AAPB Endorses BrainFutures Report on Neurofeedback Treatment

BrainFutures’ latest report that outlines a clear case for neurofeedback (NFB) as an efficacious treatment for ADHD and symptoms of anxiety has gained the endorsements of three of the most notable international professional associations in the discipline, including: the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA), and the International Society for Neuroregulation & Research (ISNR).
The report, Neurofeedback: An Efficacious Treatment for Behavioral Health, features an in-depth, evidence-based review of NFB as a treatment for ADHD and symptoms of anxiety.
In the past 20 years, numerous studies, including large meta-analyses, have confirmed NFB treatment as effective for these and other behavioral health conditions. BrainFutures’ paper overviews the history and application of neurofeedback and explores the most recent research.

Infection Risk Mitigation for Biofeedback Providers:

Biofeedback providers necessarily make contact with patients or clients using sterile and non-sterile instruments and sensors. Many biofeedback providers lack the aseptic technique training that is common to licensed medical providers. This review familiarizes biofeedback providers with the essential principles and procedures of infection risk mitigation by touching on routes of disease transmission, disinfection, sanitization, and Spaulding classification. Basic suggestions for infection risk mitigation standards of practice are offered.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback has evolved from a fascination in the 1960s and 70s to a mainstream methodology today for treating certain medical conditions and improving human performance. This evolution has been driven by years of scientific research demonstrating that the mind and body are connected, and that people can be taught to harness the power of this connection to change physical activity and improve health and function. Public interest in biofeedback is growing, and with it the need for a clear answer to the question, “what is biofeedback?” The leading professional organizations representing the field have answered with the following standard definition:

Biofeedback is a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately "feed back" information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.
