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.
