NF in a Clinical Practice – 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,
counselors, educational therapists, clinical social workers, nurses, occupational 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.
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.
NF in a Clinical Practice COURSE OBJECTIVES
