“Biofeedback is interacting with the interior self.” So wrote Barbara Brown in her popular book on brain-body interactions more than a decade ago (1974, p. 1). What her definition lost in specificity it made up for in capturing the new direction this area provided for psychology. Biofeedback and other innovative therapies of the 1960s and 1970s championed the self-regulating potential of human beings and renewed an interest in “mind over matter.” The title of Barbara Brown’s 1974 book illustrates the point nicely—New Mind, New Body: Biofeedback, New Directions for the Mind.
