“I am particularly grateful to Ed Hamlin for his many contributions to me and to this text. He is one of the brightest lights in this field, and he gave of his time and expertise to keep me aligned with the rapid evolution in neuroscience and in our shared passion, neurofeedback.”

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, clinical social workers, educators, educational therapists, 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.
