Using Neurofeedback for affect regulation: The key to treatment of trauma and psychotic process - Sebern Fisher
We have to think differently about both developmental trauma and psychotic process and their treatment. Psychotherapy typically is not enough and medication all too often exacerbates the problem.
In this webinar, Sebern Fisher expands on emerging neuroscience that shows that early childhood neglect and abuse impact major structures and networks in the human brain. The largest network, the Default Mode Network supports the sense of self and other and it is significantly impaired in developmental trauma. How does one engage in psychotherapy when they have has no reliable sense that they exist or that their therapist does? This is a core issue in psychosis process as well. It is a brain problem before it becomes a mental health problem.
Fear and reactivity dominate the nervous systems of traumatized people. It is the nature of it. Neuroscience research is now showing what neurofeedback therapists have been reporting: training the brain with feedback eases fear and reactivity. The brain learns through neurofeedback how to regulate itself.
This webinar will review the latest neuroscience findings in trauma and will provide an overview of the arousal model of neurofeedback with a specific focus on quieting fear.
Don’t be afraid of the brain. Learn how to work with it. It’s where the hope is.
