NeuroMeditation Workshop  
Friday, December 2, 2016 6:30 PM - Saturday, December 3, 2016 5:00 PM
Cleveland, Ohio

Despite the obvious appeal and increased accessibility of meditation training with programs such as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), it remains a significant challenge for many individuals to maintain a consistent practice (Brandmeyer & Delorme, 2013). Early meditators often complain that they do not know if they are “doing it right” or give up before realizing any significant benefits. By providing the meditator with immediate feedback on their brainwave state, a neurotherapist can help define and refine the process, potentially increasing motivation, interest and impact. Incorporating neurofeedback into a meditation practice can potentially help with these concerns. In addition, because meditation and neurofeedback are both involved in the training of mental states, it seems obvious that these practices could be used to enhance each other, either in an attempt to achieve deeper states of meditation or by combining them as a treatment intervention for specific mental health conditions such as ADHD, anxiety or depression (Brandmeyer & Delorme, 2013). In this three day workshop, we will explore four different styles of meditation practices based on the role of attention, intention, brainwave states and brain regions involved; these four styles include Focused Attention, Open Monitoring, Automatic Self-Transcending and Loving-Kindness/Compassion (Cahn & Polich, 2006; Lutz et al., 2004). Using this information, we can identify which practices might be best suited for particular goals (Tarrant, 2016). In this way, it is possible to link each style of meditation with specific mental health concerns as a therapeutic intervention.

Brain-based assessment and treatment alternatives for the 21st century  
Tuesday, January 17, 2017 9:30 AM - Sunday, January 22, 2017 3:30 PM
Cleveland, Ohio

Whether you’re about to dive into the exciting world of QEEG and brain mapping or trying to enhance existing skills with database-guided neurofeedback, this 4-day workshop will unlock the mysteries of how morphology of RAW EEG converts into color-coded normative brain maps that provide clinically relevant insights. Our team of highly qualified and experienced instructors will cover everything from the basics of how databases are developed to the subtle skill set needed to identify and address underlying neuronal dysregulation. Significant time will be allotted for hands-on practice with the established equipment and designs, as well as introducing cutting edge approaches that are demonstrating promising results. The brilliant combination of normative databases with BrainMaster’s Mini-Q and Discovery 24E adds a dimension that allows the practitioner to observe and train brain activity monitored at up to 19 channels (LZT ZOK, Z PLUS, PZ Motive, PZ Mean, including Z Bars, BrainAvatar, and Live Topographic Mapping) using the innovative live Z-Score methods (PZOK). Practitioners from all levels of experience will walk away from this workshop with a richer understanding of how to use qEEG brain mapping and analysis to increase clinical efficacy.

Infra-slow Fluctuation (ISF) Training Workshop  
Friday, February 24, 2017 9:00 AM - Sunday, February 26, 2017 1:30 PM
Cleveland, Ohio

Mark Smith, the developer of ISF neurofeedback, was the first to grasp the advantage of using a DC coupled amplifier for Infra-slow training. In 2007, in collaboration with BrainMaster Technologies Inc. and others, the method was established on a DC coupled amplifier, the Atlantis. This innovation allowed for the imaging of these minute signals with more clarity and less noise than conventional AC amplifiers. Recent equipment and software advancements, specifically the Discovery and BrainAvatar 4.0 software, have allowed for 1, 2, 4, or 19 channel recording and ISF training. This innovation has provided a window on the mechanism of bipolar ISF training. We can now simultaneously render this signal in a bipolar and referential montage. The BrainAvatar 4.0 software has provided a platform for the combination of ISF training and concurrent Z score training/analysis and/or sLORETA training/analysis. This improvement makes for a safe, effective, and data rich method of slow wave training.
