Key West EEG '96
4th Annual International  
Brain-Mind- EEG Biofeedback, Applied Neurophysiology 
Meeting, Colloquium, Spa, organized by Rob Kall
40+ speakers
February 9-13, 1996
Foundations Course (with Joel Lubar, Siegfried Othmer and Nancy White) Feb 8th
Register early and save.

"The premier meeting in the entire area of EEG biofeedback, and an
outstanding opportunity for in-depth interaction with the experts
 in the field."
    Joel Lubar, EEG pioneer, AAPB president Elect

Meet and hear outstanding speakers on the science of brain and EEG. Lots of 
smarts. Lots of talk, warm folks and warm weather. An exciting place to be."
Joe Kamiya, EEG feedback pioneer, past Biofeedback Society of America President

"..the best meeting in Neurofeedback I've yet attended." 
    Peter Rosenfeld ,   Past Pres AAPB

"It was exciting and fun for me." 
    Michael Hutchison, Author Megabrain Zones

"Where the old guard and the new guard meet. I wouldn't miss it."
	Tom Allen, co-founding sysop, Compuserve Mind/Body Sciences Forum, 
			Neurofeedback trainer

"The Key West Conference is quite simply the premier event in the world of EEG. 
 Where else can you talk with the leading clinicians, researcher and 
theoreticians in an atmosphere of shared respect and openness?  This is where 
you can find out the latest advances directly from the people who are making 
them, and enjoy the beach too -- if you can find the time!
Valdeane Brown, Clinical Psychologist, Neurofeedback Trainer

	Last year, our third seminar/meeting on Advanced EEG biofeedback
 topics was a phenomenal, quantum success. It exceeded past seminars in rave
 reviews. People called it the best EEG meeting, incredible, a wealth of 
information.., a wonderful collection of superlatives.  Last year we had to
book overflow last minute attendees in other hotels. This year, the limited 
conference space could force us to close registrations early. So sign up now
 to assure yourself a seat at the most exciting EEG meeting in history. 
	The first day is optional, with  6 hours of foundations in EEG. The
 next five days (over 36 hours) cover advanced topics-- the new ideas our 
presenters are just exploring, uncovering, or excited about. Our main goal is 
to go far beyond all the entry level seminars to create a stimulating advanced
 applications and integrated models environment for learning, discussion, 
networking and advancing this rapidly evolving powerful clinical field. 

 The 1996 meeting promises to be the best one ever.  We've had three years to
 figure out what makes for a fantastic meeting and the experience combined 
with growth in the field is adding up to something very special. 
	We will have a  record number of  speakers.

-Meeting: Latin American Biofeedback Assoc.  day & time to be announced

 As in the past, I expect our evening (sometimes turning into late night) panel discussions to be hilights of the meeting. One panel will be on integrating spirit and technology (Anna Wise, Richard WIlliams, Val Browne, Rob Kall, Pat Norris and more) ANother will be on instrumentation-- with Hal Meyers, Jan Hoover, Frank Deits, David Joffe, Geoffrey Blundell.

As always, the earlier you register the more you save on registration. 
The goal: 1)to bring together many of the leaders in the field to share and cross fertilize ideas 
2)to offer a meeting with content that goes beyond the basics, exploring applications, techniques, questions, challenges and concepts that are not ordinarily addressed in the foundations courses commonly sponsored.
3)to hold the meeting in a tropical, fun place where we also have time to relax with stimulating company. The colloquium is scheduled so no advnaced sessions are scheduled in the afternoon (morning and eveinging lectures.
. Topics include: Assessment and treatment of: A.D.D.,  Brain Mapping, Alcoholism, Addictions, Closed Head Injury, PTSD, synchrony training, immune function, pain management,  Depression, Anxiety, Tourettes Syndrome, Epilepsy, Stroke Rehab,   group EEG, Enhanced Performance and Attention. Why EEG biofeedback works. Case histories, Consciousness, Photic Brainwave Entrainment, light therapy, subliminal treatment procedures, Neurobiological models, training approaches and techniques, practice management strategies,, New Research findings, Reference databases, Psychoneurotherapy, integrating into a psychotherapy practice.	

"This is one of the best, most exciting workshops I have ever attended. 
The six days here were jam packed with information." D. L Ph.D.  psychologist

"...a true gathering of the tribe. Anyone with a sincere interest in EEG 
neurotherapy can get valuable information at this meeting."

".. excellent information/inspiration-- a delightful Key West Serendipity.
 "The in-depth presentations and willing- ness to share of the presenters is 
out- standing."  Pat Norris past AAPB pres

"Best Conference for leaders, innovators."
Angelo Bolea, Psychologist

"Key West was the best meeting in Neurofeedback I've yet attended." 
Peter Rosenfeld , NW Univ.,  Researcher, Past Pres Biofeedback Society of America

"The workshops allowed a  communication  forum for clinicians and 
researchers to get together and share what's going on in EEG training. 
This was done in a friendly environment (warm climate too) in which 
information that was given encouraged us in the field to assist in future 

-It was really special and exciting : very rich, very diverse and extremely 
educational. Your organization was superb. THe content of subjects was very 
enriching and enlightening; the atmosphere was beautiful. 
Strengths: Calibre of speakers, and the open discussion in sessions & in the
- corridor about the whole human and spiritual aspect of EEG. Bottom Line: 
Illuminating, Fascinating-- Wonderful experience. Well Done.
