Interested in Contributing to My New Book?
The power of neurofeedback is in the client stories
Welcome to this private page created specifically for neurofeedback professionals who’re considering contributing to my new book.
This book, as yet untitled, is a compilation of stories about people in the U.S. and globally who have benefitted from neurofeedback and other forms of biofeedback. This is not a collection of testimonials or brief anecdotes but rather a series of easy-to-read feature-like stories.
You do not have to write these stories. They will be written by a professional writer. You simply choose a client with an impressive story who is willing to be interviewed (real names aren’t used). Each story will include a short PROFILE of the clinician who helped.*
Why am I doing this?
- The stories of neurofeedback are powerful.
- The rest of the world doesn’t know about it.
- Our field doesn’t tell those stories well enough.
- Clinicians are motivated by it.
This book is a collaboration to get those stories out – from MANY clinicians and MANY clients…to make neurofeedback attractive – maybe even cool. To show what’s possible.
What’s in it for you?
You benefit by being in what I expect to be a high quality and popular book (target 100,000 copies) that will be sold around the world. I think we can position this to be big, far beyond “neurofeedback.”
Here are links to several of the stories that have already been written for inclusion in the book
More about the stories
These stories, written to help the lay public understand the power of neurofeedback, typically cover the person’s background as it relates to their presenting issues and how those issues interfered with their lives. They include brief descriptions of what they had tried in the past to tackle those problems that didn’t work, how they came to do neurofeedback, how much neurofeedback they did, improvements they noticed during the process, and how they are now doing.
These stories will be arranged by topic (anxiety, concussion, etc.), and will include a bio of the practitioner who provided their client(s) for inclusion. We estimate that the book will contain 30-40 stories.
It costs a lot to create a book. I found that out when I published Neurofeedback 101.
By sharing the cost of creating the content for this book, you participate in something that helps us all; something that can have a far bigger impact than individual efforts alone. Participating clinicians will end up with a terrific story for their website/office that can be used for education or marketing as soon as the article is finalized.
Professional writing and editing take a LOT of time. When we began this project, we charged $250 for the first half dozen clinicians in order to build story inventory and have something to show other interested clinicians.
Our updated pricing per article is $375 unless it takes more than six hours to complete. These client stories typically take five to nine hours from start to finish. Additional hours will be billed at $65. (It would normally cost $500-plus for a professional to write that sort of article).
My writer Gwen Carden (who helped write and edit Neurofeedback 101) is terrific, fast, extremely meticulous, and honest about billing her time. This is a labor of love for her, too.
*We do the rest.
I hope you’ll want to join me in this ambitious undertaking and become part of a unique and valuable educational endeavor.
