Sebern Fisher

Sebern Fisher is a psychodynamic psychotherapist with a primary interest in the importance of secure attachment throughout the life span. She incorporated neurofeedback into her clinical practice in 1997. The effects of brain training that she has both experienced and witnessed have had significant impact on the way she now conceptualizes personality, self, psychopathology and even free will.
Emerging theory in all fields of psychotherapy is focused on the importance of affect regulation. After almost ten years of work with neurofeedback, Sebern has come to believe that the single most important contribution of neurofeedback is regulation of affect, and further, that the most important affect to regulate is fear. In pursuit of this, she discovered the site FPO2, “the gateway to the amygdala”, in 1999, and uses it specifically to quiet fear and reactivity. She has fully integrated neurofeedback into her practice of psychotherapy, rarely now, providing one without the other. She works with people suffering from conditions as apparently diverse as PTSD, dyslexia, dissociative disorders, Asperger’s, and attachment disorder.
Sebern was the Clinical Director of a residential treatment center for severely disturbed adolescents for fifteen years, where she implemented the first milieu DBT program in the US. She now maintains a private practice in Northampton, Massachusetts. She is an owner of EEG Spectrum International, and speaks nationally and internationally on neurofeedback, on the integration of neurofeedback and psychotherapy, and on attachment and neurofeedback.

Bill Scott

Bill Scott

Bill Scott is a co-investigator of a research project studying somatization disorders at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute with Lobsang Rapgay, Ph.D. He’s in the design process of a study investigating brain states during mindfulness meditation with Jeffery Schwartz, M.D. and Barry Sterman, Ph.D. He recently developed a new neuroimaging technology that creates a fractal signature from EEG and is successfully utilizing this technology as a form of EEG biofeedback in a process termed BrainPaint®. He is the first author and principal investigator of a controlled study on addictions (n=121) which was published in August 2005 in The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, with David Kaiser, Ph.D, Siegfried Othmer, Ph.D, and Steven Sideroff, Ph.D.

Bill was also the principal investigator and first author of an addiction research project that yielded a 79% success rate with Native American alcoholics. This study was with Dr. Eugene Peniston (in press). An interview with Bill by the Psychiatric Times was published as a feature article. Bill and David Kaiser presented research at the American Association for the Advancement of Science with Dr. David Kaiser. He trained the researchers Dr. John Gruzelier and Dr. Tobias Egner (members of Department of Cognitive Neuroscience and Behaviour, Imperial College Medical School) in the use of alpha-theta protocols. The results of this research project so improved music abilities among Royal Conservatoire of Music students that the Conservatoire adopted these protocols into the school’s curriculum.

Bill has been published in the January 2000 issue of Clinical Electroencephalography (EEG), an official journal of the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS). He contributed a chapter on alpha-theta EEG biofeedback in Jim Robbins' Book, "A Symphony in the Brain." He has presented his research and has taught workshops with Tom Brod, M.D. on anxiety disorders at three American Psychiatric Associations annual conventions.

In association with Michael Hoffman, Bill is also currently involved with the Narcotics Division of the American Embassy in South America where they are teaching their protocols to other researchers in order to quickly replicate their work in Latin America. He participated in the 4th annual Meeting of Experts on Demand Reduction for the Organization of American States.

Bill has been training EEG biofeedback practitioners since 1996 and has taught over two thousand of them at this time. He’s most passionate about evaluating and demonstrating EEG biofeedback’s effectiveness through research, refining assessment, improving protocol selection, measuring outcomes and discovering innovative ways to transfer his knowledge to practitioners and research teams. He’s been in private practice since 2000 in West Los Angeles and Malibu.

He explains "In late 1995, I began a journey of deeper spiritual exploration after a series of traumatic personal events rather close in time. My journey began with Reiki training and studying with Elizabeth Stratton, a healer and founder of the Touching Spirit Center® in Litchfield, Connecticut. Serendipitously, I also became a more serious student of Kyabje Gehlek Rimpoche of the Jewel Heart Buddhist Center in Ann Arbor, MI with whom I have studied with less consistently since the early 1990's.”
