From the Back Cover:

This practical handbook guides clinicians step by step through the processes of applying biofeedback in a clinical setting, providing proven and effective methodologies for those new to the technique as well as offering established practitioners a means of enriching their work and improving patient outcomes. Integrating powerful mindfulness approaches into biofeedback practice, the book’s clearly defined sections cover core aspects of the peripheral biofeedback method, now widely recognized as one of the most scientifically robust applications of psychophysiology and behavior therapy.

Beginning with a clear and authoritative introduction to mindfulness and acceptance, the author describes proven and effective ways of integrating these approaches with biofeedback, as well as dealing with general aspects such as instrumentation. She moves on to protocols on assessment, providing step-by-step instructions and guidelines on interpretation. Next is detailed coverage of five peripheral biofeedback modalities including heart rate variability, surface electromyography, and temperature. Finally, a section on psychophysiological disorders brings the material and approach together across a range of conditions for which biofeedback has been shown to work as an efficacious treatment option, including sample scripts for use with patients.
