Neurofeedback (NFB) training is currently not standard coursework for a psychologist or psychiatrist’s academic degree, so some post-degree level of training is recommended to ensure professional use.
Recently, the American Psychological Association has recognized biofeedback and psychophysiology as a proficiency in professional psychology.11 Further, organizations such as the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) offer robust certification programs;22 and other organizations, such as the International Society for Neuroregulation and Research (ISNR), publish a code of ethics that outlines qualification recommendations for professional NFB practitioners.
ISNR also hosts a member directory of licensed, certified practitioners.33 The Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) publishes a Code of Ethics and Standards for Performing Biofeedback,44 as well as a menu of references and resources for certification, equipment, insurance, practitioners, and so forth.
Those seeking NFB treatment for ADHD or other stress- and adjustment-related symptoms should use the above listed association resources as a starting point for finding a qualified practitioner. As a safety threshold, a bona fide NFB practitioner would be a licensed clinician or therapist and have NFB certification from BCIA.
