Description

 

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 van der Kolk, M.D.'s Profile

Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. Related seminars and products


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 of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, and President of the Trauma Research Foundation, which promotes clinical, scientific, and educational projects. 

His 2014 #1 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.

Sebern Fisher, MA's Profile

Sebern Fisher, MA Related seminars and products


Sebern F. Fisher, MA, is a psychotherapist and neurofeedback practitioner in private practice who specializes in the aftermath of neglect and abuse in early childhood. She focuses on training the traumatized brain to learn its own regulation which it can learn at any age. She trains professionals nationally and internationally on neurofeedback and on the need to integrate neurofeedback with psychotherapy. Her book, Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain, has helped her readers understand how the traumatized brain can give rise to explosive feelings, irrational thinking and destructive behavior. When the brain learns its own regulation, its owner can engage meaningfully in psychotherapy and in life. The book is now also available as an audiobook on Audible.
