AAPB Independent Study Program

Introduction to Biofeedback
An AAPB Independent Study Program

BCIA-approved Didactic Independent Study Certification Modules


AAPB is pleased to offer Introduction to Biofeedback, an Independent Study Program. Edited by Andrew Crider, PhD, and Doil Montgomery, PhD, this program is part of the constellation of services offered to our members and the public. It is designed to be a self-paced, in-depth educational experience for those interested in pursuing their certification through the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA), or those pursuing continuing education in biofeedback and its applications, either for recertification or to maintain a health care license. There is no specific prerequisite for participation in the program.

You may earn all 48 hours in the comfort of your home or office or you may pick individual modules to suite your educational needs, saving on travel time and the expenses involved in workshop attendance. You have all of the material in front of you to read and re-read at your leisure. All of the necessary information is presented in step-by-step stages.

Just as there are eight areas covered by the BCIA general biofeedback blueprint, there are eight corresponding modules in the independent study series. Order one, two, or all of the modules as you wish. This allows you to control the cost and pace of learning. There is no more cost-effective way to earn the 48 didactic hours required by BCIA for certification or just to learn about biofeedback. For complete information on certification requirements, you should visit BCIA’s website at www.bcia.org.

In addition to BCIA, the program is designed for professional continuing education on the basis of your own choice of modules. This comprehensive independent study program offers APA approved credit for psychologists. Read on to discover more about the AAPB Independent Study program.
