The World Federation for Mental Health prescribes: “Stimulate new areas of your brain and grow more connections among brain cells by intellectually challenging yourself. Solve a puzzle, learn a new musical instrument, read a challenging book, play a board or card game, attend a lecture or play, or write a short story”. This Neuropsychotherapy Course helps therapists and teachers adapt digital gamification and multimedia to provide such stimulation. It builds from basic audio-visual skills to comprehensive studio techniques, all within conventional budget limits.
I'm a researcher in Sydney, Australia. I have a long history with the University of New South Wales, having begun my career in its teaching hospitals as a clinical psychologist, and acted as an expert witness in neuropsychology and forensic psychology. I was a lecturer in the medical faculty and taught a variety of management and I.T. related courses.
Over the decades of this work I developed a range of educational/therapeutic activities and in recent years have been able to apply this research while working as a senior researcher at the state government department of education and training.
Currently I work in an administrative role so I am offering my accumulated research experience through professional development activities such as these OpenLearning courses. I do these at my own expense and time so my message to teachers and therapists is that this is do-it-yourself level activity -ie- thanks to these free resources such as OpenLearning, Bigmarker, and YouTube you can literally run an international multimedia network and a full Media Institute of Technology from a card table, at no more budget than a meal and drink at the local karaoke.
If I can do it so can you. Where I can help you is by speeding up the learning curve. I've reviewed countless software/hardware combinations and can save you a lot of time and money.
