AAPB MEETING INFORMATION



FMRI NF SHOWS PROMISE IN TREATING HALLUCINATIONS IN SCHOPHRENIA

Results of a study published in Translational Psychiatry show that schizophrenic subjects who experienced auditory verbal hallucinations (AVH) and who were trained to down-regulate the superior temporal gyrus with fMRI NF had significant reductions in AVH.

Join your colleagues April 12, 2018 in Orlando for
BSF's 8 CE credit Autism Spectrum Disorder workshop
at the AAPB 49th Annual Scientific Meeting

BSF will hold its mid-year CE workshop April 12, 2018 at The Caribe Royale Hotel & Conference Center in Orlando. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the AAPB 49th Annual Scienific Meeting. The BSF workshop is a separate event being held in the AAPB meeting space. AAPB will function as our co-host and support our workshop.

The BSF workshop will feature Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) expert, Robert Coben, PhD providing an in-depth exploration of the science related to a brain-based understanding of ASD, and clinically useful information about QEEG, conectivity, and network analyses for assessment, and coherence based neurofeedback treatment methods. This is an in-depth workshop for clinicians and researchers presented by an internationally renowned expert.

BSF encourages those who register for its workshop to take advantage of the opportunity to also attend the AAPB meeting, but you are not obligated to do so. AAPB will extend its member registration discount for its Annual Meeting to those wishing to attend and also registering for the BSF workshop.

NOTE: YOU MAY REGISTER AND ATTEND JUST THE BSF WORKSHOP ON THURSDAY, 4/12 - YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO REGISTER FOR THE ENTIRE AAPB MEETING!


REGISTER HERE FOR THE BSF WORKSHOP

IMPORTANT REGISTRATION NOTE: If you are interested in registering for both the BSF workshop and the AAPB Scientific Meeting together, you have the option to REGISTER HERE ON THE AAPB WEBSITE. We will receive notification of your registration for the BSF workshop. If you prefer, you may register separately for the BSF workshop on this website - you are not required to register for the AABP meeting in order to attend the BSF workshop.

Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder:
A brain-based perspective

Connectivity, network analyses,
and QEEG methods for assessment;
Coherence training and other neurofeedback
and neuromodulation approaches to treatment

Presented by
Robert Coben, PhD
Clinical Neuropsychologist
Director, Integrated Neuroscience Services

The conference will be held April 12, 2018 at The Caribe Royale Hotel & Conference Center in Orlando, Florida. The hotel is extended the AAPB meeting special discounted room rate for BSF workshop participants of $159/night (plus taxes and fees) for registrations made by March 16, 2018.

Workshop Description

This workshop will focus on an understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) from a brain based perspective. Participants will learn about ASD characteristics, epidemiology, and brain networks responsible for its many manifestations. We will discuss forms of assessment including QEEG, but specifically focused on connectivity and network analyses. This will include a focus on research but also case examples showing the application of advanced connectivity analyses. Available treatment options will be reviewed including a focus on neuromodulation and neurofeedback approaches. The workshop will highlight the utility of coherence training and its applications as an advanced neurofeedback application for ASD.

Required Supplemental Reading: Dr. Coben has provided supplemental reading for this workshop that is required for full CE credit. You may DOWNLOAD THE SUPPLEMENTAL READING HERE.

8 APA Approved CE Credits: This program is co-sponsored by the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB). When attended in its entirety, including completion of supplemental reading, the program is available for 8 continuing education credits. AAPB is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. AAPB maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Here is the WORKSHOP BROCHURE with everything you need to know about the meeting.
