Protocol Guide available in 7th edition

20. April 2020

The Protocol Guide by Susan F. Othmer has been the indispensable standard work for all those who (want to) work with Neurofeedback according to Othmer.

The now current 7th edition contains clinical knowledge about the new extended ILF HD range, revised symptom profiles and the new ILF synchrony training.

ILF Neurofeedback, alpha-theta and synchrony training are explained in a clear and understandable way on the basis of theoretical principles of diagnosis and symptom profiles.

Readers will learn clearly which training frequencies and electrode positions are suitable for different indications and how these can be systematically expanded with ongoing therapy.


Indispensable reference book

The protocol guide is equally suitable as a reference book for experienced users and as an introduction to neurofeedback. It is suitable for anyone considering integrating Neurofeedback into their treatment spectrum. You will gain a profound insight into the theoretical principles and the practical symptom- and client-centered work that characterize this highly effective and individual Neurofeedback method.

We also recommend the protocol guide as a valuable reference book for your daily work during the preparation of a course, but at the latest after completion of a basic course. Clearly arranged and compact, it contains practical knowledge:

  • for the assessment of medical findings
  • for the recognition of patterns of misregulation
  • around symptom categories related to neurofeedback training variables
  • to all relevant indicators for starting positions and training frequencies
  • for performing 1- and 2-channel ILF neurofeedback and 1- and 2-channel alpha-theta neurofeedback
  • for 2-channel synchrony training as well as Alpha, Gamma and ILF synchrony training

It can also be used as an aid for communication with clients.

You can order the protocol guide from us immediately at a price of 179.00 Euro / 199.00 CHF plus VAT and shipping. Please use our contact form with subject "Protocol Guide".

Therapist's comments

"The Othmer method is an integral part of my therapeutic work. This technique is an invaluable aid in dealing with the various clinical diseases. The protocol guide has a fixed place on my desk and I consult it regularly".
Lina Guertin, MD, MBA,
Specialist in Psychiatry and Neurology, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, USA

"(...) The protocol guide has become an essential part of our treatment plans - an indispensable reference book in the field of Neurofeedback".
Dr. psych. Rick Harris, clinical psychologist, USA

"(...) Without neurofeedback I can no longer imagine my work. This procedure represents the most reliable and fastest acting measure for the permanent relief of massive PTSD symptoms. The growing ability for self-regulation, which I have observed in hundreds of cases, is simply revolutionary"
Dr. phil Anna Benson, clinical psychologist specializing in post-traumatic stress disorders, USA

"In my practice for neuropsychiatric integrative medicine I have tested various techniques of brain training. The technique that has clearly proven to be the most intuitive, practical and effective is the Othmer method. I have used it to help patients with a wide variety of diagnoses, including seizure disorders, brain injuries and autistic spectrum disorders. The protocol guide is one of my most valuable resources"
Doreen McMahon, MD, General Practitioner, USA
