Introduction to neurofeedback for the Autism Spectrum

Course Description

Our autism course is designed to address the applications of neurofeedback as a training tool for disregulated states for people on the spectrum. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has shown a dramatic increase in prevalence.  Autism is defined as a neurodevelopment disorder characterized by impairment in social interaction and communication. People who fall within the Autism Spectrum appear to be extremely over aroused.  This is often related to their sensory overload, hyper focus, and difficulty processing the subtleties of relationships. In the most severe cases they are forced to retreat into a trance-like world because their system is overloaded by sounds, movements, and even physical touch. These issues seem to respond best to neurotherapy that exercises slower frequencies. This can teach them to slow down their excessive processing speed so that they don’t feel so overwhelmed by the world. In contrast to behavior therapy, positive outcomes as a result of neurofeedback training are achieved over the course of several months rather than a year or more of intensive training.  The training outcomes of neurofeedback training are maintained over time and tend not to reverse after treatment is ended as in drug therapy, diet therapy, and supplementation with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

Our courses are designed to be hands-on, interactive, and educational.  Upon completion of this course you will: 

  • Have the ability and knowledge to run your own neurofeedback sessions on your clients
  • Learn about and use protocols to decrease arousal
  • Help reduce client's time in therapy
  • Understand how and where to market neurofeedback in the autism community
  • Provide support for clients and their families
  • Empower ASD clients to more readily engage in their communities
  • Enable your clients to being to live the life they want to lead

Introduction to Neurofeedback Training for PTSD

Course Description:

Post traumatic stress disorder is defined as an anxiety disorder that some people get after experiencing or witnessing an event “outside the range of usual human experience”.  People with post traumatic stress re-live the trauma in their mind, body and/or sometimes even visualize it happening over again.  A traumatized person may begin efforts to avoid thoughts, feelings or conversations about the event.  He or she will often engage in a very busy life, because it is during idle moments that intrusive thoughts and memories haunt them.  Triggers that originally frightened them may begin to generalize to other things and activities, which causes their world to shrink.  They usually become increasingly cautious and phobic.  Neurofeedback, specifically the alpha-theta protocol, is a training process that has been scientifically-proven to improve post traumatic stress disorder.  Alpha-theta brings on a deep calm witness state where people can often observe or think about their dislodged memories in a safe dream-like state.  With alpha-theta, clients train their brain to let go of negative response patterns that are based on old or false beliefs so they can enjoy life with a new and healthier perspective. In addition, the brain becomes receptive to complementary psychological therapies that might otherwise have created avoidant or defensive reactions.

Our courses are designed to be hands-on, interactive, and educational.  Upon completion of this course you will: 

  • Have the ability and knowledge to run your own neurofeedback sessions on your clients
  • Learn about and use the alpha-theta protocol and its use in treatment of PTSD
  • Help reduce client resistance to therapy
  • Understand how and where to market neurofeedback
  • Be able to help your clients feel more connected, have more inner peace, and have less fear undertaking new endeavors
  • Accelerate client progress
  • Enable your clients to begin to live the life they want to lead

Introduction to neurofeedback and treating addiction

Course Description:

Our Addiction Course is designed to examine neurofeedback and its application in addiction treatment. Neurotherapy is a powerful adjunct to other effective structured programs for addictions, eating disorders, smoking cessation, abusive relationships, character disorders, and issues related to one’s discipline for or resistance to change. Many leading alcohol and substance abuse treatment centers now utilize neurofeedback services that can help underlying issues and do not just focus solely on addiction recovery. These underlying issues can often become obstacles to addiction recovery. Help in healing these underlying issues frees the newly abstinent to be more present for the drug rehab program and significantly increase their average length of stay. This also applies to other addiction recovery programs other than drug dependence such as eating disorder treatment, gambling addiction, computer addiction, sex addiction, shopping addiction, compulsive behaviors, pain medication addiction and alcoholism.

Our courses are designed to be hands-on, interactive and educational.  Upon completion of this course you will:

  • Have the ability and knowledge to run your own neurofeedback sessions on your clients
  • Learn the protocols proven effective in the large UCLA Addiction Study
  • Help reduce client resistance to therapy
  • Understand how and where to market neurofeedback
  • Improve client retention (short and long term)
  • Improve abstinence rates
  • Improve aftercare compliance
  • Enable your clients to begin to live the life they want to lead
