Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Biofeedback, 3rd Edition, is the essential guide to contemporary biofeedback treatment. It provides practical, state-of-the-art treatment protocols and also includes the references to supportive research that are required by today's evidence-based clinician. As a rehabilitation professional, I found the chapters on neuromuscular reeducation, musculoskeletal pain, and pelvic floor disorders to be both interesting and clinically relevant."--Susan J. Middaugh, PhD, PT, Department of Anesthesia & Perioperative Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC
Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback

"The new edition of Biofeedback: A Practitioner's Guide is the classic, encyclopedic text on the practice of biofeedback. The book is well organized, comprehensive, readable, and well-documented and should be on the bookshelf of every student, practitioner, researcher, and instructor in the field of applied psychophysiology."--Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback
Biofeedback and Self-Regulation

"For anyone entering the biofeedback field, seeking a comprehensive reference or update on the field, or studying for BCIA certification, this text should be consulted first....The biofeedback practitioner who consults this book may feel as if a wise and experienced biofeedback clinician were sitting in the room as a coach....It is informative and thought-provoking even for the most experienced biofeedback practitioner, yet it is accessible to the intelligent beginner." --Biofeedback and Self-Regulation
Michael McCrea
This second edition provides a thorough, comprehensive review of all facets of biofeedback. The book is innovative in its discussion on the ethics related to biofeedback as well as on the future clinical and research applications. The chapter on the use of computer-assisted biofeedback is both timely and unique. The first edition was published in 1987. The author clearly meets his objectives of providing a comprehensive, updated information source and guide for healthcare practitioners using biofeedback, researchers, and policy makers and administrators as well as providing information on reimbursement. The author intends the book for practitioners using biofeedback, researchers, and healthcare administrators directing its clinical use. The book also appears appropriate as a training text for beginning clinicians by reviewing biofeedback's history, fundamental principles, clinical utility, research application, and ethical considerations. The author is certainly a highly experienced and respected authority in the field of biofeedback, including being past president of the Biofeedback Society of America. The figures provide visual aids to help the reader conceptualize the dynamics and instrumentation of biofeedback. The references are both thorough and up-to-date, including a review of the classic and most recent biofeedback literature. This second edition should provide a timely and needed update on the clinical application, policy and ethics, and future directions of biofeedback. In doing so, it provides a comprehensive guide not only for the experienced, practicing clinician or researcher, but also a thorough text for novice practitioners being trained in biofeedback.
