Enhanced Beginner Skills

This eight-week, online webinar course is designed for the beginner neurofeedback clinician – or can also be a great refresher for the more experienced neurofeedback clinician.

Each of the eight recorded sessions will be available for you to watch for one week before the live Q&A session.

  • Learn 4 common EEG patterns associated with over and under arousal.
  • Get tips on electrode placement, good impedance, and proper placement of 10-20 sites.
  • Begin to understand what the EEG reveals, in terms of the client's internal experience, learn to assess client progress from it.
  • Get clear on the process of training your client:  the conversation about what is neurofeedback, setting realistic client goals, assessing symptoms, evaluating progress, and making changes to protocols.

This class will reinforce core concepts and position you for success in developing your neurofeedback practice.


Schedule of Live Q & A Sessions:

Monday, Oct 19, 10 am EDT 
Monday, Oct 26, 10 am EDT
Monday, Nov 2, 10 am EDT
Monday, Nov 9, 10 am EDT
Monday, Nov 16, 10 am EDT
Monday, Nov 23, 10 am EDT
Monday, Nov 30, 10 am EDT
Monday, Dec 7, 10 am EDT

Make sure you understand the times of the schedule of live sessions, and that it works for your local time zone, especially if you want CE credit, as that requires attendance. The sessions will all be recorded, so you can watch them at your convenience.

Course Objectives:
Session 1:  Explain the neuroscientific rationale behind our standard neurofeedback training protocols

Session 2:  Describe the arousal model and how it relates to the EEG

Session 3:  Combine information from the arousal symptom checklist, client history, and baseline EEG recordings to identify the best beginning neurofeedback training protocol. 
       - Explain how to find the theta/beta ratio at CZ and the peak alpha frequency at PZ. 
       - Describe how looking at changes in alpha amplitude from eyes open to eyes closed reflects my client's nervous system arousal.

Session 4:  Identify 2 common overarousal EEG patterns and 2 common underarousal EEG patterns.

Session 5:  Explain neurofeedback to clients using easy to understand language. 
       - Describe how to prioritize EEG issues. 
       - Identify helpful ways to recruit my intentions to set realistic goals as well as describe how this process might differ when working with children vs. adults.

Session 6:  Identify the different elements of the EEGer therapist screen and describe what the amplitudes of the filtered bands should be according to published age norms. 

Session 7:  Determine the best way to manage training thresholds and identify how changing a threshold alters the message I'm sending my client's brain. 

Session 8:  Explain (can we use the word evaluate?) when and how to make adjustments to the training protocol. 
       - Identify 2 specific strategies for reviewing my clients' progress with them. 

Each live session earns 1 CE.  You must log-in and attend each live session you wish to get credit for.

Mary Ammerman, PsyD, BCN earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. Since 2006, she has combined neurofeedback training with talk therapy in her work with clients. Mary is Vice-President of the Institute for Applied Neuroscience and the author of educational materials for clinic clients as well as other professionals.  Mary became board certified in neurofeedback in 2012 and has been teaching the practicum section of Dr. Ed Hamlin's introductory Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice course since 2013. She mentors beginning neurofeedback providers across the United States and Canada. The clinicians she mentors have commented on her ability to explain complicated concepts in clear and simple language, using humor and every day analogies.

Refund/Cancellation Policy:  You may receive a refund -- minus the service fee -- if you cancel 2 weeks prior to the start of the webinar. The service fee, which covers administrative and card fees, will not be refunded.

What People Are Saying:

“Mary, this session is so helpful and packed with valuable concepts. You explain the concepts in a way that make things understandable, retainable, and repeatable. I saw it live and now watched it again - I picked up new things the second time, and plan to watch it again in a week to reinforce my understanding of the networks and how they interplay with brain functioning. Thank you!”
