Informative Book Reduces Fear and Educates Those Who Are to Receive a Brain Map (QEEG) or First Neurofeedback Session
Rob’s book, “A Consumer’s Guide to Understanding QEEG Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback Training” is written in an easy to understand and informative manner that will be a valuable asset to the client or patient. I appreciate the attention to detail and the accurate descriptions of the two processes discussed; brain mapping (QEEG) and neurofeedback. Many clients/patients have a level of trepidation when about to undergo a new procedure and this guide will go a long way to allay their concerns. In fact, I like the book so well, I am considering using it with each new patient who starts a neurofeedback program at Michigan Brain Health. Thank you again, Rob, for writing and publishing such an important and much-needed book for the consumer.
