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 sessions provide additional opportunity for hands on equipment training. Topics in the course include: • Orientation to EEG Biofeedback • Basic Neurophysiology and Neuroanatomy • Treatment Planning • Instrumentation & electronics • Research< • Psychopharmacology Considerations • Professional Conduct

The Biofeedback Society of Florida Fall Conference: Exploring the capabilities of digital biofeedback and neurofeedback instrumentation: Integrating hardware, software, and clinical skills for improved efficacy  
Saturday, September 19, 2015 12:00 AM - Sunday, September 20, 2015 12:00 AM
The Florida Hotel & Conference Center at the Florida Mall

This two-day workshop is for health professionals and researchers who want to immerse themselves in the state of the science of digital biofeedback and neurofeedback instrumentation. The program will offer a comprehensive overview of stress profiling and specific modalities, showcasing heart rate variability (HRV), EEG- neurofeedback, skin conductance, thermography, respiration, and EMG-muscle rehab. The hands-on, guided experience and demonstration segments will teach clinically useful skills for users of the Thought Technology BioGraph, the NeXus wireless Biotrace, and other digital systems. Sunday’s program draws from the experience of two master clinicians who will present through lecture and demonstration, the essentials of effective peripheral biofeedback training to enhance relaxation and lower arousal, and using portable biofeedback devices to augment treatment.

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.

1-Day Reading the Raw EEG: Analysis and Interpretation  
Thursday, September 24, 2015 - All Day
South Bend, IN

This one-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… and to show that the source of the quantitative features is actually the raw waveform’s morphology, which is how the QEEG is actually validated: Against the classical raw EEG, which remains the gold standard.

Bio-behavioral Diagnosis and Treatment of Primary Headache Disorders with Dr. Steven Baskin  
Friday, October 2, 2015 - All Day
Thought Technology, Ltd. 8205 Montreal/Toronto Blvd Montreal West, QC H4X 1N1

This workshop is an in-depth clinical guide to the many advances in the diagnosis and management of migraine, cluster headache, tension-type headache and their many variants. The workshop will first provide the participants with a thorough overview of the diagnosis of the different primary headache disorders. It will then explore the pathophysiology of the different disorders integrating neurochemical, physiological, behavioral, and psychological perspectives. Pharmacologic, psychophysiological, and behavioral treatment alternatives will be reviewed in relation to both clinical efficacy and underlying pain mechanisms. The workshop will help the biofeedback therapist understand the basics of successful headache diagnosis and treatment and better communicate with the medical community. Behavioral and psychophysiological protocols will be thoroughly discussed. This workshop will also review clinical studies on paradoxical effects of medication overuse in relation to treatment outcome. Chronic migraine will be thoroughly examined including the transformation process from episodic to chronic headache. Issues of psychiatric co-morbidity will be explored.
