The curriculum for the neurofeedback program is based on the certification guidelines of the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (bcia.org) and includes both didactic course work and practicum experience. The introduction course covers the BCIA “blueprint of knowledge” components and also introduces students to hands on experience of doing neurofeedback. Additional practicums through the Sarabia Family Counseling Center on the Downtown Campus provide opportunities to complete the required hours of clinical practice. Practicum experience can be incorporated into counseling internship courses.
Additional advanced courses cover more sophisticated forms of neurotherapy, such as Quantitative EEG (QEEG), QEEG-guided NFB, Z-score NFB, Z-score LORETA NFB, Slow Cortical Potential (SCP) training, and the use of Event Related Potentials (ERP) in assessment. In addition, training incorporates various modalities of biofeedback into neurotherapy, such as skin temperature, skin conductance, respiration, heart-rate variability, electromyogram (EMG), etc.
Ongoing research on anxiety and PTSA utilize QEEG-based assessments and protocols.
APEd is the educational program founded by Dr. Cynthia Kerson (former director of Brain Science International Education Program). This program provides coursework that follows the tradition of BSI in providing excellent, unbiased education opportunities for biofeedback, neurofeedback, and QEEG candidates as well as seasoned practitioners who seek certification. Our world-class instructors have lectured, trained and taught internationally for over 30 years.
