Adding Neurotherapy to Your Practice
BASIC NEUROTHERAPY, CLINICALQ and BRAINDRIVING
Paul G. Swingle, Ph.D., F.C.P.A, R. Psych.
Neurotherapy is rapidly evolving into a primary care option for many disorders. Problems with mood, anxiety, sleep quality, learning, cognitive processing, pain, addictions, anger management, and age related memory are all amenable to rapid assessment and treatment. The assessment procedures are simple and straight forward involving assessment of a limited number of brain sites. Treatment options other than neurofeedback have been developed to markedly accelerate neurotherapy. These complementary techniques markedly facilitate neurotherapy as a viable primary care alternative to dangerous and often ineffective pharmaceuticals.
The workshop starts with the precise ClinicalQ assessment procedure that determines treatment strategies. The ClinicalQ data base contains over 1500 clinical patients and has proven to be far more accurate as compared with data bases based on presumptively “normal” subjects. Emphasis is on Braindriving treatment procedures including review of major unconditioned stimuli required for treatment. Other treatment options including neurofeedback, AVS, CES, energy psychology methods, craniosacral manipulations, harmonic sounds, electrostimulation, and behavior therapies appropriate for a wide range of disorders are presented. Practitioners will be able to immediately apply these efficient techniques. Conditions that require full QEEG and normative data base procedures will be identified as will conditions in which the more aggressive treatments are contraindicated.
Materials provided will include detailed procedures for the rapid assessment protocol, site location forms for acupuncture meridians, and procedure sheets for energy routines. Hands-on training for some craniosacral manipulations, acustimulation and energy routines is provided. This workshop is presented in response to many requests from previous participants in shorter workshops for one full day of training in these effective neurotherapeutic techniques.
