The Life of Brian Othmer (1968 – 1991)

Brian’s legacy is the continuing inspiration for our work at the EEG Institute. His life and path toward recovery are testimony to the fact that neurofeedback touches us across the entire hierarchy of healing, from basic neurological deficits through issues of emotional regulation, all the way to optimal functioning, and ultimately to the spiritual dimension of our human existence.


Brian’s Legacy

Brian’s Legacy chronicles the emotional journey of a dedicated father and his troubled son, by pairing Brian’s journal entries with his father’s recollections. As a child, Brian Othmer faced many challenges. As a young adult, he recorded his journey in a diary, which reveals a young man determined to understand himself and his brain, and to answer the question that drives him: Where do I fit in this world?

This is the perfect read for anyone who has been touched in some way by the difficulties of raising a troubled child. It is also a universal story for those looking for inspiration to improve their day-to-day lives.
