The School of Neurotherapy “Reloaded” 2.0 BootCamp Training
in Santa Barbara, California at the NeuroField Neurotherapy Clinic
by Nicholas Dogris, PhD, QEEG-D, BCN
& Tiff Thompson, PhD, QEEG-D, BCN, MFT
November 6-10, 2023
(32.5 CE Credits Available )
(Available Online & In-Person)
The School of Neurotherapy 2.0 5-day Bootcamp is more than just a refresher for clinicians who have taken the Basic training in the past. This seminar is designed to get clinicians and technicians up to speed on the use of noise (pink/ brown/white) in the clinical application of stimulation, using photobiomodulation, and creating your own customized protocols for your clients. In addition, this deep dive takes you beyond simple EEG and QEEG analysis into the advanced techniques of Independent Components Analysis and Event-Related Potential testing in our EEG and ERP software, for a higher level of applied computational neuroscience.
Designed with clinicians of all levels in mind, this course will teach you multiple techniques and procedures through didactic lectures and hands-on training.
Dr. Nicholas Dogris and Dr. Tiff Thompson will teach you advanced neurostimulation, analysis, and neurofeedback procedures from the ground up. This intensive experience will challenge you and help you advance your knowledge in the field of neuromodulation and neurostimulation.
We will begin the training by teaching you how to use the EEG software platform, including raw analysis and the generation of quantitative data in the form of power analyses and Independent Components Analysis. This process is the first step in the decision tree of how to treat the condition at hand.
This Bootcamp combines a series of forms of neuromodulation: Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field stimulation (pEMF), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), transcranial alternating current stimulation(tACS), Pink Noise and Brown Noise, as well as transcranial random noise stimulation stimulation (tRNS) modalities.
This program, when attended in its entirety, is available for 32.5 continuing education credits.
LEVEL: Introductory — TFor those psychologists using the modality of biofeedback and interested in efficacy, science, and latest clinical applications. This conference presents research relevant to psychological practice, education, and science; (2) it is our intention to host an offering to help psychologists to keep up with the most current scientific evidence regarding assessment, intervention, and education; and (3) we believe that this program would allow psychologists to increase competencies to improve services to patients. This conference is IN NO WAY a substitute for the basic academic education and training needed for entry into the field of psychology.

Psychologists: The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback maintains responsibility for the program and its content.
There is no known commercial support for this program.
The Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists. AAPB will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of program participants. The monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards will be the responsibility of the Education Chair in consultation with the members of the continuing education committee, the AAPB Ethics Chairperson, Continuing Education (CE) Committee Chairperson, Program Planning Committee Chairperson, and/or the Conference Chairperson. While AAPB goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which come to the attention of the convention staff which require intervention and/or action on the part of the convention staff or an officer of AAPB. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances. 1. When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken. If the person toward whom the grievance is directed is also the instructor or a chair of any of the above-mentioned committees, the AAPB Board of Directors will appoint a Board representative to oversee the resolution of any of the participant complaints, in an effort to avoid any and all conflicts of interest. If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The CE Chair will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual. 2. If the grievance concerns a workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the convention chair will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the convention chair will: a) attempt to move the participant to another workshop or b) provide a credit for a subsequent year’s workshop or c) provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee. Actions 2b and 2c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the grieved individual. 3. If the grievance concerns an AAPB CE program, in a specific regard, the CE Chair will attempt to arbitrate.
