Summary Part II. This session will introduce the 2012 updated Standards of Practice for Neurofeedback and Neurotherapy, endorsed by the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research. The presenter will discuss relevant guidelines governing: entry level competence; scope of practice; the delivery of experimental or non-documented therapies; the informed consent process; principles of privacy, confidentiality, and privileged communication; guidelines on dual/multiple relationships; and questions of touch, privacy, and respect. The presenter will place emphasis on the imperative to maintain a positive treatment relationship, eliciting rapport and trust. The therapeutic relationship, along with knowledge of current standards of practice and adherence to professional guidelines, minimize the risk of misunderstanding and litigation.

- Attendees will become familiar with the Standards of Practice for Neurofeedback and Neurotherapy (2012), endorsed by ISNR, and their application for everyday decisions in conducting neurofeedback.
- Attendees will review and discuss practice standards governing entry level competence, continuing education requirements, and scope of practice.
