The purpose of the Level 1 Intermediate neurofeedback course is to strengthen and build upon material covered in introductory Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice Course.
Questions always arise after beginning to use the equipment and train clients. This course is intended as a response to those questions and to introduce the next level of skills. Course format will be a combination of didactic and hands-on training. The last day will be to permit specific case review for your clients or setting. We will be using primarily the EEGer4 software and equipment for demonstration purposes, but the material can be applied to other forms of Beta/SMR or Alpha training. You are encouraged to bring your own computer for access to client material. The group will be limited to maximize individual contact and to be better able to address specific questions.

The purpose of this training course is to present a comprehensive approach to the clinical application of the emerging EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) modality. The course is intended for clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, educators, educational therapists, clinical social workers, rehabilitation specialists and academic researchers in neurophysiology and biofeedback practitioners who have little or no background or experience with neurofeedback. It is also a good refresher course for current neurofeedback practitioners.
The course includes pre-course reading materials from selected professional texts (which you will receive via email). It is important that you give adequate time to familiarize yourself with this material. It will help you gain more from the course. The four-day course is a combination of didactic presentations and hands-on training. Multiple practicums are conducted over the four days. Neurofeedback systems are provided for practice by attendees.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will have gained a clear overview of the capabilities of the EEG biofeedback process, how to evaluate clients with respect to its possible use, how to choose an appropriate EEG biofeedback protocol and implement it on computerized instrumentation, and how the process might be used in their individual practices. We recommend additional courses and clinical consultation following this introductory course.
