This presentation reviews common mistakes that practitioners typically make starting a biofeedback practice and practical ways of avoiding them. The graduate training of clinical psychologists and other mental health practitioners should serve as an overview of how to treat mental health issues. It is also far from the latest and greatest in research and method. Research supports the use of Biofeedback and Neurofeedback as an effective therapeutic tool. Its use in conjunction with traditional forms of psychotherapy and medication has proven to be highly effective in treatment of mental health issues such as mood disorders, PTSD, anxiety, and addictions (Sunder, 2020). However, very little research and guidance exists to support biophysiological practitioners practically. When we consider our ethical obligation to do no harm and demonstrate competence in our practice, it is necessary to seek out mentorship from those who have experienced setting up a successful practice to reduce the likelihood of harm to our clients (BCIA, n.d.). As most practitioners receive this type of training outside of traditional schooling, regardless of discipline, many are faced with the challenge of having to navigate learning the skills, while also successfully implementing them into their practice with little support.

This presentation explores the common stumbling blocks many practitioners face getting started with Biofeedback and Neurofeedback such as why it is best practice to utilize them together instead of a part, the dangers of cutting corners on equipment or education, the potential risks when practitioners lack of proper mentorship, not implementing or reviewing current research, and not implementing a thorough evaluation of client symptoms and history.
