Professional EEG Neurofeedback Certification Program
Joe Kamiya Ph.D, discovered EEG Neurofeedback in 1959. This incredible learning technology developed gradually until about 1990. Since then, interest has surged providing opportunity for thousands of health care and educational professionals. Many of the practitioners we have trained have found EEG Neurofeedback to be so effective and widely applicable that it has become the most important strategy of their practice, adjunctive to almost all of the clinical and educational therapies they use.
Because EEG Neurofeedback influences the Central Nervous System and the CNS affects everything else, a growing number of world class scientists and practitioners are suggesting that the emergence of EEG Neurofeedback may be one of the most important developments in health care and education of our time. The extraordinary possibilities implied by the evolution of EEG Neurofeedback are generating escalating international enthusiasm and research.
This competency based curriculum includes practical, easily learnable strategies which may be used with virtually all of the most common EEG Neurofeedback applications. Designed to give the practitioner the knowledge and tools needed in order to rapidly achieve clinical and economic success in EEG Neurofeedback, this program emphasizes those neurofeedback adjunctive applications for which there is the greatest demand, including but not limited to: ADD / ADHD / Conduct Disorder & other Learning disabilities, Autism Disorders, Substance Abuse, eating disorders and addictive behaviors, PTSD, Multiple Personality Disorder, Depression, Behavioral and Stress Related Disorders, Anxiety / Panic Attacks, Pain Management, Chronic Pain, headaches (Migraine and Tension), RSD, Fibromyalgia, Phantom Limb etc., Adult and childhood sleep disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury, Stroke Rehabilitation, Dementia (non-Alzheimer’s), Epilepsy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and MindFitness® Life / Performance Enhancement.
Includes demonstrations and hands-on training on the most popular, versatile, cost effective, reliable and well supported EEG neurofeedback systems made as well as introductions to neurocardiology (Hear Rate Variability), Temperature, EMG and other complementary modalities, lively dialogues, case histories and the information you need in order to select the right equipment for your circumstances.
Many practitioners have told us that they had attended other EEG neurofeedback seminars but this is the one that put it all together for them and showed them how to provide quality neurofeedback services while clarifying many theories and hypotheses associated with EEG Neurofeedback.
Previous experience in biofeedback, EEG neurofeedback or computers is not required.
Supervised evening sessions provide additional opportunity for hands on equipment training.
Topics in the course include:
- Orientation to EEG Biofeedback
