Education

Education: The Foundation supports continuing education of licensed / certified clinicians from all health care fields, such as medicine, nursing, psychology / counseling, physical and occupational therapy, and social work in order to assist these clinicians in incorporating behavioral medicine techniques into their practices.

Continuing education courses are currently offered via distance education. Hands-on training in the use of psychophysiological recording devices and patient assessment is provided either in Washington State or through local contacts. Distance education courses include “Biological basis of behavior / basic psychophysiology”, “Anatomy and physiology for behavioral clinicians”, “General Biofeedback (the BCIA certification course)”, “Psychophysiology of pain”, “Research Techniques for Clinicians” and “Behavioral interventions for pelvic floor disorders”. Clinicians who take the Foundation’s core courses are eligible to receive the Foundation’s certificate of professional studies in clinical psychophysiology.
