OPEN FOCUS COACHING CERTIFICATION
The persons listed on the Open Focus website as “Certified Coaches” have received education and training by the personnel of the Princeton Biofeedback Centre, LLC. This training establishes minimal skills relating to the use of EEG instruments for multi-channel synchrony training and/or to establish minimal skills to guide attention training using one-on-one or recorded Open Focus exercises.
Unlicensed individuals, certified by the Princeton Biofeedback Centre, LLC, are not to view either of these certifications as a license to treat symptoms of a psychological, psychiatric, or medical nature. By law, only duly licensed professionals may include these methodologies within a treatment protocol. Open Focus attention training exercises and neurosynchrony instrumentation are designed to be used as relaxation methodologies and for personal entertainment purposes only, such as Jacobson relaxation response, yoga, tai chi, guided imagery, etc., never as treatment modalities by unlicensed providers.
Licensed and unlicensed providers are encouraged to seek certification for biofeedback and neurofeedback methodologies by the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America (BCIA). Appropriate use of these methodologies and any associated risks are the responsibility of each certified provider and user.
The above limitations also appear on the Open Focus website.
I have read, understand and agree to comply with the above limitations of use of Open Focus exercises and neurofeedback synchrony instrumentation.
