QEEG, Live Z-Score, sLORETA Live, BrainAvatar, BrainDx, and More Using (Discovery 24E) 19 Channels Reviewed

August 11–16, 2015

Cleveland, Ohio (Click here for hotel information)


For all experience levels : Beginner to Advanced!

Whether you’re about to dive into the exciting world of QEEG and brain mapping or trying to enhance existing skills with database-guided neurofeedback, this 4-day workshop will unlock the mysteries of how morphology of RAW EEG converts into color-coded normative brain maps that provide clinically relevant insights. Our team of highly qualified and experienced instructors will cover everything from the basics of how databases are developed to the subtle skill set needed to identify and address underlying neuronal dysregulation.

Significant time will be allotted for hands-on practice with the established equipment and designs, as well as introducing cutting edge approaches that are demonstrating promising results. The brilliant combination of normative databases with BrainMaster’s Mini-Q and Discovery 24E adds a dimension that allows the practitioner to observe and train brain activity monitored at up to 19 channels (LZT ZOK, Z PLUS, PZ Motive, PZ Mean, including Z Bars, BrainAvatar, and Live Topographic Mapping) using the innovative live Z-Score methods (PZOK). Practitioners from all levels of experience will walk away from this workshop with a richer understanding of how to use QEEG brain mapping and analysis to increase clinical efficacy.

Attendees who desire certification must pay an additional $100 CEU processing fee to StressTherapy Solutions, Inc.

This workshop includes 3 QEEG Diplomate Instructors.
Cost of $895 has been held until May 20th.
$995 is now the fee for this workshop.

9:00 AM to 5:00 PM – Beginner/Early Intermediate Users of QEEG, Surface Live Z-Score, sLORETA Live Z-Score, BrainAvatar, and Neurofeedback

Penijean will work with all beginner/early intermediate users of QEEG in reviewing basics of saving and organizing EEG files, the importance of databases in relation to EEG, the discussion of quantitative analysis metrics and methods, the creation of useful data for clinicians, and navigating through BrainMaster BrainAvatar screens. She will introduce importing EEG files into normative database software, artifacting data, creating brain maps and images, techniques for organizing clinical information, and initial principles for understanding brain maps in a clinical setting.

Attendees will also review how to use both an introductory surface live Z-score training protocol and an sLORETA Z-score training protocol, with practical application guidelines for protocol selection relative to qEEG findings and clinical interview.

9:00 AM to 5:00 PM – Intermediate/Advanced Users of QEEG, Live Z-Score, BrainAvatar, BrainDx, and Neurofeedback

Smith will work with intermediate and advanced users of QEEG, sLORETA, and 4 and 19 channel Z-score training. Learn to use BrainDx for generating convergent protocols from data through mapping of patient complaints to location. QEEG tools including BrainAvatar’s mapping capability, BrainDx, the live LORETA projector, the Key Institute’s LORETA viewer, will be utilized in identifying abnormal activation and disturbances within neural networks. Attendees will analyze current sources and identify coherence and phase relationships that will aid in clinical decision-making. We will also review handout materials on functional networks or clusters, which is collectively referred to as Hub Analysis. In addition, the Default Mode Network will be the focus of a review that includes the groundbreaking research on Psilocybin and the integrity of the self. The latter has proven seminal in the development of sLORETA training for a range of issues (including personality and affective disorders). This portion of the workshop will include training with the BrainMaster Atlantis but will also emphasize training on the Discovery. Beginner/intermediate sLORETA training using BrainMaster’s BrainAvatar software will also be demonstrated. New protocols available.
