Brain Stimulation Workshop for Health Professionals

Dave Siever, a leading researcher and developer in brain stimulation protocols and technologies for improving mental health and wellbeing, will be lecturing in beautiful Puerto Rico. This will be a two-and-a-half-day training at the Brain & Vision Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Nov 3 - 4 and half a day on the 5th, 2017. The workshops will be taught in English with no translation.

General Course Description

Dave in PR

Stimulation modalities of Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE), Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) and transcranial DC stimulation (tDCS) have been in clinical use for several decades. By the end of 2012, there were about 40 clinical studies supporting the effectiveness of AVE, roughly 200 studies supporting CES and 650 studies supporting the efficacy of tDCS. All technologies show effectiveness in treating anxiety, depression, cognitive decline and pain.

AVE affects cerebral blood flow, neurotransmitters, dissociative/meditative states and brainwave activity. AVE is easy to use and boosts cognition. Students using AVE show increased GPA, concentration, memory and reduced worry. ADD/ADHD children or adults and seniors with cognitive decline also benefit from using AVE. Other applications of AVE include deep relaxation, hypnotic induction, PMS, SAD, PTSD, migraine headache, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.

CES is a low-cost and reliable method for reducing anxiety, depression, pain, while improving sleep, and cognition. CES may also be worn in a pocket and used while going about one’s day, making it very convenient for the user.

tDCS is a form of neurostimulation that has been found to be effective in modulating spontaneous neuronal firing. An advantage of tDCS is that the cortical activity over a specific site on the brain may be enhanced or suppressed, much like neurofeedback with much greater ease and reduced risk of error than neurofeedback. tDCS has shown exceptional effectiveness in treating the effects of stroke such as aphasias and apraxia as well as sensory integration issues. All that is needed is a Brodmann Area chart and perhaps a QEEG.

Psychological maladies are the result of dysarousal of the brain from several causes. This course addresses those causes and their neurophysiological effects. This course will teach the physiological mechanisms (neurotransmitter effects, brain waves, cerebral blood flow, dissociation, and neuronal activation) by which AVE, CES and tDCS affect.

Clinicians who realize the need for additional innovative tools in their tool chest will find this course useful. This course applies to nurses, MDs, hypno-therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, massage therapists, biofeedback and neurofeedback practitioners.
