What we know

A Growing Body of Evidence

While mainstream medicine has yet to fully embrace neurofeedback as a first-line therapy, there is a mounting body of evidence to support what NFB practitioners have known for years—that neurofeedback can produce long-lasting, transformative results for clients with a variety of conditions.

The Problem

How to Separate the Fact From the Misinformation

Unfortunately, the fact that neurofeedback is an unregulated industry means there's no standardization across modalities or practitioners, and conflicting information is rife.

  • Some claim it's complete fiction, with practitioners being misguided at best or charlatans at worst.
  • Some claim it's no better than a placebo, even if it gets results that clients have struggled to achieve before.
  • Some claim it can be an effective standalone option and can be effective in conjunction with other therapies
  • Some claim that the cures are quick and easy, they overstate what neurofeedback and neurofeedback practitioners can do

The truth is somewhere in the middle, but with few reliable sources, the field can be daunting for clients and practitioners.

The Challenge

Finding Reliable Information

Before you explore neurofeedback for yourself, your family, or your clients, you want to know:

  1. Does it really work and does it have scientific backing?
  2. What results can you expect from neurotherapy?
  3. How safe is it and are there are any side effects?
  4. What's involved in the sessions themselves?
  5. When can you expect to see results?
  6. How do you find a reputable practitioner?
  7. Where should you start as a new practitioner?
  8. How do I know which type of neurofeedback is best for me?

This course will answer these foundational questions and more, so you can make informed decisions about any future therapy or professional investment.

Meet Your Instructor

Hi, I'm Dr. Moshe Perl

Following a lifelong love of maths and science, I graduated with a degree in Physics from the University of Tel-Aviv in 1979. But, after realizing that I wanted more from life than working in a lab, I retrained as a psychologist at The University of North Texas in Denton, and soon began working in schools, correctional facilities, psychiatric wards, and in private practice seeing children with attention issues.

A pivotal moment in my practice came when a colleague claimed that one can work productively with children who suffer from ADHD, without using medication. Though I was initially extremely sceptical, I decided to travel to Sydney to learn more about neurofeedback, and what I saw changed the trajectory of my career. I saw for myself that neurofeedback was achieving profound, long-lasting results without the need for medication and I was excited.

Well placed to apply my analytical mind in a field that was both technological, scientific and therapeutic, I began a 20-year career as a neurofeedback practitioner and educator, helping thousands of clients and mentoring hundreds of clinicians across the world. I’ve studied with many of the world-leading experts in neurofeedback and QEEG/EEG analysis, and have now become a recognised leader in the industry myself.

Now, my aim is to pull back the curtain and share the science of neurofeedback in a truly accessible way, to ensure that the kind of healthy scepticism I, myself, had 20 years ago, doesn’t prevent any prospective client from experiencing the truly transformative results that neurofeedback can offer.

About David Perl

David worked as a consulting engineer before joining the family business. Since he began working with Moshe, David has had a strong desire to share Moshe’s expertise widely with the world. He could see the immense value of this unique practical knowledge and how the most effective way to share it was via online learning.

So over the past few years he has been focused building a body of online courses for professionals, courses which he feels are worthy of being standard curriculum for every neurofeedback professional who has already entered the field.

Additionally, over his time in this role, David has had hundreds of conversations with those who are new to the field. People who were interested in neurofeedback for themselves, for their loved ones or for their clients. In these conversations he often spoke for a very long time to ensure that they were well-placed to make the best choice for themselves. After having similar conversations over and over again a desire grew to create a resource for anybody curious about neurofeedback to have high quality information, delivered in an accessible, easily digestible way that helps them make the best choice for themselves. Even if that choice is to investigate further, that they will have greater context for their investigation, that they will be able to ask better questions, and more confidently discern the truth of the answers they receive.

More Information

Frequently Asked Questions

Couldn’t I just ask a practitioner for this information?

Some practitioners may be happy to take the time and might be capable to educate their clients to this level of understanding. It is not reasonable to expect that of every practitioner because their role is primarily to provide therapy, not to educate.

Should I try traditional therapies or medication first?

Every case is unique, so we cannot answer that question for all. We recommend getting informed about the different options, what is involved (e.g. three sessions per week for four months, one session per week for several years, one tablet a day forever, etc.), the costs, the likelihood of success, and the potential risks/side-effects. For some people neurofeedback is a great first choice of therapy, for some, it is a great choice along with other therapies, for others traditional therapies or medication is a better starting point.

Neurofeedback is non-invasive, very safe and very effective, and the results typically last. A good practitioner can inform potential clients the probability of desired results before they begin therapy.

It is worth noting that in some instances (e.g. for ADHD), getting an EEG measurement can help inform which medication will be most effective.

What qualifies Dr. Perl to teach on this subject?

Before becoming a psychologist, Dr. Perl completed a bachelors degree in physics. He brought a scientific scepticism and mathematical rigour to his approach to the technological therapy that is neurofeedback.

In his clinic he helped over 1,000 clients to greatly improve their lives. In his clinic, massive transformations were standard.

Additionally, he has been educating neurofeedback professionals for over 20 years – from compete beginners to experts. He has been consistently praised for making difficult concepts easy to understand.

He is very familiar with the concerns of those new to neurofeedback and with guiding them into a position where they feel comfortable and confident with it.

Does neurofeedback really work?

Yes. There is a large body of scientific and clinical support showing that. In this course we discuss what is reasonable to expect from neurofeedback.

I’m not sure about the price of the course. Is it worth it?

We certainly feel so. If within 30 days you disagree, then you can get a no-questions-asked refund.

Why doesn’t my primary physician recommend neurofeedback?

This is discussed in Chapter 9, Common Criticisms. Most of them don't know much about neurofeedback or its implications or impact. They have not been educated about it, so it's not in their toolkit. They typically won't recommend something until they understand it and they're comfortable with it, which is reasonable. More and more doctors and psychiatrists are learning about neurofeedback, implementing it in their practices or referring their clients to neurofeedback practitioners.

Does neurofeedback require stopping medication or talk therapy?

In short, no. We discuss this in more detail in Chapter 4, What Sessions are Like.

How much time will this course take?

The total watch time of the course videos is under 4 hours. You can complete the course at your own pace.

Can neurofeedback help with my specific condition?

Every case is unique, so we cannot answer that question for all.

How do I know which type of neurofeedback is best for me?

It is helpful to know about the method the prospective practitioner uses, how they assess the issues, how they decide on the intervention and how they tailor the intervention to you. The very important question to ask the practitioner is how they adjust the neurofeedback parameters on an ongoing basis. The way they answer that question tells you whether their way of working takes into account your response to the neurofeedback as the therapy progresses.
