One of the requirements for certification by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) is a specific number of mentoring hours with a BCIA-approved mentor. This article defines mentoring, distinguishes it from clinical supervision, and provides guidance on the search for an optimal mentor. The authors recommend the use of a mentoring contract, discuss goodness of fit between mentor and mentee, and identify BCIA requirements for mentoring.
