ABOUT THE FIELD OF PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGY

What Psychophysiologists Do?


The scope of practice of psychophysiology includes education of the relationship between the mind and the physical body. When individuals are experiencing abnormal symptoms in their daily lives there is at times a misconception that there is something wrong with them. Psychophysiology explains in scientific terms how and why the body reacts the way it does and teaches individuals how to counteract negative bodily reactions and establish a feeling of control and normalcy without the means of medication or Psychotherapy.  As professionals, psychophysiologists work in a wide range of settings. Settings include: private practice, hospitals, , long term care facilities, rehabilitation centres/programs, employee assistance programs, universities, and more.

What to Expect from a Registered Psychophysiologist?


When you seek the services of a Registered Psychophysiologist, you can expect to receive competent, ethical, quality care from a qualified professional who is registered with NABOCP.

CPs are accountable to NABOCP for the quality of care they provide and for their professional conduct. Only individuals who are registered with NABOCP are able to use the title Certified Psychophysiologist”, “Psychophysiologist or any abbreviation or variation thereof in any language, or to hold themself out as qualified to practice as a Psychophysiologist in North America (no matter what title they use).
