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.

In session #2 we are honored to have Sebern Fisher as our special guest.

Schedule
3:30-4:30pm EDT: 1 hr Lecture by Sebern Fisher
4:30-5:30pm EDT: 1 hr Q&A with Sebern Fisher and Bessel van der Kolk


Sebern Fisher Presents
"Quieting Fear and Reactivity: Training the Brain and Finding a Self"

Sebern Fisher will introduce you to Soji, a woman with a long treatment history for neglect, abuse and primary invalidation in childhood. She’d been on multiple psychotropics, typically four or five at a time, engaged in both DBT and psychodynamic therapies and she was hospitalized twice. On video, Soji will speak about her experience of neurofeedback and therapy and the changes she felt in her sense of self. After the video, I’ll reflect on the implications of Soji’s experience, and my own, for the treatment of developmental trauma.

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

We will cover
- How the brain changes with developmental trauma
- Neurofeedback in the treatment of trauma
- What clinical expertise is required to train trauma with neurofeedback
- How to track symptoms during neurofeedback training
- What clinical feedback looks like combined with neurofeedback
- and more...

You will be able to
- Discuss important issues and challenges within this community
- Describe how neurofeedback can be applied to the treatment of trauma
- List three essential components of provider education/training that must be achieved prior to embarking on offering neurofeedback to patients with a trauma history
- Describe the risks involved in treating patients without sufficient monitoring of goals and progress towards goals.
