Neurofeedback books … to learn neurofeedback
What books to read and where to start: the definitive list
Usually, many neurofeedback books are tough and expensive. On the other hand, many of them are just reports of success cases with lower scientific value. Do not waste your time and money reading the neurofeedback book that does not fit with you. Discover the best titles below.
Types of neurofeedback books
Among the thirty neurofeedback books you can find on online bookstores I have selected 15 titles, of which I have read the vast majority. I have classified them into three different groups, keeping in mind what you may be looking for.
If you have not already entered the neurofeedback field, I recommend that you read some of these light essays first, which do not deepen into practical, technical or scientific features. These neurofeedback books are ideal to get an idea of what neurofeedback is and to find out success stories in many therapeutic applications. If you are a therapist wondering if neurofeedback can help you heal your patients, here is a good way to start.
Tip #1: do not read them if you are already a neurofeedback provider
#2 Neurofeedback handbooks
If you have already taken the step forward entering the world of neurofeedback by acquiring a neurofeedback device, do not settle for just attending the course recommended by the manufacturer. These useful handbooks are books that cover everything you need to know about history, neurophysiology, brain waves, instrumentation, components, protocols and practice of neurofeedback.
Tip #2: you will find a BCIA certification exam in Thompson’s book
#3 Scientific reviews
These scientific reviews are directed by outstanding pioneers in the field of neurofeedback with the involvement of numerous renowned scientists. In addition to a review of neurofeedback basic foundations, these books compile the results of scientific publications of recent years on every clinical indication.
Tip #3: These books are more theoretical than practical, and ideal for scientific evidence lovers
Although this is a handbook of biofeedback, neurofeedback’s twin brother, this book is a comprehensive manual, with detailed tricks and recommendations that can also help you become a better neurofeedback provider.
A final tip!
You can get a glimpse of each neurofeedback book through Amazon.com or Google Books. The time and number of pages you can browse is limited, but you can still get an idea of the content and what type of book it is.
