Breathing Science


Professional School of Behavioral Health Sciences

Webinar Certificate, Practicum, and Certification programs

The Professional School trains (1) healthcare practitioners, human service professionals, health educators, and performance enhancement consultants to integrate breathing learning services into their practices and businesses; (2) breathing specialists to integrate the principles of behavior analysis into their breathing practices; and (3) high-performance professionals such as athletes, performers, artists, pilots, and specially trained operators to bring breathing science applications into their work.

To this end, the Professional School offers

(1) a WEBINAR CERTIFICATE PROGRAM in the Science of Breathing Behavior Analysis and

(2) a WEBINAR PRACTICUM PROGRAM in Breathing Case Analysis & Review which constitute

(3) CERTIFICATION as a Certified Breathing Behavior Analyst.


The Science of Breathing Behavior Analysis

Professionals earn a Breathing Science Certificate, which is the first requirement for completing Certification as a Breathing Behavior Analyst. This sequence of courses provides the practical knowledge of the required physiology, behavioral science, and technology necessary for identifying dysfunctional breathing habits and assisting clients to disengage these habits and learn new ones for enhancing health and performance.

This webinar-Certificate program consists of three 15-hour courses (45 CE hrs, 3 academic units) that qualify professionals to: (1) assess breathing habits and their effects on health and performance based on the principles of behavior analysis, (2) assist clients in managing and/or overcoming dysfunctional breathing habits that compromise physiology, psychology, and performance based on the principles of behavior modification, (3) assist clients in improving physical, behavioral, and psychological performance, and (4) use capnography and related instrumentation for assisting their clients in identifying and overcoming dysfunctional breathing habits.


Case Analysis and Review

Professionals who have earned the Breathing Science Certificate become CERTIFIED as Breathing Behavior Analysts by completing this intensive hands-on practicum program where they demonstrate and document their competence and proficiency in breathing behavior analysis and breathing behavior modification.

Certification requires completion of the Case Analysis & Review Proseminar consisting of nine 5-hour webinar sessions (45 CE hours, three academic units) where participants, who have completed the Breathing Science Certificate, present four cases of their own while completing practicum assignments to be submitted to the Coordinator.

Participants learn first-hand from the Professional School Practicum Coordinator, and from interacting with colleagues attending the Proseminar, how to sharpen their breathing habit assessment and behavior modification skills. Specific cases presented by participating professionals are reviewed in detail, including histories, checklists, behavioral reports, physiology reports, homework assignments, data analysis, video recordings, learning plans, and assessment and learning session summaries.


Certified Breathing Behavior Analyst (CBBA)

Colleagues are awarded CERTIFICATION upon successful completion of both the Breathing Science Certificate and the Breathing Practicum Program. They receive a Certification Diploma and an official transcript from the Professional School. Graduates may use the designation CBBA after their names.

The combined 90-hour curriculum includes three 15- hour workshop courses (3 units, 45 hours) and one 45-hour Case Analysis & Review Proseminar (3 units). Upon completion, participants earn six ACADEMIC credit units and 90 CE hours.
