ADVANCED EEG AND QEEG TOPICS  
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 - Thursday, April 30, 2015
Atlanta, GA

This 2-day course will provide a foundation for understanding the importance of de-artifacting and montage on outcomes, including the evaluation of drowsiness/vigilance for understanding basic brain function. This includes the impact of current modeling approaches such as phenotypes and vigilance modeling, and also the impact of these models on medication selection in psychiatry.

READING THE RAW EEG: ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION  
Friday, May 1, 2015 - All Day
Atlanta, Ga

This half-day course will provide a mechanism for acquiring understanding of the visual EEG as it reflects basic brain function/dysfunction. This includes review of multichannel EEGs, evaluating and reducing artifacts and using the EEG and some simple spectral processing to develop neurofeedback protocols or propose medication matches. One can see that the source of the quantitative features, the EEG recording provides more information, such as the raw waveform’s morphology. This is how the QEEG is actually validated: against the classical raw EEG, which remains the gold standard.

The Open Focus/Brain Synchrony Workshop  
Saturday, May 16, 2015 - Monday, May 18, 2015
Princeton Biofeedback Centre

The Open Focus training workshop held twice a year, in spring and fall in Princeton, New Jersey, offers professionals as well as non-professionals an opportunity to train with Dr. Les Fehmi using his open focus method of attention in conjunction with his neurosynchrony training equipment. No previous training is required to attend our workshop. Dr. Fehmi is the originator of Open Focus attention training exercises and is considered to be a pioneer in the field of biofeedback and neurofeedback. The training of whole head, phase synchronous brain wave activity yields significant performance benefits. Open focus attention training exercises can be used clinically along with neurofeedback instruments to reduce the many symptoms of stress, dissolve physical and emotional pain and to enhance well-being and performance.

This intermediate/advanced workshop trains clinicians to use VR systems and physiological monitoring in order to facilitate successful exposure based treatment of PTSD, including combat and civilian in origin. The theory and practice of inducing graded exposure with minimal, moderate and high arousal and training in arousal control as facets of Virtual Reality Therapy will be the centerpiece of the training.

20th Annual International CyberPsychology, CyberTherapy & Social Networking Conference
Monday, June 29, 2015 - Thursday, July 2, 2015
University of California, San Diego Campus in La Jolla, California
The CYPSY Conference began in 1996 and featured presentations dealing mainly with conceptual matters, ‘what ifs’ and the future possibilities of healthcare and technology. The conference largely focused on Virtual Reality, but has now grown to be more inclusive of other interactive technologies and to include presentations that demonstrate controlled clinical trials. It has also grown to include the investigation of social networking tools on individual behavior, society, and interpersonal relationships.

CYPSY20 includes presentations in Virtual Reality , Games for Health, Augmented and Mixed Reality, Avatars, Shared Virtual Worlds, Video Game Virtual Reality (VGVR), mobile health and other emerging applications.

Social Media: Psychological Research Methods and Therapeutic Applications Workshop
Monday, June 29, 2015 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
University of California San Diego (UCSD) – La Jolla, California

In this workshop, we aim to challenge some of the assumptions regarding social media that are implicit in the research methods, measurement instruments, and sampled populations used to acquire data. The issues we raise also have implications for e-therapy practice and the interpretation of data relating to the efficacy of e-therapy.

We will examine:

Types of data available via social media and online spaces
Assumptions about context of, content in, and audience for online public and private communications
Visual versus textual forms of communication
Validity of psychological measurements used in cross-disciplinary research
Relationship between psychological research and psychological therapies
We will also run a hands on session on biofeedback (heart-rate variability) as a therapy and as a research tool.

Theoretical and Clinical Considerations in Advanced EEG Biofeedback Methodologies  
Wednesday, September 23, 2015 - Thursday, September 24, 2015
South Bend, IN

EEG Biofeedback has radically expanded over the past 10 years. As a result the list of treatment options can seem overwhelming. Amidst the clamor of competing ideologies, manufacturers and treatment modalities, it is the responsibility of the advanced EEG biofeedback clinician to create a treatment approach that is effective and engaging for the trainee/patient/client. This class moves beyond the introduction to basic EEG feedback modalities and equipment, and into an overview of the state of the art of EEG, and the subsequent options and complex treatment decisions that are necessary in operating competently in the modern Neurofeedback climate.
