"Biofeedback has come to be recognized as seminal, compulsory reading for students, clinicians, and scientists entering and working in the field of applied psychophysiology and biofeedback. With their fourth edition, Schwartz and Andrasik have produced yet another state-of-the-science volume that reflects our evolving knowledge of the mind-body connection and the promise it holds for improving human health and performance. This is the essential desk reference for the field."--Aubrey K. Ewing, PhD, BCB, BCN, past president, Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback "Biofeedback: A PractitioneraEURO (TM)s Guide has long been the essential go-to source for the fields of biofeedback and neurofeedback. The fourth edition--even more encyclopedic than its predecessors--broadens the coverage of neurofeedback, extends the discussions of disorders treated by biofeedback therapies, and introduces emerging evidence in such areas as cardiorespiratory biofeedback, slow cortical potentials for epilepsy, and neurofeedback for traumatic brain injury and autism. Contributors include many pioneers in the field. I recommend this book as an indispensable resource for students and advanced professionals alike."--Donald Moss, PhD, Dean, College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences, Saybrook University "An incredible achievement. Prior editions were notable for excellent content and readability, and this tradition is upheld in the fourth edition. There are many new chapters dealing with EEG biofeedback and instrumentation and other cutting-edge subject matter, while chapters carried over from the prior edition have all been updated. Comprehensive and well organized, the book is an ideal text for students of biofeedback. Instructors, practitioners, and researchers will find it a valuable reference and a source for lifelong learning."--Paul Loubser, MD, Department of Anesthesiology, University of Texas Medical School at Houston "This book has been a vital resource for biofeedback research, teaching, and clinical care since its first edition. The fourth edition will continue to be the definitive biofeedback reference for years to come. Chapters on professional issues, instrumentation, and clinical applications for a wide range of medical and psychological conditions have been expanded, and remain outstanding. New chapters offer crucial coverage of cognitive-behavioral therapy as well as more on theories and methods of relaxation therapies. A 'must' for biofeedback professionals and graduate students."--Jay R. Skidmore, PhD, Department of Clinical Psychology (Emeritus), Seattle Pacific University; consultant in pain and rehabilitation medicine, Northwest Return to Work Rehabilitation Center, Lynnwood, Washington "For both clinicians and researchers, this book provides easy access to authoritative information on biofeedback and other applied psychophysiological approaches. Attention is given to psychosomatic conditions traditionally covered in biofeedback texts, as well as to novel applications for which evidence is just beginning to accumulate. As in prior editions, clinicians will enjoy 'how-to' tips from expert practitioners on establishing and maintaining successful practices. The field of biofeedback has clearly come a long way, and Schwartz and Andrasik position it solidly within current conceptualizations of evidence-based practice."--Kevin T. Larkin, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, West Virginia University
