Brain-based assessment and treatment alternatives for the 21st century AKA QEEG Certification Course

QEEG Didactic Certification Course

The next evolution in neurofeedback is QEEG!

June 17 – 19 & July 9 – 10 & July 30 – 31

Virtual Workshop

36 QEEG CERTIFICATION HOURS!

For all experience levels : Beginner to Advanced!

This workshop, which is uniquely taught by five qEEG diplomates with diverse backgrounds, provides not only an opportunity to fulfill the qEEG Certification Board requirements, but also provides a broad and up-to-date exposure to the current state of qEEG and neurofeedback. Attendees who are seeking qEEG Board certification, as well as those who have experience in qEEG and neurofeedback will find this a comprehensive and engaging workshop that by definition will include essential material to ensure a solid grasp of current qEEG concepts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Know the best subject inclusion and exclusion criteria for building a database.
  • Understand fundamental statistical consideration within databases.
  • Have knowledge about t-tests, alpha and p levels, correlational relationships, and z-scores.
  • Understand developmental changes in the EEG.
  • Understand the origins of the EEG.
  • Know what EEG signatures should be referred out to other professionals.
  • Be knowledgeable about Brodmann area functions and network connections.
  • Have an understanding of LORETA interpretation and training.
  • Be knowledgeable about general cognitive and clinical changes that take effect after neurofeedback training based upon publications.
  • Understand how clinical presentation may affect the EEG.
  • Explain sources in the brain from which various frequency bands normally emanate, and their physiological basis.
  • Explain how t-tests, alpha and P levels, correlational relationships, and z-score measures are used in qEEG and in neurofeedback.
  • Explain what defines the various montages and the circumstances of their use.
  • Describe how LORETA and sLORETA-based interpretation and training provide unique capabilities compared to surface metrics.
  • Have a working knowledge of the montages, transforms and power displays along with the specific perspectives they can provide a reader of qEEG output.
  • Understand phase and coherence, how they relate and what they can mean in the interpretation of the qEEG.
