Neurofeedback Training for Professionals

Receive Biofeedback and Neurofeedback training from a professional with years of experience using a wide variety of methods to treat a wide spectrum of disorders and conditions!

If you are starting or advancing your career in Biofeedback and/or Neurofeedback and you want to know more about the innovative technology, Dr. Diane® provides individual, in-service or professional workshops to help you decide what methods are best for the patients or clients you provide clinical services to help them regain their life or for brain fitness.

Each manufacturer has specific training sessions for their Neurofeedback equipment.  These sessions are vital so you are truly comfortable with that equipment and the protocols that are used on that equipment. The average clinician spends many hours in training to learn a specific method. Training includes positioning electrodes, learning which frequency effects specific symptoms – such as sleep issues – and how to enhance certain areas, such as increasing one’s ability to recall or helping to enhance athletic performance.

Most clinicians have learned one method, and when they have achieved a specified amount of training, they are listed as a provider for that specific method. Some clinicians have taken specific training and education to obtain a BCIA board certification. Others have their Doctorate in Neuroantomony and are trained in a specific method.

Lastly, there are a vast number of Neurofeedback providers who want customized and personalize training in a  wide variety of methods and would like to know when to use a specific protocols.

Dr. Diane® does not believe that there is one method that provides everything to every person, because she believes each person is unique and each symptom and brain related issue is just as unique as the individual.  She decides what method or approach she’ll use based on the Dr. Diane 5 Prong approach and where the patient is at physically and emotionally on the day she is treating them.

In this personalized training, you will learn the necessary flexibility that should be used  when deciding how to treat patients. You would learn specific methods and protocols so you can adapt these methods and treat your clients more effectively instead of using a cookie cutter, one size fits all method.

As an example, one of Dr. Diane®’s Neurofeedback patients asked about LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback System), because she heard it is supposed to be the most effective method of Neurofeedback, and wanted to know why Dr. Diane® wasn’t using it on her. Dr. Diane® explained it is because one method doesn’t fit all, even if two patients have the same symptoms or brain related issues. It really depends on the person and their complete background.  In this case, it was not the best fit for the patient.

Dr. Diane® provides personalized training sessions in group settings for in-service training of your staff or during an 8-hour professional workshop.

Dr. Diane® offers consultations and training for professionals at all experience levels in Neurofeedback. Training and supervision is also available for new Neurofeedback practitioners at our Boxford, Massachusetts office. Dr. Diane® offers additional training, supervision, and case reviews for the more seasoned professional via web video chat services such as Skype, or by phone.

There is clinical evidence and/or clinical reports on the effectiveness of Neurofeedback training for the following disorders seen in children and teens, as well as adults.

Dr. Diane®’s Neuroband™

Enhance the Neurofeedback experience with this innovative and easy-to-use headband! No set-up, no clean-up!

NeurofeedbackDr. Diane® has developed the Neuroband™, a Neurofeedback headband that can be used to achieve optimum Neurofeedback, Discovery 24-Channel, Z-Score training, Othmer, LENS and various Assessments: QEEG, Mini-Q and Q Assessment. This is the only headband of its type on the market. Unlike other types of headbands that do not allow for the precise placement of the electrodes, the Neuroband™ is precise! It also allows for quick set-up and a mess free experience, saving time and consumables.

Key Features of Dr Diane®’s Neuroband™ include:

It allows for ease, comfort and customizing for individuals. No need to prep the scalp or use conductive paste. Just soak the chamois and put it on the location you want. It takes one minute to put on and seconds to remove without any cleanup.

  • Ease of use: no parting the hair, no neuro-prep needed, no need for alcohol clean up
  • Comfortable to those with skin or head sensitivities
  • Applied with a saline solution rather than Neuro-paste

We have used Dr. Stoler’s Neuroband™ with great success for 6+ years. It is SOOO much faster than electrode paste and quickly gives a very low impedance connection. We use it with both gold electrodes for z-score and sintered silver electrodes for ISF training. To part the hair better under the pad once attached to the patient, we slide either a chopstick or a q-tip moistened with ElectroMist; this ensures an even better connection. The teenage guys especially prefer the Neuroband because they fear crossing the path of Miss America when they leave here with paste residue on their scalp. A scientist at the CDC in Atlanta asserted that the salinity level is so high in the electrolyte solution that no virus or bacteria would thrive. When we explain that, most patients don’t wince one bit to use the Neuroband directly after the previous person. When the rare person wants their own Neuroband and pads, they buy it and we keep it segregated in a plastic bag. We saved in time the cost of the Neuroband the very first day we used it.

No paste to put on and therefore, no paste to clean up is a major advantage to using Dr. Diane’s Neuroband™. My son has a traumatic brain injury and we do daily Neurofeedback sessions at home, as well as having done remote sessions with Dr. Diane® in the past. With similar clarity of frequency, and no clean-up required I think home and remote trainers will be very pleased with using Dr. Diane’s Neuroband.

My son has a traumatic brain injury. We are doing the Neurofeedback training with Dr. Diane at home and it is very easy with Dr. Diane’s Neuroband™. It makes the process effortless and comfortable, without the messy paste and cleanup after. And the clarity of frequency is comparable. I would highly recommend any home user doing remote training to try it. It’s a great product!

Diane, All that I can say is WOW! What a great product! I received the Neuroband™ yesterday and tried it on myself to see how it worked. I was thoroughly impressed with it for two reasons:

  1. When I do my own Neurofeedback, I noticed that the sensors tend to loosen their grip from start to finish due to my hair being so thick despite using copious amounts of the Ten20 paste. After processing, I typically need to push the sensors back into my scalp just to ensure good reading between the pre and post baseline recordings. This makes me wonder how effective any system would be when running into that type of an issue. With the Neuroband, I created the saline solution, soaked the pockets, hooked myself up and I was off to the races with no concern about losing sensor connection quality. What a dream come true!
  2. There was no post-processing clean-up which was a big concern as I’d like to work with multiple clients and was concerned about the sanitary issue and sending people out with “There’s Something About Mary” hair.

I used the Neuroband™ on my first client this morning and I noticed that his processing was much smoother also and there was no degradation between the connection status from pre to post baseline testing. I do not know how you came up with this idea but am most grateful that you did!
