What’s been happening at BTR?
Bringing Biofeedback and Neurofeedback to BTR
BTR has been working with expert Harry L. Campbell, BPS, who is BCIA Certified in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback, President of Biofeedback Resources International Corporation, and past President of North East Regional Biofeedback Society. Harry and the team at Biofeedback Resources would like to encourage more providers of color to become trained with these tools in order to help their clients. Towards this end, he has created free resource videos delving into biofeedback and neurofeedback. If you would like to watch these videos you can find them under the resources tab on our home page, under the category of Free Resources.
Community Learning Program launch
We have received a great response from BTR members who will be presenting complimentary webinars throughout 2024.

Join us starting January 2024 in building a community where everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the collective growth of Black Therapists Rock.
