Advanced Course in Neurofeedback
format with update on theory and mechanisms, and more clinical discussion
The evolving theory, mechanisms and clinical applications of neurofeedback
Day 2: Clinical discussion
Siegfried Othmer, Ph.D., BCIAC, Chief Scientist, The Brian Othmer
Foundation / EEG Institute, Founder of EEG Spectrum and Susan Othmer,
BCIAC, Clinical Director, EEG Institute
An intensive two-day inter-active workshop targeting enhanced clinical
skills within an over-arching framework; better integration of assessment
with training; consolidation of perspectives on neurofeedback; projection
of future developments. Discuss difficult cases and questions about EEGs,
assessment, training, instrumentation and practice management. Share your
clinical insights and experience with other neurofeedback practitioners.
Update your clinical skills and improve your clinical outcomes.
o Mechanisms of neuro-regulation in the Bio-electrical domain
o Implications for neurofeedback approaches
o Integrating multiple neurofeedback perspectives
o Understanding and applying assessment data
o New EEG training approaches
o How to optimize your clinical results

Siegfried Othmer, Ph.D., is one of the pioneers of the field of
neurofeedback. As a physicist active in aerospace his attention was drawn
to neurofeedback through his son's intractable epilepsy. The year was
1985. This opened the door to a remarkable development in which
neurofeedback was found to be helpful across a broad range of conditions
of interest to the mental health professional.
Along with his wife Susan, Siegfried Othmer established EEG Spectrum as a
service delivery organization for neurofeedback in 1988, and they have
just recently established the Brian Othmer Foundation in memory of their
son to promote research, education and clinical services in neurofeedback.
Othmer is a leader in the clinical application of neurofeedback since
1988. She has introduced thousands of professionals to the field of
neurofeedback. She continues her clinical work and development of new
assessment and training approaches as Clinical Director of the EEG
Institute in California.
EEG Institute is approved by the American Psychological Association to
offer continuing education for psychologists. EEG Institute maintains
responsibility for the program.
