Have you heard the buzz about neurofeedback? Are you curious about learning more about what it is?
Clinicians, teachers, and parents working and living with children who have experienced developmental or complex relational trauma are deeply familiar with its symptoms of emotional dysregulation, dissociation, self-destructive behaviors, social isolation, rage, and fear. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that focuses on a client’s brain-wave patterns and “trains” them to operate at different frequencies. Over time and with dedicated usage, neurofeedback aims to optimize the rhythms of the brain and the body, calming fear, improving alertness, and increasing overall regulation.
While there is a growing body of research that has shown that neurofeedback may be helpful at alleviating the symptoms of a wide range clinical issues, including developmental or complex relational trauma, many clinicians and caregivers are not aware of its potential benefit as an adjunct treatment to psychotherapy. We have the great fortune of learning about this modality from an expert not only in neurofeedback but in attachment disorders as well. Sebern F. Fisher, MA, is an immensely experienced practitioner and international trainer on the integration of neurofeedback and psychotherapy, offers us a rich window into neurobiological theory, attachment disorders and developmental or complex relational trauma.
This workshop covers the following topics:
Overview of neurofeedback and complex relational trauma
Clinical examples of how neurofeedback impacts behavior and emotion regulation associated with complex relational trauma and attachment disorders
