Beginning practitioners often struggle with implementing biofeedback in a standardized way. With a protocol, a practitioner can build the confidence to help patients to gain skills in stress management and biofeedback for improvement in different mental or physiological conditions. With a standardized 8-week protocol, practitioners can have some guidance to help assist patients with stress related conditions impacting both mood and physiological states. Furthermore, adherence to practice can be a challenge for patients. With motivational interviewing, the practitioner can help the client to implement change. With motivational interviewing, key questions can identify importance, confidence and sustained practice in biofeedback by eliciting intrinsic motivation for change. In this 8-week protocol, practitioners can have a guide to use biofeedback, motivational interviewing, and stress management interventions to reduce the negative impact of stress or chronic disease.
