  • Becoming Certified in Neurofeedback: The Mentoring Process

    Presenter:  Robert E. Long, MRC, LPC, BCN Fellow.  This 1 hour webinar seeks to provide attendees with an overview of the BCIA mentoring process, including the importance of addressing professional ethics and standards of practice, use of equipment, understanding QEEG, how to conduct a neurofeedback session, and how to determine the efficacy of a neurofeedback session, with BCIA mentees. Neurofeedback based professional organizations, including ISNR and AAPB, encourage their clinical members to become board certified by BCIA. Professionals practicing neurofeedback training, or planning to practice neurofeedback training, are often interested in becoming BCIA Board Certified. One of the requirements to become BCIA...

  • Integrating Neurofeedback and Psychotherapy in Treating Developmental Trauma: A Workshop for New Practitioners and Newly Interested Trauma Therapists (WS-13_2017)

    Presenter: Sebern Fisher, MA Level: Basic Increasingly, psychotherapists, particular those who are working with trauma and personalitydisorders, are looking into the field of neurofeedback. This workshop serves as an openinvitation to them as well as an informational session for those who are just beginning touse it for their traumatized patients. This workshop will introduce them to the brains of theirpatients, to the practice of neurofeedback to quiet fear and to the integration ofneurofeedback and psychotherapy. Learning Objectives:Based upon the content of this presentation attendees will be able to: • Describe the patterns of connectivity in the brain that underlie dissociation.• Describe the role of...

  • Autism and Assessment: An Integrated Approach ISNR FOUNDATIONS (WS-17_2017; 3hr)

    Presenters: Robert Coben, PhD; Anne Stevens, PhD This workshop will guide the understanding of assessment and treatment of autism spectrum disorders using an integrated treatment plan. The attendees will be able to appreciate the need to create a treatment plan based on their own clinical knowledge, patient symptoms, neuroscientific knowledge, neurophysiology, and a neuropsychological and cognitive profile. This workshop will guide the participant’s understanding of autism and its associated neurophysiology. A review of the application of an integrated treatment plan along with clinical demonstrations will be shown as well. Learning Objectives:Based upon the content of this presentation attendees will be able to •...

  • Dirk DeRidder, MD, PhD - Neuromodulation (TMS, tDCS, tRNS, tACS, neurofeedback): Working Mechanisms (K-04_2015)

    Presenter: Dirk DeRidder, MD, PhD The brain is an information processing machine adjusting itself to the environment. Information processing is performed to reduce uncertainty, which is inherently present in a changing environment. Perception can be seen as Bayesian inference, where an intention driven prediction is actively looked in the environment to update the prediction. The percept itself is an emerging property of network activation, processing the information at different oscillation frequencies for each subnetwork. Brain related symptoms or diseases are associated with both activity, and even more importantly, connectivity changes. Using the brain’s adaptive characteristics can be advantageous in retraining the...

  • Bessel van der Kolk, MD - Developmental Trauma: Effects of Abuse and Neglect on CNS Development and a Possible Role for Neurofeedback to Reverse the Damage (K-03_2015)

    Presenter: Bessel van der Kolk, MD This keynote will discuss some of the well-established and direct affects of trauma on developing brains and specific brain functions responsible for attention, concentration, regulating emotions and engaging in satisfying relationships. Dr. Kolk and colleagues are currently studying whether neurofeedback can reverse those brain changes. The importance of this pursuit is evident when considering that many traumatized children and adults continue to feel chronically on edge, scared, agitated, collapsed and helpless, even after exposure to treatment and medications. To deal with this they often try to cope with alcohol or drugs. Medications may make life...

  • Understanding and Treating Developmental Trauma - van der Kolk & Fisher (WS-19_2015)

    Presenters: Bessel van der Kolk, MD, Sebern Fisher, MA Millions of children in the US grow up under conditions of abuse and deprivation. Research has shown that te cumulative effects of adverse childhood experiences constitute the largest public health issue in the US, and overall is more costly than cancer of heart disease. Our studies of over 20,000 children in the National Child Traumatic Stress Network has demonstrated that childhood abuse and neglect results primarily in the deficits in the areas of affect regulation, attention and concentration. Another body of research has shown how various forms of abuse and deprivation have...
