The workshop will be presented in English (with simultaneous translation to Spanish) and organizers are happy to now be able to welcome English and Spanish speaking participants from around the world.

In an online event organized by the Sociedad Española de Bio y Neurofeedback and sponsored by the BFE, Sebern Fisher will share her expertise on the use of neurofeedback with developmental trauma disorders as described in her book “Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear Driven Brain.” Neurofeedback is a method by which clinicians measure EEG activity in the brain and guide their clients to transform brain-wave patterns to an optimal state. Neurofeedback is used for many conditions and disabilities in which the brain is not organizing itself as well as it might.

Psychotherapists interested in incorporating neurofeedback into their treatment of developmental trauma and those already doing so will learn: the latest neuroscience research relating to the impact of neglect and abuse on the developing brain; the impact of early life trauma on brain networks and on the arousal level of the CNS; neurofeedback protocols that have been effective in treating people with these histories; and approaches to the integration of neurofeedback and psychotherapy.

Originally planned as a 2-day onsite workshop in Madrid, the event will now take place online, over four half days to best accommodate a number of time zones. The workshop will be presented in English (with simultaneous translation to Spanish) and organizers are happy to now be able to welcome English and Spanish speaking participants from around the world.

The event also celebrates the recent release of the Spanish version of “Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma” titled “Neurofeedback en el tratamiento del trauma del desarrollo. Calmar el cerebro impulsado por el miedo”.
