About the instructors:
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.

Susan 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.
