Parts 1 & 2 Open Now: All 17 pivotal lecture sessions by acclaimed teacher, author, and therapist Sebern Fisher.
Take a deep dive into the emerging neuroscience and new approaches to therapy. Learn from Sebern's transformative, illuminating lectures and discussion of the critical importance of the therapeutic relationship, and how brain-training and neurofeedback are supported and deeply informed by recent discoveries in neurocience.
Abuse, assault and neglect in early childhood impact every major system in the human brain from the brainstem to the cortex, from the sense of balance to the sense of self.
These disruptions in brain development have far reaching implications for the treatment of those who have suffered these histories.
Emerging neuroscience is showing that neglect and abuse in early childhood impact every major system in the human brain. Developmental trauma impairs the functioning of structures including the anterior cingulate, the precuneus and the right temporal lobe as well as primary networks, most notably the Default Mode Network all of which, OPTIMALLY give rise to a stable, organized sense of self and other. This disruption in the integrity of the sense of self as it is represented in the brain has far reaching implications for treatment. It is becoming increasingly clear that those with these histories require an integrated approach using neurofeedback to address malfunctioning circuitries in the brain, psychotherapy to address the minds that these brains give rise to, and trauma informed body work to help these “bodies that keep the score”.
Part One (8 one hour sessions) of this webinar provides an overview of the latest neuroscience findings in developmental trauma, demonstrating its impact on brain development and function. We review the fundamentals of clinical assessment focusing on arousal, including history and symptom presentation and how each relates to the set point of the CNS. We discuss the primacy of fear, shame and rage in those with developmental trauma and how to quiet the circuitries that give rise to them. And we discuss the implementation of neurofeedback protocols, developed over the last twenty years, to help these brains learn to organize themselves and to regulate high levels of emotional arousal.
Part Two (8 one hour sessions) of our webinar focuses on the integration of neurofeedback and psychotherapy.. The neuroscience of developmental trauma requires us to consider the use of neurofeedback with these patients while also making it clear that neurofeedback by itself is not enough. Quieting fear, shame and rage allows for meaningful psychotherapy, it doesn't replace it. But how do we have meaningful therapy with patients who lack a sense of self and other? How do we encounter this dilemma in our treatment? What contribution can neurofeedback make to the development of self / other capacity? How is trauma memory held in the body and can neurofeedback help? We explore these questions and look at the ways that neurofeedback can benefit psychotherapy as well as the central and changing role of the therapist who uses neurofeedback in the treatment of developmental trauma.
This includes a bonus session, recorded between Part 1 & 2, featuring a Q&A about the material with Sebern.
This 17-session recorded webinar series explores strategies for a successful integrated therapeutic approach using trauma-informed psychotherapy, neurofeedback, and trauma-informed body work, to deeply address the terrible aftermath of developmental trauma.
