This presentation/webinar will focus on the various types of Neuro therapy utilized at The Meadows Brain Center. Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, and Entrainment will be explained in depth and how they are used within the context of the patient’s treatment plan.
Using Neurofeedback, specifically, the autonomic baseline of an individual’s arousal profile can determine which device might be more effective in up/down regulating their nervous system. The primary focus of Neurofeedback is on addressing arousal and attention. Because arousal and attention underlie so many psychiatric disorders, Neurofeedback is able to address a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, disordered eating, sleep disturbances, and PTSD.
After this training, participants will be able to:
- Describe how the Arousal Model can be used in conjunction with the Brain Center devices and Neurofeedback.
- Describe how Entrainment, Biofeedback & Neurofeedback devices can be used to calm and quiet subcortical regions of the brain, allowing for patients to move toward greater integration.
- Identify how and why Neurofeedback is able to address a wide variety of behavioral health issues.
