Dr. Matthew Fleischman received his PhD from the University of Oregon. He taught in inner-city schools, residential treatment facilities for juvenile offenders and helped develop a day treatment program for children with serious mental and behavioral health issues.. He was Principal Investigator on an NIMH grant on the implementation of behavioral family treatment programs in several protective services units in Oregon that achieved an 80% reduction in out-of-home placements. In 1989 he was introduced to neurofeedback by Dr. Gene Peniston, a pioneer in the field. Dr. Fleischman has taught in the US and abroad on the integration of neurofeedback and behavior therapy. Over the course of his career he has worked with many modalities of neurofeedback including QEEG-based protocols, LENS, pirHEG, SMR/beta range training and Infra Low Frequency (ILF) range treatment. For many years he has worked closely with Sue and Siegfried Othmers and the EEG Institute/EEG Info but has no financial relationship.
