Description of Organization and Population Served:
Radiance House is a Human Resources company. We do publishing, training, and research. The population served is primarily psychologists, HR professionals (counselors, coaches, trainers, etc), and similar individuals and groups seeking greater understanding about themselves and others. Most relevant to academic fieldwork, we use EEG technology to explore facets of human psychology. EEG reveals local, global, and networked patterns of activity in the neocortex. Typically, participants try a standardized protocol of tasks (math, music, visual-spatial problems, storytelling, etc). Alternatively, participants might engage in a single broad activity such as media consumption, game playing, or team problem solving. A software package analyzes the raw data and reveals potential links to favorite activities, cognitive skills, emotional dynamics, personality traits, and behavior. We do *not* offer medical diagnosis or treatment. Rather, the results offer implications for skill building, coaching, communication, leadership, problem solving, education, and other application areas. Professionals often find this information useful for themselves and the populations that they serve.
Description of Fieldwork Project and Responsibilities of Intern:
Interns are responsible for assisting with EEG sessions and/or conducting data analysis, a literature search, and interviews with participants. An intern will learn about and demonstrate skill using EEG technology in an ethical, informed, and empowering way, with a focus on best practices for practical non-medical applications. Facets of competence include some or all of the following, typically in this order: 1) brain basics (mainly, neocortex structure and function) 2) EEG technology (limits, strengths, and methods of use) 3) administering protocols with clients 4) using software to analyze EEG data for individuals 5) compiling reports 6) interpreting reports 7) interpreting the EEG literature 8) forming and testing research hypothesis 9) working within the larger community of practitioners 10) maintaining professional standards
Interns should be highly motivated and capable of working independently. An understanding of brain function, anatomy, and neuroimaging is encouraged, as well as strong interpersonal skills and the capacity to use complex computer software.
