Guided by practitioner-faculty with years of experience in the field of psychophysiology, students will participate in two five-day long Saybrook Residential Conferences per year and attend the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) annual meeting every year they are in the program. In addition, students pursuing a Ph.D. in Psychophysiology may choose between two doctoral level specializations designed to prepare graduates for careers in a professional practice informed by a scientific understanding of mind and body.
Psychophysiology provides useful concepts and skills—biofeedback, relaxation training, hypnosis, neurofeedback, stress management—and is applicable throughout an extensive range of industries. Graduates with a psychophysiology degree will use their knowledge to further their careers in sports medicine, education, business, the military, and clinical environments. Focused on a whole-person approach toward stress-related diseases, chronic health conditions, and optimal performance, this applied psychophysiology degree prepares graduates to positively affect people’s lives through a comprehensive understanding of the interconnectedness between psychology and biology.
*Our Ph.D. in Psychophysiology program is intended for professionals who wish to pursue non-clinical careers or expand on their existing licenses. This program is not designed to prepare graduates to qualify for clinical licensure or certification.
