Stephen Stern, the President of Stens Corporation, has been involved in biofeedback training and product development since 1972. At that time, he founded The Biofeedback Center of Berkeley, CA, which offered treatment of stress-related disorders. In 1976, it began offering training seminars for therapists, and by 1980 offered an intensive training program course, adaptable to a variety of clinical settings.
In 1986, under the direction of Philip Hughes, Phd., The Professional Biofeedback Certificate Program was created. This program was among the first to receive accreditation from the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America (BCIA).
The Stens Corporation is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Stens Corporation maintains responsibility for the program and its content.
Now recognized nationally as the leader in biofeedback training and the distribution of all major lines of biofeedback instruments and software, Stens Corporation continues to provide innovative and cutting-edge products and unique, hands-on training to practitioners throughout the United States. Well over 15,000 individuals have graduated from Stens Professional Certificate Programs, contributing to its leadership in the biofeedback field.
