(Vocus/PRWEB) February 18, 2011
The much anticipated February 22nd launch of the Biofeedback Basics Suite is expected to attract a large crowd at the Biofeedback Foundation of Europe’s 15th annual conference opening in Munich next week. Designed for the world-leading ProComp Infiniti system, this Limited Edition Software Suite includes a 103-page software manual. In the manual, author Dr. Erik Peper, makes available a lifetime of experience and knowledge to the novice to complement his best-selling Biofeedback Mastery book.
"Biofeedback Mastery is a superb laboratory manual for training students and staff in all the major biofeedback modalities. Each unit teaches instrumentation and clinical skill fundamentals through intuitive and well-illustrated exercises. This manual is an indispensable resource for educators, students, and clinicians." said Fred Shaffer, PhD, Professor of Psychology – Truman State University.
Maureen Haney, MS, Director of the Psychophysiology Lab - California State University, Fullerton said of the Biofeedback Mastery book, "An invaluable resource for the novice, as well as the experienced biofeedback practitioner. Among its exemplary features are its highly structured units on biofeedback modalities that facilitate the well-detailed 'how to' instructions. I strongly recommend Biofeedback Mastery - An Experiential Teaching and Self-Training Manual as an effective and efficient means for promoting instrumentation mastery and clinical competency in the field of applied psychophysiology. Students' feedback consistently states that the manual greatly enhances comprehension and application of psychophysiological principles."
The final chapter of the software manual introduces techniques described by Dr. Peper in “Muscle Biofeedback at the Computer`”, a practical manual used by San Francisco State University as part of its program for which Dr. Peper received the 2004 California Governor’s Safety Award. The techniques can be applied using the ProComp Infiniti system and the software in the Limited Edition Suite.
