Learn breakthrough applications of EEG neurofeedback from today's leading experts.

This applied neuroscience track brings together researchers, engineers, clinicians and neurobiologists who are exploring ways in which computers can assist in the modulation of focusing, arousal, and filtering, and thereby shape mental and physiological self-experience. One of the oldest, and best researched, approaches for improving self-regulation of the central nervous system is neurofeedback, which has been applied in a variety of settings.

In this workshop participants will be exposed to an overview of arousal dysregulation in severe emotional disorders and ways in which technology can be used to regulate arousal and improve emotional and behavioral functioning. We will explore the use of the quantitative EEG, and review the development of instrumentation that can help with “essential self-experiences”.

Bessel A. van der Kolk Related seminars and products: 7

M.D.


Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. is a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of post-traumatic stress. His work integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma. He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater and EMDR.

He is founder and medical director of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts. The Trauma Center consists of a well-trained clinical team specializing in the treatment of children and adults with histories of child maltreatment, that applies treatment models that are widely taught and implemented nationwide.  He also created the Trauma Research Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Trauma Center, that is organized to promote clinical, scientific and educational projects.

His most recent 2014 New York Times best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma, transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, somatically based therapies, EMDR, psychodrama, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Dr. van der Kolk is the past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He regularly teaches at conferences, universities, and hospitals around the world.
