COURSE DESCRIPTION

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, physicians,
counselors, 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.
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
mentoring following this introductory course.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
Ø    Explain the basic functions that neurofeedback can affect.
Ø    Describe the basic properties of the electroencephalogram (EEG) including
amplitude and frequency.
Ø    Identify the four “Classic” EEG frequency bandwidths and their associated
arousal states.
Ø    Describe the basic relationship between brain regulation and the EEG.
Ø    Explain the association between brainwave frequencies and other measures
of autonomic arousal.
Ø    Use EEG neurofeedback equipment to record and measure the EEG from
10-20 Electrode (sensor) sites.
Ø    Discuss the various aspects of the EEG that can be trained.
Ø    Describe what artifact signals are and can identify and produce them on
the EEG trace.
Ø    Explain the history and early clinical applications of the EEG.
Ø    Explain the role Dr. Barry Sterman played in identifying the
Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR).
Ø    Describe how arousal affects task performance.
Ø    Describe four types of arousal and the symptoms associated with each of them.
Ø    Explain the use of the arousal-based paradigm for behavior and emotional problems.
Ø    Explain how to utilize symptom-based protocols.
Ø    Describe the research to date on neurofeedback.
Ø    Name four pathologies that have conclusive empirical support for using neurofeedback.
Ø    Name other areas for which there is tentative empirical support for using neurofeedback.
Ø    Discuss criticisms of neurofeedback.
Ø    Describe a comprehensive assessment and can apply it to neurofeedback.
Ø    Describe the use of a quantitative EEG.
Ø    Explain the impact of medication on symptoms and learning.
Ø     Explain professional conduct as it related to neurofeedback.
Ø     Describe the technology behind neurofeedback and know where to find out more information.
Ø     Explain the laws of learning and know where to find more information.
Ø     Discuss the importance of combining traditional therapy skills and ethics with neurofeedback.
Ø     Set up (write) a neurofeedback protocol.
Ø     Utilize frequency specific training based on an arousal assessment.
Ø     Adjust protocols based on response from previous training.
Ø     Make adjustments to a protocol based on review data.
Ø     Utilize targeted approaches to neurofeedback training.
