We will briefly review the core foundations of clinical biofeedback, then apply these to a pediatric population. We will address specifics of patient interaction, sensor placements, choice of physiological modality, choice of feedback, data interpretation, and skill building between sessions. We will also address current issues related to data interpretation for clinical efficacy, building and evaluating clinical protocols, and gaps in clinical research.
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:
- Explain biofeedback to a child aged 8-18.
- Determine an appropriate modality and training goal for a child.
- List common artifacts in data when working with children.
- List current gaps in clinical research on biofeedback with children.

An introductory level program also may serve as the foundation for subsequent intermediate and advanced learning. Introductory level programming may also be related to an emerging area of knowledge or practice.
