Concept and Description:

Quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG) has become an important technique for psychophysiological assessment of brain-based disorders. This course covers reading and de-artifacting the EEG record, montages, database comparisons, drug effects on the EEG, frequency analysis, spectral and topographic aspects and basic neuroanatomy and physiology, based upon Brodmann areas and anatomical structures. It meets accreditation from the IQCB for the required didactic course.

Format:

This course uses remote study format. The course materials are accessed from the course web site. The lecture portion of the course is presented through a series of audiovisual lectures profusely illustrated by power-point slides. Reading assignments parallel the lectures. After watching the lecture(s) and reading the assigned supporting files, you will respond to a quiz of short essay or multiple-choice review questions. The answered questions are then emailed to the instructor. You and the instructor will discuss each unit via email chat after your answers are assessed. Once satisfactorily completed, the student may move to the next section.

Prerequisites:

None. This course meets the accreditation requirements for the didactic for certification from the IQCB.

Course Outline:

  • Editing raw EEG and artifacts (2 hours)
  • Neuroanatomy and Physiology (4 hours) (This section may be exempt if the student has already taken PEP003 EEG Biofeedback)
  • Drug Effects on the EEG (2 hours)
  • Database Analysis (4.5 hours)
  • Clinical and Cognitive Aspects (6.5 hours)
  • Ethics and Professional Conduct (2 hours) (This section may be exempt if the student has already taken PEP003 EEG Biofeedback)
  • Montages and Spectral and Topographic Aspects of the EEG (4 hours)
  • Final Project (5 hours) Observation by the instructor of a multi channel recording (these two observations can be counted towards fulfilling your mentoring hour requirements).
  • Practical Observation (6 hours) the student observes a local or remote practitioner (preferably QEEG certified) performing multi-channel EEGs.

Administrative Information

Schedule:

You can start the course whenever wish to within six months of the purchase date and work at your own pace as long as you complete the course within one year of purchase.

Duration of course validity:

You must begin the course within six months of the purchase date and complete it within one year of the purchase date. Courses not completed by that time must be repurchased if still available. No refunds are provided for courses not completed within one year of purchase. If the course is repurchased, the instructor will honor previously submitted work.

CE Credit:

These are continuing education, not university accredited, courses. The Behavioral Medicine R&T Foundation is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Behavioral Medicine R&T Foundation maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

BCIA:

This course is accepted by the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance for recertification continuing education.

 QEEGCB:

This course is accredited by the International QEEG Certification Board (IQCB) as the 36-hour didactic for certification.

Payment, Refund, Scholarship, and cancellation policies:  

Full payment for each course is required before access to the course is provided. Payment is by credit card though our web site’s secure ordering section or by check in US dollars made out to the Foundation and sent to the address below. Full refund will be made until students are given access to the course materials. After getting access to the course materials there is no refund at all as the Foundation has committed its resources to you and you have access to all of the course materials. A course would only be cancelled due to an extreme emergency on the part of the course instructor or the Foundation. In the highly unlikely event a course is cancelled, you would receive a full refund.

Scholarships: 

The Foundation gives scholarships consisting of 25% off the cost of the course(s) to (a) students and professionals (e.g. clinicians, coaches, teachers) from emerging nations and (b) full time graduate students in developed nations.

Course updates:

Updates to all courses are placed on the course web site as they are made. Students are informed when updates are available.
