  • 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...

  • Neurofeedback Treatment Implementation (PCW-8_2015; 5.5 hrs)

    Presenters: Mike Cohen, Glenn Weiner, PhD This day-long workshop will be a practical workshop addressing the common issues that novices are experiencing in clinical practice.  This would include (1) patient orientation and coaching in session (2) Thresholding and protocol decision making (3) Managing adverse reactions (4) Technician and home training issues.  In addition, participants will be exposed to a model for doing Alpha/Theta training and the rationale and research behind it. Level: Basic

  • Sports Concussion: Assessment, Management and Neurofeedback (WS-13_2015)

    Presenter: Anne Stevens, PhD This workshop is offered for those interested in or currently working with concussed athletes.  The attendee will learn information related to the pathophysiology, as well as, the EEG/QEEG and neuropsychological implications of concussion.  Emerging scientific information related to diagnosis and treatment will be discussed.  The workshop will conclude with case studies and a discussion of implications for clinical practice. Level: Basic - Intermediate

  • Slow Cortical Potentials (WS-05_2015)

    Presenter: Sarah Wyckoff, PhD Slow Cortical Potential (SCP) neurofeedback utilizes a standardized bi-directional event-related training protocol that is efficacious in the treatment of ADHD, epilepsy, and migraines. This workshop is designed for clinicians, researchers, and students who want a comprehensive overview of the scientific basis, treatment rationale, training procedures, technical requirements, therapeutic applications, and outcome research for this form of neurofeedback. Level: Intermediate

  • 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...

  • Neurofeedback and QEEG 101 (WS-06_2015)

    Presenter: Mike Cohen & Glenn Weiner, PhD If you're fairly new to neurofeedback and qEEG, the ISNR conference can be overwhelming.  There's so many concepts and details that no one stops to explain simply.  That's our goal. We slow it down and give you a solid understanding of the basics. It will fill in the gaps and help you better understand other courses, presentations, papers and even discussions with vendors.   Level: Basic

  • Learning Disabilities: Neuroanatomy, Neurophysiology and Neurofeedback (WS-04_2015)

    Presenter: Robert Coben, PhD This workshop will provide information and a state of the art understanding of learning disabilities in their many forms. A neuropsychological typology of various learning disabilities including dyslexia, nonverbal LD, and others will be presented. Neuroscientific underpinnings of these will be discussed to appreciate their neurophysiological causes. Approaches to neurofeedback will also be presented and the research evidence supporting them. Level: Intermediate

  • Substance Abuse: Clinical and Research Applications of Neurofeedback (WS-14_2015)

    Presenter: Richard Davis, PhD & Gene Bodenheimer-Davis, PhD This workshop present concepts related to the use of neurofeedback for substance abuse in the contextof clinical and research applications. Level: Basic - Intermediate

  • Anxiety Disorders: Neuroanatomy, Neurophysiology and Neurofeedback (WS-15_2015)

    Presenter: Kirk Little, PhD Almost one-third of us will, at some point in our lives, experience an Anxiety Disorder.  And a full 75% of Americans report experiencing some symptoms of stress within the past month.  But the vast majority of people report that they are inadequately managing chronic stress.  Because anxiety, fear, and stress-related problems are so pervasive in our culture, and so inadequately addressed by our current health care system, in this workshop, we will summarize and review the brain regions and networks related to anxiety symptomatology.  We will also review the most common psychological approaches to anxiety treatment, and...

  • Managing Migraines in Women Who Want to Become Pregnant or are Already Pregnant (WS-23_2015)

    Presenter: Jeff Carmen, PhD In this workshop, you will learn variables associated with migraines during pregnancy, and behavioral techniques that may be useful for managing them. These include pIR HEG neurofeedback, EEG neurofeedback, peripheral biofeedback, and general relaxation techniques. You will also learn potential problems associated with these techniques. In addition, marketing of your practice for this specific population will be discussed. The workshop will include formal didactic presentations, as well as liberal opportunities for questions from those in attendance.

  • Sayyed Mohsen Fatemi, PhD - Mind)ul Creativity (K-02_2015)

    This talk will explicate how Langerian mindfulness opens up a new horizon for exploring the novel possibility in the world of mind and body. In view of a distinction between meditation based mindfulness and Langerian mindfulness, the talk will elucidate how Langerian mindfulness would give rise to developing new avenues of creativity with implications for health and wellbeing. In line with neuroplasticity and its focus on our power to influence the function and the structure of the brain, the talk will propound how Langerian mindfulness may provide alternative ways of looking at schema, cognition, thinking and decision making.
