Dear Colleague:

The Professional School of Behavioral Health Sciences offers the following webinar programs in breathing science: a Professional Diploma in Behavioral Breathing Science, a Certification as a Breathing Behavior Analyst, a Certificate in the Science of Breathing Behavior, and a Proseminar in Breathing Case Analysis, Review, and Practicum.

The Diploma program is an interdisciplinary synthesis of the biological and behavioral sciences including physiology, biochemistry, neuroscience, psychology, behavioral science, counseling, and instrumentation technology.  Completion of the certification program is prerequisite to enrollment in the diploma program.

The School offers its professional webinar programs to professionals from countries around the world, including Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America.  Its breathing science faculty includes 15 or more highly experienced practitioners from the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, physiology, physiotherapy, and business; they teach from across the world, stretching from Hilo, Hawaii to Edinburgh, Scotland.


It is estimated that 10 to 25 percent of the US population have unwittingly learned breathing habits that compromise physiology and psychology in ways that trigger, perpetuate, and cause serious symptoms and deficits of all kinds. This enormous problem, only superficially addressed by the treatment-oriented professional community, requires a solution that is interdisciplinary, client-centered, and learning-oriented.

Unfortunately, practitioners from around the world,who make breathing training a part of their profession, are not trained to identify dysfunctional breathing habits and their patterns, much less how to help their clients learn new habits consistent with good physical and mental health.  All too often focus is on symptoms rather than causes.


The Professional Diploma program teaches student-colleagues how to apply the principles of behavior analysis and behavior modification to dysfunctional breathing including its physiology, effects, origins, causes, triggers, motivations, sustaining factors, and self-regulation learning solutions.

The Diploma program trains practitioners, consultants, and educators from diverse disciplines to offer breathing learning services to their clients and patients.  Student-colleagues are taught the science, the practice, and the business of providing these services.


The Diploma program has been designed for two groups of colleague-professionals:

(1) The program serves colleagues who already provide breathing services to their clients, but who are looking to increase their level of expertise, to broaden-out their knowledge base, to expand their practices, and to earn an academic credential that will strengthen the credibility for the breathing services they already offer.

(2) The program serves colleagues who understand the importance of integrating the breathing sciences with their current profession, but who have not already done so; this program provides them with the comprehensive training they need for responsibly, effectively, and credibly providing breathing learning services to existing clients as well as establishing the basis for a new business that attracts new clients.


The Diploma program is an 18-unit program, offered on a half-time trimester basis (one year), including the following  courses: Respiratory Psychophysiology, Breathing Habit Analysis, Breathing Behavior Modification, Behavioral Counseling, Behavior Modification, Cognitive Behavior Modification, Breathing Muscle Psychophysiology, Somatic Biofeedback & Breathing Habits, Autonomic Psychophysiology, Autonomic Biofeedback & Breathing Habits, Breathing & Performance, Writing a Business Plan, and Breathing Case Analysis, Review, & Practicum.


Successful completion of the Breathing Behavior Analyst Certification program provides six units toward completion of the Professional Diploma program and qualifies colleagues for admission.  The Professional School does not accept students who have not completed the Certification program.  Students are required to attend half time (six units per trimester).


Rarely do programs provide students with an opportunity to formulate a business plan for implementing what they’ve learned in the practical world.  WE DO.  Being successful not only means delivering quality and credible services, but it also means establishing a productive network of colleagues and clients.  Successful completion of the Diploma program requires that students are actually providing learning services to their clients before graduation and are doing so as a part of a business plan formulated during the program.


The Professional School has its own e-campus website created by its own programming team, tailored specifically to its organizational requirements. It permits students, faculty, and administration to communicate seamlessly without having to use email and telephone communication.  Students simply login to download course materials, obtain documents, take examinations, see announcements, complete faculty evaluations, communicate with faculty, review webinar recordings, download videos, see grades, view transcript information, register, and make payments.


The Professional School uses Zoom as its live Webinar-Broadcasting Platform.  The platform provides for live and interactive audio and video functions, including functionality that takes students beyond the normal class room environment.  Interaction, for example, includes breaking up into small groups (e.g., two students), doing live physiological monitoring sessions, and providing live demonstrations from anywhere, any time.

Colleagues interested in the Professional Diploma may contact the Professional School at education@bp.edu for an appointment to ask questions about the program, take a tour of its web learning environment, and explore its e-campus web platform.
