1-day Introduction to Neurofeedback

This post-graduate level didactic seminar is a continuing professional development opportunity for health care professionals in clinical practice including, not limited to, psychology, nursing, physiotherapy, dentistry, osteopathy, occupational therapy, chiropractic, social work, speech pathology or medicine. As mental health practitioners, we are very focussed on psychological processes influencing daily functioning.  Neurofeedback enables both client and practitioner to have greater insight and capacity to influence the physiological processes contributing to behaviour.  The seminar introduces neurofeedback, as a form of therapy – a significant therapeutic intervention for a range of disorders including attention deficit, anxiety, autism, pain, and behaviour disorders.

This workshop will:

  • address behavioural symptoms and their neurophysiological attributes;
  • provide an introduction to neurofeedback in the broad field of applied neuroscience; &
  • introduce the concepts associated with EEG and qEEG-guided training.
