This workshop will demonstrate the process of infra-slow 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. 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.
- Clinical and technical overview including live demonstrations of Infra-Slow-Fluctuation training and initial hands-on component.
- Presentation of Pre/Post QEEGs and neuropsychological tests of ISF trained clients with a variety of symptomology and self report including affective disorders, autism, PTSD, ADHD, and insomnia
Day 2 and 3
- Hands-on training. Please bring your computers and amplifiers. If you don’t own a DC coupled amplifier, please don’t let that stop you from attending. We will team you up with someone who does.
- Extensive practice in the use of the ISF software, training student clients, and setting the Optimum Frequency for training.
- The use of QEEG analysis for assessing ISF candidates, treatment response, and beginning placements.
