Course Description:
This session will review legal and ethical responsibilities of biofeedback and neurofeedback practitioners. Biofeedback professionals are governed in clinical practice by state regulations under the relevant licensing act, professional codes of ethics for his or her home profession, and the Professional Standards and Ethical Principles of Biofeedback (9th rev., May 2016) of the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). The workshop will provide an overview of medical ethics, a discussion of the ethical standards of the American Psychological Association, and a review of the most recent AAPB/BCIA Professional Standards and Ethical Principles of Biofeedback. Violation of such guidelines, even when unintended, invites the risk of lawsuit, criminal prosecution, financial penalties, loss of licensure, and expensive and stressful legal and administrative reviews.

Learning Objectives:
Professionals who complete this webinar will:

  • Attendees will become familiar with the Professional Standards and Ethical Principles of Biofeedback, published by BCIA, and their interpretation for decisions in biofeedback practice.
  • Attendees will understand how to navigate the conflicting jurisdictions of state laws and regulations, professional codes of conduct, BCIA guidelines, and federal regulations.
  • Attendees will review and discuss practice standards governing entry level competence, continuing education requirements, and scope of practice.
