Egypt: Dr. Hatem Hamada is the first person in Egypt to receive BCIA certification in biofeedback. He is a neuropsychiatrist  interested in ADHD, ASD, anxiety, depression, and seizure disorder. He integrated neurofeedback and biofeedback into his practice to benefit his patients by adding evidence-based proven therapies.

 

Germany: We are pleased to announce that Dr. Theresia Stöckl-Drax, BCN, a neurodevelopmental pediatrician from Munich/ Germany, is the newest BCIA certificant in Germany. She has  integrated QEEG into her regular clinical evaluation process and 19 channel neurofeedback is now an important treatment option in her neurodevelopmental clinic. Most recently she presented her approach at the Society of Applied Neuroscience (SAN) conference in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Ireland: Dr. Michael Keane, BCN is the first person in the Republic of Ireland to receive BCIA certification. He is a Lecturer in Psychology at Dublin City University, and also runs a Neurofeedback Clinic there. Interest in neurofeedback is growing in Ireland, and an increasing number of medical and psychological professionals in Ireland are recognizing its utility. Michael is delighted to be able to bring an evidence-based approach to neurofeedback to those interested, and he benefits greatly from various collaborations with colleagues in the US, Europe, and South Africa.

Hong Kong: BCIA congratulates Davis Ching Cheong Lak on his certification in neurofeedback.  He is the first professional in his country to earn the BCN credential.  Ide Chan was the first to gain her certification in biofeedback and she works at the Queen Elizabeth  Hospital.  Mr. Lak has told us that there is a lot of interest in learning to apply bio and neurofeedback techniques in Hong Kong and we look forward to further collaboration with more Chinese clinicians as they work through the certification process in the near future.

Germany:  We are pleased to announce that Ruth Kreider recently earned the BCN credential.  Other professionals in Germany who carry the BCN include:  Thomas Feiner, Doerte Klein, and Kerstin Mayer.  Ruth is very busy working with many experienced neurofeedback clinicians, including a developmental pediatric practice with Dr. Theresia Stoeckl-Drax and with Dr. Wolfgang Keeser in his Child and Youth Behavioral Psychology practice.  We look forward to working with many more professionals in Germany as the field continues to grow.
