Clinical manual of biofeedback
Biofeedback clinical manual is a specialized and comprehensive book for the use of biofeedback and mindfulness techniques in clinical and research cases. In this book, it is clearly explained about the methods of evaluation and treatment of common disorders such as anxiety disorders, chronic pain, migraine, etc. The combination of mindfulness approach with biofeedback can have many applications in various types of psychotherapy and psychophysiology treatments. In this book, the method of paying attention to awareness is combined with biofeedback so that clients can reduce judgments and prejudices and stop fighting to control symptoms, so that this method helps the progress of treatment. This book begins with an introduction to mindfulness and acceptance and then explains effective ways to combine this approach with biofeedback. Evaluation and treatment protocols are described and finally the treatment of various disorders is discussed and reviewed. This handbook is intended for professionals who have at least basic training in biofeedback and who are interested in learning how to use this information in the clinical context and have more effective treatment. Also, reading this book is recommended to all psychotherapists who use mindfulness-based methods.

Inna Khazan is a Clinical Instructor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School, USA, where she teaches biofeedback. A clinical psychologist specializing in health psychology and biofeedback, Dr. Khazan also maintains a private practice in Boston, working with clients presenting with various psychophysiological disorders, using both biofeedback and mindfulness-based approaches to psychotherapy.
Dr. Khazan has done a masterful job of taking the essence of biofeedback protocols and presenting them in a clear, understandable manner. She captures most of the current practice and techniques in applied psychophysiology/biofeedback.

This masterful book belongs on the desk of every clinician and educator interested in biofeedback. It is the only book that takes biofeedback beyond learning how to attach the sensors to how to do clinical treatment/training. It offers a structured approach to optimize clinical success and is filled with pragmatic clinical instructions and pearls of wisdom which will significantly improve clients’ outcome. It is the much awaited clinical teaching manual that complements our own book, Biofeedback Mastery- An Experiential Teaching and Self-Training Manual. Professor Erik Peper, San Francisco State University.
This book has it all! It a remarkably comprehensive, clearly-written, practical guide to all the ins and outs of biofeedback. If you were ever curious exactly what we mean by overbreathing or heart rate variability, what specifically to ask in a biofeedback evaluation, how to treat irritable bowel or migraine headache, or exactly where to place electromyography sensors, this is the sourcebook you’ve been waiting for. Dr. Khazan has done the work for us. A unique contribution is the mindfulness perspective which helps clients to release self-judgment and the struggle to control their symptoms that undermines treatment and leads to many psychophysiological disorders in the first place. I highly recommend this insightful book for students of both biofeedback and mindfulness-based therapies, and for seasoned clinicians who wish to stay at the cutting-edge of their craft. Professor Christopher Germer, PhD, Clinical Instructor, Harvard Medical School
