In these uncertain and crises times, we are all fearful and stressed. However, we know that eventually this pandemic will be over and life will get back to normal (more or less). Sadly, this is not the case for a large class of people, those suffering from developmental trauma (DT), for whom every day is a life of fear, stress and one crisis after another.

So what is DT? Developmental Trauma (DT) or complex childhood trauma has arguably been one of the most important persistent public health challenges in the United States with little improvement. It has a negative impact on mental, physiological, and neurobiological functioning; leads to a lower quality of life and early death; and creates a substantial financial burden for the individuals affected, their families, and the healthcare system as a whole. Moreover, people with DT are often more resistant to traditional therapy.
DT alters and dysregulates brain activities.  Neurofeedback training directly addresses these issues making it an essential treatment modality for DT. Our current research on adults and children with DT has shown that neurofeedback training significantly improves executive functioning and emotion regulation, while reducing trauma symptoms. Moreover, these neurological changes can be detected by neuromarkers such as qEEG and ERPs.
This webinar starts with an overview of DT, its outcome and impact; continues with presenting our two researches about Neurofeedback and DT; follows up with implementing them in the clinical settings; and concludes with detecting these neurological changes with qEEG and ERPs.
