"Many people misunderstand or are intimidated by neurofeedback. For example, therapists often express the mistaken beliefs that it inserts something into the brain, which it does not. This course will help clarify what neurofeedback is and what it is not, and who it can help."

This course is designed to address neurofeedback's principles, history, and the methods used in neurofeedback training. It will also explore how to evaluate a neurotherapist before referring your client to them, or options for pursuing your own training in the modality.

Among the topics to be examined:

  • The basic principles of neurofeedback. *How NF is connected to biophysiology, operant and classical conditioning.
  • The history of neurofeedback.
  • The energy/electrical frequencies in the brain and how they affect arousal.
  • Various models of neurofeedback training.
  • Populations neurofeedback has been shown to help and what models were used.
