Neurofeedback as an Adjunctive Therapy in the Treatment of Trauma (Lecture by Angelika Sadar, BCN, BCB-HRV)

When an attachment rupture occurs between a child and their primary caregiver, complicated symptoms set in that can include emotional dysregulation, fear, disturbances in attention,relationship problems as well as self-destructive behaviors in an effort to manage one’s self. Neuroplasticity has opened the door to understanding how the brain develops from infancy through adulthood and how trauma can alter the course of development. Neurofeedback . Researchers Bessel van der Kolk, MD and Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD. have shown that neurofeedback works for patients where other treatments have failed and that neurofeedback makes changes in the traumatized brain, respectively. Adding neurofeedback as a skill can be a confusing process for providers. This course will provide a brief history of neurofeedback, followed by how it can be integrated into the therapeutic process aimed at healing developmental trauma.
