Clinical psychophysiology requires competence in many therapeutic skills, including assessment of physical, mental, affective, and emotional states; biofeedback; and psychotherapy, which we may perform as strict behaviorists, cognitivists, or both. If we are physiologists, we tend to see the mind embedded in brain neurons; if mentalists, we believe a somatic disorder is due to faulty thinking, or the emotional outcropping of symbolic conflict jutting out of a quagmire of illicit urges; if behaviorists, it doesn’t matter—everything yields to “modification” if you do it right. Given a hammer, we tend to treat everything as though it were a nail.
