Book: BIOFEEDBACK - A PRACTITIONER'S GUIDE
Schwartz & Assoc - The
definitive text in the field, this comprehensive volume provides
state-of-the-science coverage of biofeedback research, applications,
clinical procedures, and biomedical instrumentation. With contributions from
leading experts, the volume offers a unique combination of practical
know-how and scholarly expertise. A wealth of information is presented in an
accessible, streamlined style, including helpful glossaries throughout.
Featured are detailed protocols for helping patients cultivate lower
physiological arousal and for addressing an array of specific clinical
problems: headaches, temporomandibular disorders, Raynaud's disease,
essential hypertension, neuromuscular problems, elimination disorders, and
Book: BIOFEEDBACK: AN INFORMATION KIT, AAPB
A collection of
factual information on biofeedback for interested consumers and third-party
Book: THE NEUROFEEDBACK BOOK
Michael and Lynda Thompson - This
book is written to assist you in understanding the basis of neurofeedback
and the fundamentals of how to do EEG biofeedback. Note from the outset that
we do not yet know the precise mechanisms by which EEG biofeedback works.
Ours is an empirical field based on observed outcomes.
Book: INTRODUCTION TO QUANTITATIVE EEG AND NEUROFEEDBACK
Evans & Andrew Abarbanel ed. - An ideal tool for practicing clinicians and
clinical psychologists in independent practice and hospital settings, this
book provides an introduction to neurofeedback/neurotherapy
Software: BIOFEEDBACK TUTOR Biofeedback Tutor is a Windows CD-ROM that provides an up-to-date and comprehensive review of biofeedback for BCIA certification preparation and professional education on your desktop. This product contains 18 professionally-written and illustrated tutorials, reinforced by 28 video segments and animations, and covers over 625 learning objectives from the latest BCIA Blueprint. All you need to study these tutorials is a CD-ROM drive and the Internet Explorer web browser. An internet connection will allow you to test yourself over each tutorial's content. Biofeedback Tutor runs on all Windows operating systems.
The 18 tutorials include Biofeedback History, Concepts, Psychophysiology, Electricity, Relaxation Training, Skeletal Muscle System, Cardiovascular System, Electrodermal System, Respiratory System, Central Nervous System, EMG Hardware, Cardiovascular Hardware, Electrodermal Hardware, EEG Hardware, Musculoskeletal Applications, Neuromuscular Applications, Cardiovascular Applications, and Neurofeedback Applications. They provide an extensive review of current biofeedback research findings, clinical applications, and professional issues. Special attention is focused on cutting-edge topics like chronic pain and neural plasticity, constraint-induced therapy, control of artifact, ethics, heart rate variability (HRV), neurofeedback, QEEG, and the impact of medication on biofeedback measurements.
These tutorials are
written in clear, authoritative language and explain difficult concepts with
ease. Each tutorial starts with an opening vignette and then lists the major
learning objectives that will be covered. The 18 tutorials summarize key
findings from the BCIA reading list, major academic references like Tortora
and Grabowski's (2003) Principles of anatomy and physiology, landmark
biofeedback references like Moss, McGrady, Davies, and Wickram's (2003)
Handbook of mind-body medicine for primary care and Schwartz and Andrasik's
(2003) Biofeedback (3rd edition), and critical AAPB documents like Yuha and
Gilbert's (2004) Evidence based practice in biofeedback and neurofeedback
and Striefel's (2004) Practice guidelines and standards for providers of
biofeedback and applied psychophysiological services. The video segments
demonstrate anatomical movements and dynamic biofeedback signals, while the
animations illustrate concepts like muscle contraction, electron movement
through a conductor, and volume conduction of the EMG signal. Each tutorial
ends with applications questions, a list of major references, and a
multiple-choice test over its content.
