Overview

Many practitioners use biofeedback (BFB) and neurofeedback (NFB) to help individuals bring their personal goals of optimizing performance in domains such as music, dance, sports, and exercise within reach.

Written by veterans in the field, Case Studies in Applied Psychophysiology is the first text to present case-studies from practitioners utilizing these techniques.  Each case study has been systematically recorded and presents readers with a comprehensive overview of each approach. The case studies demonstrate not only the variety of approaches available to practitioners, but also the unique tailoring of techniques and procedures that seasoned practitioners implement to help clients achieve their goals. The primary focus is on individuals from non-clinical (i.e. not medically related) populations, but two case studies describe neurofeedback interventions with individuals suffering from traumatic brain injuries.

Case Studies in Applied Psychophysiology is a useful introduction to the field, as well as a road map for those looking to incorporate these techniques into their own psychology, sports medicine, physiology, performance psychology, and counseling practices.
