Ed Hamlin Teaching


"For psychotherapists seeking to help improve their clients' emotional, cognitive and behavioral functioning (and perhaps their own!) with neurofeedback, I recommend learning from Ed Hamlin. Ed is both a clinical and neuropsychologist with broad and deep experience in both fields. Perhaps even more importantly, he is an excellent teacher. His hands-on neurofeedback course are accessible, thought provoking and clinically informed. They deserve their reputation for excellence." --Sebern Fisher, author of Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain

Intro NF in a Clinical Practice

This training course presents a comprehensive approach to the clinical application of the emerging EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) modality. Intended for clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, educators, educational therapists, clinical social workers, rehabilitation specialists and academic researchers in neurophysiology and biofeedback practitioners who have little or no background or experience with neurofeedback, it is also a good refresher course for current neurofeedback practitioners. The course includes pre-course reading materials from selected professional texts. To gain the most from this course, students are encouraged to allow adequate time to become familiar with the material. A combination of didactic presentations and live session training, multiple practicums are conducted over the four days. Neurofeedback systems are provided for attendees to gain hands-on experience. Once completing of the course, attendees will have gained a clear overview of the capabilities of the EEG biofeedback process, how to evaluate clients with respect to its effective use, how to choose an appropriate EEG biofeedback protocol and implement it on computerized instrumentation, and how the process may be used in their individual practices. We recommend additional courses and clinical consultation following this introductory course.

We will review and elaborate key points of the introductory 4-day course, with an emphasis on hands-on application (bring your own system, or one can be provided). The goal of this course is to increase your confidence as a neurofeedback provider in the following areas:

  • Selecting appropriate training protocols based on the combination of client symptoms and EEG data
  • Correctly locating 10-20 sites
  • Understanding how data on the therapist screen reflects your clients' inner experiences as they train
  • Identifying when and how you should adjust protocols based on your clients' responses to training
  • Effective coaching strategies
We will also have extensive time available for Q & A so that you have a chance to ask your most pressing neurofeedback questions.

Mary Ammerman, PsyD, BCN earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. Since 2006, she has combined neurofeedback training with talk therapy in her work with clients. Mary became board certified in neurofeedback in 2012 and has been teaching the practicum section of Dr. Ed Hamlin's introductory Neurofeedback in a Clinical Practice course since 2013. She mentors beginning neurofeedback providers across the United States and Canada. The clinicians she mentors have commented on her ability to explain complicated concepts in clear and simple language, using humor and every day analogies.
