Description: This workshop is a brief introduction into the principles and theoretical foundations of Neurofeedback therapy. The workshop is addressed to both social workers and other professionals from the metal health sector. Neurofeedback is a non-invasive complementary therapy for training the self-regulating functions of the brain. With the help of specially designed non-invasive computer devices, certain parameters of brain activity are recorded, analysed and “communicated” back to the person through visual, auditory and / or tactile feedback, stimulating the self-regulation of the brain.

Main topics:

  • Introduction in the theoretical foundations of neurofeedback
  • Specificities of Infra Low Frequency (ILF) Neurofeedback
  • Current possibilities for integrating neurofeedback in social work practice.
