The Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) is the only institute recognized worldwide that grants certification to biofeedback and neurofeedback practitioners. Judy Crawford is BCIA’s semi-retired Executive Director and one of my dearest friends. I have served on the BCIA Board since 2005, chairing it from 2010 to 2017, and managing its finances as Treasurer from 2017 to the present. BCIA service has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my professional life.






The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB), the Biofeedback Federation of Europe (BFE), and the International Society for Neuroregulation and Research (ISNR) endorse BCIA certification. No other certifying body has been approved by all three of these international membership organizations.







Board Certification is not a license to practice. Certification demonstrates a commitment to carefully developed standards as healthcare or performance providers. BCIA certificants demonstrate their commitment to professionalism by completing degree and educational requirements, endorsing a rigorous ethical code, learning to apply biofeedback skills during mentorship, and passing a proctored online examination.

BCIA was established in 1981 to certify individuals who meet education and training standards in biofeedback and to progressively recertify those who advance their knowledge through continuing education.







Currently, more than 1,500 healthcare professionals have achieved this certification in 35 countries. BCIA has affiliates in Australia and Mexico.
