Biofeedback Clinic and Certification Center

The Biofeedback Clinic and Certification Center (BCCC) is a community clinic that provides psychophysiological interventions for such stress-related problems as anxiety, teeth grinding, insomnia, headaches, and test anxiety.

A variety of personalized treatment programs are available that can help reduce stress and improve overall health. The clinic offers personalized coaching proven to enhance performance and productivity in academics, athletics, and business.

Certification

BCCC offers face-to-face and online training in biofeedback leading to a certification accredited by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). Widener’s Biofeedback Clinic and Certification Center, as a BCIA-approved training facility, can assist graduate students and therapists in completing the following requirements for certification in general biofeedback: 

  • Didactic Training: Based on what BCIA calls “The Blueprint of Knowledge,” Widener’s web-based course fulfills the 48-hour didactic educational requirement for certification in general biofeedback. Interested students/therapists can even receive a sample of Lecture One.
  • Practical Experience: BCIA requires 50 patient/client biofeedback sessions, 10 sessions of personal training, and 10 case studies. We will assist you in selecting equipment (both rental and purchase options), provide you with a lab log to guide you through the 50 sessions, and give you hands-on equipment training at our Biofeedback Center. Arrangements can be made to complete this work at our Biofeedback Clinic if you do not have a facility of your own.
  • Mentoring Guidance: BCIA requires 20 hours of mentoring by a BCIA-certified professional. The mentor will oversee your practical experience requirements. Widener will provide this mentoring, which can be completed either face-to-face or online. 
  • Exam Preparation: Widener hosts the BCIA exam each January. We conduct review sessions just before each exam.
