Apr 27, 2018 11:00am ‐ Apr 27, 2018 12:00pm

Description

The integration of neuroscience techniques and principles has garnered a great deal of attention in the practice of mental health counseling. This session will provide an introduction to the use of neurofeedback in clinical practice. Attendees will be guided through a step-by-step process for integrating neurofeedback into their practice and will learn what equipment is needed and how to save costs while adopting this methodology in clinical practice.

The last decade has seen exponential growth in the field of neuroscience and its relationship to the practice of mental health counseling. Counselors have gradually become more interested in how knowledge and concepts from the field of neuroscience can be applied to their own clinical practice and research. Neurofeedback is congruent with the practice of counseling in that it is wellness focused and strengths-based. The goal of neurofeedback is to train brainwaves so they are just right for each individual client. Neurofeedback can alter the brain’s organization and counseling can assist with more adaptive meaning making, thus fostering resilience.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will be introduced to the basic principles and methodology of neurofeedback and its use in clinical practice.
  • Attendees will learn and discuss the types of clients, settings and symptoms most receptive to this methodology of treatment.
  • The idea of incorporating neurofeedback into clinical practice can be quite daunting. Attendees will be guided through a step by step process of how to integrate neurofeedback into their practice, what equipment is needed and how to save costs while adopting this methodology in clinical practice.

Speaker(s):

  • Eraina Schauss, PhD, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, University of Memphis
