In January, Dr. Erik Peper traveled to Israel to present a series of workshops organized by the Israeli Biofeedback-Neurofeedback Association (IBNA). Yuval Oded, a member of the IBNA commented, "Erik is a real master in integrative approaches to healing, his workshops here not only greatly expanded our knowledge in biofeedback but also affected many of us in our general attitude towards therapy by emphasizing the role emotional memories and patterns, and interactions of body, mind, social and physical environment for achieving long term results in optimizing performance and health”.

Biofeedback Basics Software and Biofeedback Mastery
The BFE offers a software suite called Biofeedback Basics that was designed to be a companion to the Biofeedback Mastery book by Erik Peper, Ph.D. (published by the Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback). Together, the book and the suite teach basic skills derived from more than thirty years of biofeedback training and teaching experience. The software display screens help you make sense of the data; monitor and display biological signals of interest; discover the underlying physiology of each signal; accurately record the signal; recognize the basics of self-regulation; use techniques for connecting and attaching sensors; and discriminate real feedback signals from artifacts. In the software Dr. Peper generously shares his clinical wisdom teaching many practical techniques for increasing self awareness, fostering control and self mastery skills, taking charge and actively participating in ones own healing process.

Biofeedback Certification International Alliance
In a recent issue of Psychophysiology Today, Dr. Fred Shaffer and Dr. Don Moss announced, “The BCIA is working hard to promote international certification. In 2010, we changed our name to the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) to emphasize our international mission, created an international task force and added an international section to our website.” Anyone in the US or abroad wishing to learn more about BCIA Certification can visit their website at
