an in-depth discussion into his primary areas of research: heart rate variability and heart rate variability feedback.
Dr. Ginsberg earned a B.S. in Biology cum laude from Yale University, an M.A. in Anthropology from Brandeis University and in Psychology from Boston College, and a PhD in Clinical Neuropsychology from the University of Memphis (TN). Presently he is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist/Neuropsychologist in South Carolina after retiring from the Columbia (SC) VA hospital in 2019. He is currently adjunct faculty at Saybrook University (departments of Applied Psychophysiology, Clinical Psychology, and Research) and Research Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine.
Dr. Ginsberg has been a PI, Co-PI or Co-I on research grants from the DoD, VA, and NIH studying heart rate variability (HRV) and HRV biofeedback in patients with either chronic pain or PTSD. Currently he is collaborating with researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, and University of South Carolina School of Medicine on grant proposals under review by NIH and DoD to study heart rate variability and heart rate variability biofeedback.
Dr. Ginsberg has advocated for integrative management of chronic pain and PTSD using Autonomic Self-Regulation as a self-empowering mind-body treatment for the past 15 or more years. He authored or co-authored more than 70 peer-reviewed scientific publications, chapters, and abstracts; served as a scientist reviewer of research grant proposals for NIH, VA, and DoD; and edited or reviewed numerous published scientific articles. In addition, Dr. Ginsberg has given invited presentations on HRV and HRVB at scientific meetings, academic seminars, and webinars. He was program Co-Chair of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) Special 50th Anniversary Annual Scientific meeting in Denver, CO. His most recent service activities are Board Member of the Heart Rate Variability Institute and Chair, American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Task Force on Biofeedback in Rehabilitation Medicine.
