"For psychotherapists seeking to help improve their clients' emotional, cognitive and behavioral functioning (and perhaps their own!) with neurofeedback, I recommend learning from Ed Hamlin. Ed is both a clinical and neuropsychologist with broad and deep experience in both fields. Perhaps even more importantly, he is an excellent teacher. His hands-on neurofeedback course are accessible, thought provoking and clinically informed. They deserve their reputation for excellence."

Introductory/Required: Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice
This training course presents a comprehensive approach to the clinical application of the emerging EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) modality. Intended for clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, educators, educational therapists, clinical social workers, rehabilitation specialists and academic researchers in neurophysiology and biofeedback practitioners who have little or no background or experience with neurofeedback, it is also a good refresher course for current neurofeedback practitioners.
The course includes pre-course reading materials from selected professional texts. To gain most from the course, students are encouraged to allow adequate time to become familiar with the material. A combination of didactic presentations and live session training, multiple practicums are conducted over the four days. Neurofeedback systems are provided for attendees to gain hands-on experience.
Completing of the course, attendees will have gained a clear overview of the capabilities of the EEG biofeedback process, how to evaluate clients with respect to its effective use, how to choose an appropriate EEG biofeedback protocol and implement it on computerized instrumentation, and how the process may be used in their individual practices. We recommend additional courses and clinical consultation following this introductory course.

We will review and elaborate key points of the introductory 4-day course, with an emphasis on hands-on application (bring your own system, or one can be provided). The goal of this course is to increase your confidence as a neurofeedback provider in the following areas:
- Selecting appropriate training protocols based on the combination of client symptoms and EEG data
- Correctly locating 10-20 sites
- Understanding how data on the therapist screen reflects your clients' inner experiences as they train
- Identifying when and how you should adjust protocols based on your clients' responses to training
- Effective coaching strategies
Mary Ammerman, PsyD, BCN earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. Since 2006, she has combined neurofeedback training with talk therapy in her work with clients. Mary became board certified in neurofeedback in 2012 and has been teaching the practicum section of Dr. Ed Hamlin's introductory Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice course since 2013. She mentors beginning neurofeedback providers across the United States and Canada. The clinicians she mentors have commented on her ability to explain complicated concepts in clear and simple language, using humor and every day analogies.

The Complexities in Neurofeedback for Complex Trauma - Nov 2-3, 2018 in Hadley, MA
taught by Sebern Fisher, MA, LMH, BCN
This seminar is designed to address the learning needs of each participant as they relate to working with developmental trauma and its long and chaotic aftermath. In the last year there have been two very important studies published on neurofeedback and trauma. We will review the latest breakthroughs in the neuroscience of trauma and how they apply to the development of neurofeedback protocols. We'll go over protocols that have proven helpful to most patients with these histories and what to consider when they're not. We'll discuss the complex nature of trauma in the brain, mind and sense of identity and how to understand and engage with the fields that trauma creates in our patients and in us. We'll discuss the pragmatic issues in the integration of brain and mind approaches (behavioral, dynamic, experiential or analytic) but perhaps, even more importantly, we will grapple with the meaning of the changes we see. We will talk about all of this using case examples that the seminar leader and participants bring.
Level 1 - Intermediate Skills
Ed Hamlin, PhD, BCN
The purpose of the Level 1 Intermediate neurofeedback course is to strengthen and build upon material covered in introductory Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice Course.
Questions always arise after beginning to use the equipment and train clients. This course is intended as a response to those questions and to introduce the next level of skills. Course format will be a combination of didactic and hands-on training. The last day will be to permit specific case review for your clients or setting. We will be using primarily the EEGer4 software and equipment for demonstration purposes, but the material can be applied to other forms of Beta/SMR or Alpha training. You are encouraged to bring your own computer for access to client material. The group will be limited to maximize individual contact and to be better able to address specific questions.
