The Hummingbird Centre is pleased to partner with EEG Learn, the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS) and the Australian Neurofeedback Institute to present this 8-week online course with Dr Mary Ammerman.
In this course you will:
- Learn 4 common EEG patterns associated with over and under arousal;
- Get tips on electrode placement, good impedance, and proper placement of 10-20 sites;
- Begin to understand what the EEG reveals, in terms of the client's internal experience, and learn to assess client progress from it;
- Get clear on the process of training your client: the conversation about what is neurofeedback, setting realistic client goals, assessing symptoms, evaluating progress, and making changes to protocols.
