Keynote Speaker

Bill Scott from BrainPaint! - Alpha Theta Methods and Mechanisms

This presentation will cover what we've learned over the past 20 years in research and practice. Recipients will learn how to get the best results with the least number of sessions and pre alpha theta preparation. Bill Scott will share a 3 session preparation method that replaces the need for hand-warming and other peripheral biofeedback methods. He'll give clear guidelines when to prioritize this training and for which client issues. He will also review the latest research on the mechanisms of change, which explains why this method is such an important adjunct to addiction and PTSD treatment.
