TRAUMA and RECOVERY:
Integration of Neurofeedback and Psychotherapy
One-day ANSA pre-conference workshop with
Sebern Fisher, M.A., BCIA
12 August 2010, Mantra
South Kingscliff, Australia
Early bird registration ends on the 15th of July!
About the workshop:
This will be a pragmatic workshop on treating survivors of trauma using neurofeedback and psychotherapy. We’ll focus on clinical assessment, initial and ongoing, affect regulation and protocol development. Neurofeedback practice sheds new light on many aspects of trauma recovery including the centrality of fear, abreaction, repressed memory, and affect regulation and it also changes the role of the therapist in the therapeutic endeavor. We’ll look at therapeutic practices that can enhance neurofeedback outcomes. We’ll discuss what we can expect from neurofeedback with patients with trauma histories as well as those with personality disorders.
This workshop will include lecture, group interaction and ample time for case discussion.
