A Brain’s Rhythm
Neurofeedback for Quieting Fear and Reactivity
Every therapy available to us focuses on the importance of affect regulation in the treatment of trauma. Affect regulation has been hijacked in those who have suffered neglect and abuse early in childhood and it has been hijacked first in the brain. In this webinar, we’ll take a look at what happens in the brain and how neurofeedback can address the primary need for affect regulation.
1. Describe three central networks disrupted by childhood trauma and the impacts of these disruptions.
2. Describe how neurofeedback addresses affect regulation.
