- A definitive desk reference for the use of peripheral biofeedback techniques in psychotherapeutic settings, backed by a wealth of clinical research
- Introduces mindfulness and acceptance techniques and shows how these methods can be incorporated into biofeedback practice
- Step-by-step instructions provide everything a clinician needs to integrate biofeedback and mindfulness including protocols, exemplar logs for tracking symptoms, and sample scripts for mindfulness exercises
- Includes scientifically robust treatment protocols for a range of common problems including headaches, hypertension and chronic pain
Dr. Khazan has done a masterful job of taking the essence of biofeedback protocols and presenting them in a clear, understandable manner. She captures most of the current practice and techniques in applied psychophysiology/biofeedback.—Professor Richard Gevirtz, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, CSPP @ Alliant International University
This masterful book belongs on the desk of every clinician and educator interested in biofeedback. It is the only book that takes biofeedback beyond learning how to attach the sensors to how to do clinical treatment/training. It offers a structured approach to optimize clinical success and is filled with pragmatic clinical instructions and pearls of wisdom which will significantly improve clients’ outcome. It is the much awaited clinical teaching manual that complements our own book, Biofeedback Mastery- An Experiential Teaching and Self-Training Manual.—Professor Erik Peper, San Francisco State University.
This book has it all! It a remarkably comprehensive, clearly-written, practical guide to all the ins and outs of biofeedback. If you were ever curious exactly what we mean by overbreathing or heart rate variability, what specifically to ask in a biofeedback evaluation, how to treat irritable bowel or migraine headache, or exactly where to place electromyography sensors, this is the sourcebook you’ve been waiting for. Dr. Khazan has done the work for us. A unique contribution is the mindfulness perspective which helps clients to release self-judgment and the struggle to control their symptoms that undermines treatment and leads to many psychophysiological disorders in the first place. I highly recommend this insightful book for students of both biofeedback and mindfulness-based therapies, and for seasoned clinicians who wish to stay at the cutting-edge of their craft.—Professor Christopher Germer, PhD, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Medical School
