Presented By: Thomas Brownback

And Introducing Christen Stahl

Essential workshop for those who want to gain an in-depth understanding of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and combining this knowledge with the Comprehensive Neurodiagnostic Checklist (CNC-1020) and psychoeducational test battery to provide a detailed interpretation of QEEGs. This information is used to create fully customized training protocols with and without Live Z-scores. Lots of hands-on demonstrations.

PLUS: successful business tips from a 20-year neurofeedback practice! Presented by Thomas Brownback, Lic. Psychologist, QEEG-D, BCN
30-34 CE Credit Hours

5 BCIA Mentoring Hours (A $600 Value) at no additional cost!

  • BrainMaster Affiliates receive an additional $50 Discount.
  • One FREE use of the CNC 10-20 and the CTC 10-20
  • FREE 4 BMANS set-up files
  • FREE copy client form for use with insurance companies to receive the highest level of reimbursement

Our ability to interpret QEEG maps for treatment planning and monitoring is dependent upon working knowledge of key brain structures and their likely information processing pathways. Good clinicians do not depend solely upon cookbook pairings of symptoms to set protocols. Master clinicians can reason from “first principles” and match QEEG data with key brain functions (attention, memory etc.) and networks that drive healthy operations, and break down in stereotypic ways in pathology. For many years now, Tom Brownback and his team have been providing an ever-expanding manual series and teaching system that enables clinicians to internalize the neurophysiological and EEG knowledge needed to become successful and resourceful neurofeedback practitioners. Brownback’s work in this context, in my 20-plus year experience, is unmatched. Highly recommended.

The Brownback workshop elevated my neurofeedback abilities to a new level. The workshop is so much more than simply information about neurofeedback. Tom and Linda Brownback have woven decades of successful neurofeedback experience into a systematic neurofeedback philosophy. Their workshop covers this approach from start to finish; from intake assessment to QEEG map analysis to treatment planning and management. Under Tom’s instruction, I learned comprehensive brain function by tracking the synchronized electrical relationships between neuroanatomical structures that communicate to form the functional pathways behind cognitive processing. This was put directly into context by subsequent discussion of neuropathologies; such as ADD, anxiety, depression, or OCD; that arise from a deregulated, disorganized EEG. The Brownbacks have dedicated countless hours to developing valuable neurofeedback tools and manuals. Personally experiencing their BMANS questionnaire The Comprehensive Neurodiagnostic Checklist (CNC1020) exemplified its use as a powerful asset for pre-neurofeedback assessment and seeing examples of their BMANS questionnaire The Computerized Tracking Checklist (CTC1020) demonstrated a wonderful ongoing assessment of patient behavior over the course of a neurofeedback regimen.

Instead of analyzing individual puzzle pieces and discussing how they could fit together theoretically, Tom and Linda Brownback demonstrated how to put the entire puzzle together. I left with a new understanding of the brain’s inner mechanisms, and I have used this knowledge each day since returning from the workshop. This knowledge grants me further insight when analyzing QEEG maps, especially 3D sLORETA images as seen in BrainMaster’s Brain Avatar and the Brain Dx Report Generator. I am able to look at my patients with a heightened understanding of how their deviant EEG patterns influence their behavior; and perhaps more importantly, how self-regulation through neurofeedback can break that cycle and help them change their life.
