Neurofeedback (Special Topic & Workshop) Online Workshop

Event Details

Hosted with Northeast Region Biofeedback Society

Neurofeedback, also knows as brain wave/EEG biofeedback offers a profound ability to help treat one of the most intractable mental health concerns of our time: severe childhood abuse, neglect, or abandonment, otherwise known as developmental trauma. When an attachment rupture occurs between a child and her or his primary caregiver, a tangle of complicated symptoms can set in: severe emotional dysregulation, chronic dissociation, self-destructive behaviors, social isolation, rage, and fear. Until now, few reliable therapies existed to combat developmental trauma. As described in Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain we are shown that by focusing on a client's brain-wave patterns and "training" them to operate at different frequencies, the rhythms of the brain, body, and mind are normalized, attention stabilizes, fear subsides, and, with persistent, dedicated training, regulation sets in.

This course is presented at the intermediate instructional Level. An understanding of trauma and neurofeedback is recommended.
