317 – Integrating Neurofeedback with Psychotherapy
Technology in the Treatment Room
Try as we might through talk and somatic therapies, it can be very difficult to shift the states of fear, shame, and rage that haunt clients with early developmental traumas. Fortunately, recent research shows that using neurofeedback to train the brain to fire in new ways can quiet these trauma-based affects, and create a space for healing. In this workshop, you’ll discover:
- How trauma alters the developing brain, and how, by changing brain waves and reactivity in the brain through biofeedback, we can regulate or reverse those alterations
- Clear steps for integrating neurofeedback into your practice, including how to introduce the approach, deliver psychoeducation, and assess its effectiveness
- User-friendly guidance on how neurofeedback works to quiet hard-to-treat states of fear, rage, and shame
