Neurofeedback Basic Course Malmö_X

11. mai - 15. mai 2015
21762 Malmö (SE)

Contenu du cours

The seminar is thought to be in step with actual practice, offering you the necessary tools you will need for your everyday clinical practice. For this you will work in groups of two people with a system placed by us at your disposal, reversing roles as “therapist” and “patient”.

The procedure and interpretation of the training results for each participant will be discussed in small groups under supervision of experienced EEGInfo instructors.

Focus is the method developed during the last 30 years by the heads of EEG Institute, Mr. and Mrs. Othmer.

The seminar is directed towards people with therapeutic experience, who are interested in Neurofeedback and would like to learn this highly efficient approach in theory and practice.

After this course, you will be able to use Neurofeedback in your practice.
 
This symptom-based and process-oriented Neurofeedback approach aims particularly at experienced therapists. Learn from the originators of this method and the infra-low frequency training (ILF)!

The desired language for course attendance can be chosen in the submission form. The seminars will take place simultaneously in different rooms.
