This class provides 6 hours of real-time, online instruction on the use of neurofeedback in the treatment of tinnitus. Due to the complexity, the class examines tinnitus as a neuroplasticity disorder with differing and diverse etiologies. Tinnitus is not a single disorder. Rather, it can be a common outcome of damage to the auditory system due to loud noise, a symptom in disorders such as depression or anxiety, or it can be part of a larger problem, such as traumatic brain injury. Objectives of the course include a foundational review of tinnitus, common treatments, on-going research, neuroanatomical concepts that apply to the condition, the assessment and treatment intervention. Equipment setup and examples of recorded session using the BFE's Tinnitus Suite will be given in order to better understand the use of neurofeedback with Tinnitus.
Much of the content of the class is based on the published work of Dirk DeRidder, Winifred Schlee, Nathan Weiss, Kaitlyn Dorhman and her research group in Universität Konstanz, and others. This class is well suited for intermediate or experienced neurofeedback practitioners that want to use Dr. Dohrmann's methods, or modified versions of it, in their practice.
Attendees are not required to currently own or use the BFE's Neurofeedback for Tinnitus Suite in order to benefit from the content of this class.
