ABOUT THE WEBINARS
Given the overwhelming impact of neglect and abuse on the developing brain it can feel daunting to train people with developmental trauma. I am increasingly convinced, however, that those who have suffered these histories cannot thrive without help in lowering arousal and regulating their brains. So it is up to us to find the path.
Through cases brought by participants, we will look at assessment, protocols, and integration of neurofeedback with psychotherapy. Conversations could range further into subjects such as the epigenetics of trauma, pattern recognition and repetition compulsion, trauma fields and trauma identity, the disgrace and distraction of the DSM, laterality and the sense of self and other topics as they arise from case discussion.
Sebern Fisher has been integrating neurofeedback and psychotherapy into the treatment of those with developmental trauma for the last twenty years. She was the clinical director of a residential treatment facility for severely disturbed adolescents for 17 years. During her tenure she introduced attachment theory and dialectical behavior therapy to the milieu. She is presently in private practice where she provides neurofeedback, psychotherapy and consultation. She trains nationally and internationally. Sebern is the author of Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-driven Brain (Norton 2014).
