Massachusetts Psychologist (1998) Biofeedback Treatment potential EXPANDING
The woman’s voice on psychologist Paul Swingle Ph.D.’s answering machine was slurred and slow, like a record played at the wrong speed. The patient, 35, whose speech had been affected following the removal of a brain tumor, struggled to make herself understood as she scheduled her next appointment. Three months and 12 sessions later, the voice on the machine was clear and vibrant, a result of integrating biofeedback into her treatment, says Swingle, who is a Coordinator of the Clinical Psychophysiology Clinic at McLean Hospital. He has saved a series of messages the woman left to illustrate her progress.
