Neurofeedback 201 Online Course:
Skills Training, Protocol Options & Understanding the EEG
This course is designed for clinicians or individuals who have already taken an introductory course and who want to go beyond the basics. Preferably, you should already have some practice with neurofeedback.
Next Course Dates: TBA
When: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (EST), with 1 hour break for lunch
Skill Level: Intermediate & beyond
EEG Spectrum’s EEGer system is primarily used as the teaching tool for this course since it has a very clear EEG display. We may at times also use a BrainMaster, BrainAvatar display. A variety of sample EEG’s will be examined and discussed. We will review what’s a normal EEG, what’s abnormal and what’s artifact. The goal will be to help you understand what to look for in the EEG and how to use this information in order to better target neurofeedback training. We’ll discuss strategies for reducing excessive amplitude and how to improve connectivity between sites. Most of the principles taught in the course can be applied across all neurofeedback systems.
In this course you will learn to:
- Better understand the EEG for targeted training
- Identify a normal EEG & abnormal EEG
- Distinguish between real EEG and artifact
- Utilize strategies for reducing excessive amplitude
- Use the spectral to target inhibits and rewards
- Target specific frequency bands
- Use different protocols for a variety of conditions (depression, anxiety, migraines, etc.)
- Think through protocol choices and what to do when training plateaus
In addition, we will explore some exciting new trends in neurofeedback, including multi-channel coherence training, Z score training, more on qEEG based training, HEG and LENS. If for any reason you are unable to attend, you can still benefit from this valuable training as it will be recorded for replay.
Date To Be Announced
