Workshop #24):  An EEG Based Inventory For Neurofeedback Professionals 

The Interactive Self Inventory is designed to be used by neurofeedback practitioners to assess clients in a variety of dimensions of social interaction. Using this Inventory they can assist clients in taking steps to change that are consistent with their qEEG patterns and their neurofeedback training.

Plenary #117):  Measuring Transformation 

The Interactive Self Inventory relates dimensions of social behavior to dimensions of EEG distribution. Consequently general patterns of EEG distribution can be predicted based on dimensions of social behavior and vice-versa. In addition these dimensions can be used to identify key areas for transformation toward optimal performance as well as pre and post changes in behavior due to neurofeedback training and optimal performance training. This provides a unique instrument for assessment for neurofeedback providers based on the social domain that is educational in nature and does not require psychological expertise or certification for implimentation.




Workshop #24):  An EEG Based Inventory For Neurofeedback Professionals

The Interactive Self Inventory (ISI) was designed to assess the strengths and weaknesses of key dimensions of social interaction. The eight dimensions of this instrument are correlated with various levels of EEG coupling and are intended to predict general qEEG patterns of power and magnitude distribution. The instrument was also designed to determine what steps can be taken to improve social accuracy as well as support the neurofeedback protocol being used concurrently to re-establish an optimal coupling zone and neural efficiency and timing. This allows neurofeedback pracitioners to evaluate the impact of social systems and interaction on the training process, such as the family system, and harness those systems for a more integrated approach. It can also be used as a measure of transformation and preparedness for meditation training. The presentation will look at social accuracy as the key concept behind the ISI and how it relates to the concepts of approach and avoidance behavior. The 16 subdimensions of approach and avoidance will be reviewed in detail and related to qEEG patterns of distribution of magnitude and power. Important aspect regarding face validity, external and internal validity, sampling, dimensional orthagonality, instrument sensitivity, and cross validation will be addressed. Uses of the ISI for various forms of assessment will be considered. In addition the manner in which the ISI can be used to guide individuals through specific steps to change leading to positive transformation will be discussed in detail.
