Recent equipment and software advancements, specifically the Discovery and Avatar software, have allowed for 2, 4, or 19 channel recording and Infraslow Fluctuation (ISF) training. With this innovation we can now simultaneously render this signal in a bipolar and referential montage. This improvement makes for a safe, effective, and data rich method of slow wave training.
This beginners workshop will demonstrate the process of Infraslow Fluctuation training in clinical practice. The method pivots on the determination of an optimum frequency (OF) that is trained for each individual client. In the didactic portion of the workshop, the OF determination process will be demonstrated along with a discussion of the equipment and optimal signal processing requirements necessary to accomplish effective training. The value of QEEG in predicting treatment responders, treatment planning, and determining treatment outcomes will be established.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Friday’s class is for novices and is geared toward the fundamental principles and applied aspects of ISF training which will include practical demonstrations of ISF training. Saturday and Sunday will feature both education and hands-on experience with the equipment and software. The practicum portion of the course will span two days for all practitioners to have several opportunities for hands on training in the optimization process, in evaluating outcomes, and in adjusting treatment accordingly. The emphasis on the workshop practicum will provide students with the necessary tools to integrate ISF training in clinical practice.
Day 1 | Friday | 9:00am – 6:00 pm
Clinical and technical overview including live demonstrations of Infraslow Fluctuation training and initial hands-on component.
Days 2 & 3 | Saturday 9:00am to 5:00pm | Sunday 9:00am – 4:00pm
1.) Hands on training. Please bring your computers and amplifiers. If you don’t own a BrainMaster DC coupled amplifier, please don’t let that stop you from attending. We will team you up with someone who does.
2.) Extensive practice in the use of the ISF software, training student clients, and setting the Optimum Frequency for training.
3.) The use of QEEG analysis for evaluating ISF candidates, treatment response, and beginning placements.
4.) Presentation of Pre/Post QEEGs and neuropsychological tests of ISF trained clients with a variety of presentations including affective disorders, autism, PTSD, ADHD, and insomnia

* Please note that all attendees must be licensed health, mental health, or wellness practitioners, or Masters Level education specialists or must be working under the direct supervision of a licensed provider.
* A software License is required for ISF training in the Avatar software. The fee is $150.00 and can be obtained by contacting Neurofeedback Services of NY.
* Attendees do not need to have a Discovery, an Atlantis, the Avatar software, or an ISF License to attend. There will be enough equipment and software available for all attendees to use in the workshop. However for the best learning experience both during and immediately after the workshop it is recommended that attendees obtain either the Atlantis Two by Two, Atlantis Four by Four, or the Discovery, and the Avatar Software with an ISF License.
