Len's Round Tables ~ 1Hr
Discussions: when/why offset 80 can be a problem; the technique of slowly lowering the offset; how to determine when it’s time to shift from 100% duty cycle to 1%.
Case: extreme survivor syndrome – strong sleepy reaction to feedback;
Case: client improved, then became worse (involving vertigo).
Discussions: treating clients who’ve had a stroke; what a “Q” is and the variety of QEEQs.
Case: a depressed client (viewed maps);
Case: a bipolar client with abuse history (viewed maps);
Case: a young narcissistic woman.
Discussions: how to convert old J&J electrodes for use with A200 (to use with Body Appl.); more about using LENS across nail beds; the awkwardness of explaining LENS; the range of applications; distinguishing reactivity in relation to allergens; consciousness and its effects on functionality & perception.
Discussions: working with chronic Shingles pain; reactivity retoning, irritability and suppression: using the active electrode across the nail beds; reactivity vis-a-vis seizure spectrum; describing what LENS is.
No annotations, 55 minutes
Discussions: application fundamentals; the subjectivity of reading clients; the value of intuition; reactivity and episodic events; working with and understanding highly functional people, and how & why LENS is rougher for the nearly perfect than the more dysfunctional people.
The first 12 minutes of this webinar before the audio went down, and restarted in the next recording. Excellent question: Can I do maps with two channels with both active and reference on the head, instead of putting the reference on the ear?
Intense and deep discussion on the practical uses of 1-channel and 2-channel bipolar placements vs. 2-channel applications.

A sophisticated look at LENS fundamentals of offset, sensitivity, reactivity, hardiness, Offset Evaluation -- how to modify and whether to use . A very important look at LENS fundamentals.
Complex cases reviewed, with standard and suppression map on the last one. Patient Management issues highlighted.
Suppression-generated suppression, lay therapists, targeting problems, 100% duty cycle vs. 1% duty cycle problems, therapist puzzlement as an internal cue about problem complexity, complex case in childhood, including perhaps allergy-based seizure spectrum problems; differential reactivity of the brains of autistics, symptoms, and treatment; Photonic Stimulator use.
This webinar integrates much of the preceding webinar content, including the Complex applications webinar of yesterday. Don't miss this one!
Topic: body pain and its management; a 70+ y/o client fell some time ago and has been depressed since, although still making gains with the LENS. She now limps, but was not asked about whether she is in pain or what kind of pain she is in. We saw changes in her maps. Discussion turned to how to talk about pain levels, their effect on mood and cognition, and how to manage such clients.
How to import LENSware2 into for pain records into Excel was demonstrated three times. The goal was to be able to see session graphs. The graphs were then copied and pasted into Word documents. Finally, several questions were offered about the necessity of having feedback, vs. just stimulation, as well as ones about the origins of the offset.
Almost a continuation of the 90-minute webinar on pain around an example of one patient with a 20-year history of regional complex back pain syndrome that completely responded in 200+ seconds using procedures described in the Pain webinar. Her data was graphed.
Question about someone who appeared relatively insensitive and unreactive and non-survivorish but turned out to be the opposite, with a map-based discussion about the subtleties of sensitivity, reactivity, and treating with the Variable +/- offset.
One case reviewed with maps: the case of a schizophrenic male who fell asleep during LENS treatment (who may have needed a lighter application), and the case of the grandmother who of the mother whose Down's syndrome baby drowned -- a prolonged grieving reaction -- reviewed briefly without map.
Variability and suppression questions re 43 y/o female, with maps; doing well with OCD fearing she'll harm others, but global variability remains. Technical (multi-channel plans for future, intricacies of diagnosis and applications settings, treatment during colds, applications for the sensitive but depressed, many questions about suppression and treatment thereof, MS questions with map, questions about band filters.
Focusing on one case of ADD/ADHD with TBI and Adderall, which applications to use, why and when to change applications, with some discussion of underlying glial/vascular interaction with the neurons; differences among inhibition, suppression, and integration.
Post Advanced Sebastopol Webinar #3 from November 9, 2012 Advanced: 54 Minutes.This webinar was centered on the question "How do I identify seizures from the EEG" -- a full answer. Second question: Explain about the long (15-, 30-, and 60-second 100% duty cycle) applications, when I'm used to using the 2-second 100% duty cycle app. Last brief topic: Place of the Glia, Neurons, and Arteries in working with the LENS.
Complex case with map review: who does and doesn't respond to 100% duty cycle? Question about the meaning of the "Total amplitude."1/16/13 Very complex case of a moderately sensitive and reactive but hardy 20-year old who used to be anxious but is now depressed. Interaction with residual infection assessed. Viewed maps.1/9/13 Case of somebody with nearly 40 sessions who is much better, still smoking marijuana, but the results only last about 5 days. Suggested new application, explained why, and answered questions along the way.
This Webinar focused on the Offset Evaluation, its history, how and why modifications were made in the report, how to modify the Offset Evaluation Application, and ways to use the report.
Special Topics Webinar
Two channel applications for J&J and Atlantis reviewed as per Mike's PowerPoint, but LW3 2 channel was also introduced. As important, perhaps, what happens neurologically with two channel was considered. Rx: follow up in a month with LW3 working to demonstrate.
(ST) Complex Applications 1 hr., 31 minutes
Differences between simple and complex, what makes applications complex and how they are different from the simple but unusual ones; history and evolution of the applications; uses of some of the applications; way too short.
(ST) Treating Pain with the LENS on the Body 1 hr, 26 minutes
We addressed which electrodes and cables to use, which application has been extensively used for years, and how to place the electrodes were covered in depth. We also addressed a wide variety of questions as well.
(ST) Suppression in Three Domains 1 hr 27 minutes
To understand how to use the suppression maps the history of suppression in the LENS world was described. Amplitude, Dominant Frequency, and Variability suppression were considered as to which choices of maps are to be used, and why.
(ST) What Would Len Do?
Many providers achieve less from the LENS than we do. Why? 1. LENS paradigm different from that of traditional neurofeedback. 2. Psychotherapy used to prolong use of LENS by patient and to offer context 3. Mapping may be useful to a high degree.
(ST) Hyper-Reactivity and Desensitization
Variety of clinical pictures are matched up with different settings configurations.

(ST) ADD and ADHD and the LENS
(ST) PainThis Webinar is the first in a series of 5. This one is on the use of the photonic stimulator and LENS with peripheral and centrally mediated pain.
