Life remains for those under the burden of trauma only a quest for survival - until someone throws them a lifeline of the possibility of quieting the fear and consequently improved self-regulation through neurofeedback.

Sebern Fisher Series - Why neurofeedback is the Future of Trauma Therapy

Sebern Fisher Series - Why neurofeedback is the Future of Trauma Therapy

Sebern Fisher discusses neurofeedback, what the ACE study shows, the mythology of bouncing back from trauma, the limits of cognitive behavioral therapy and talk therapy in general, why neurofeedback is a critical part of therapy, the importance of the therapeutic relationship, and the work of Ruth Lanius in neuroscience research. ๐—”๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—œ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ: ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ป ๐—™๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ, M.A, BCN is the author of 'Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain'. Sebern was the Clinical Director of a residential treatment program for severely traumatized youth for 17 years and has worked with developmentally traumatized adults for her 45 year clinical career. She adopted neurofeedback in 1997 after experiencing profound and unexpected responses to it for herself. She has developed several protocols specifically to quiet the fear-driven brain and has written numerous articles and case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of neurofeedback when used in conjunction with trauma therapy. She is presently in private practice where she provides neurofeedback, psychotherapy and consultation, and offers training nationally and internationally. ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ป ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ: ____________________________________________ ๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—”๐—ง๐—˜๐—— ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ง๐—˜๐—ก๐—ง โžค๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฎ, ๐——๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜, ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—•๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป - ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ป ๐—™๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฅ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ต ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜‚๐˜€ โžค๐—ง๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฎ, ๐——๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜, ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ก๐—ฒ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† - ๐—ฅ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ต ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜‚๐˜€ โžค๐—˜๐—ป๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฆ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐˜€ - ๐—ก๐—ฒ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐——๐—ฟ. ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—”๐—บ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป โžค๐—œ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ง๐—ผ ๐—ก๐—ฒ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—”๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฎ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ ____________________________________________ ๐—Ÿ๐—˜๐—ง'๐—ฆ ๐—–๐—ข๐—ก๐—ก๐—˜๐—–๐—ง --๐—ข๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ช๐—ฒ๐—ฏ๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€โ€” ๐—˜๐—˜๐—š๐—ฒ๐—ฟ: ๐—˜๐—˜๐—š ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ป (Online Courses): ๐—˜๐—˜๐—š ๐—ฆ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ (Neurofeedback Equipment): --๐—™๐—ผ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—จ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฎโ€” ๐—™๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ: ๐—œ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—บ: ๐—ง๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ: ๐—Ÿ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—œ๐—ป: ๐—ฃ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜: ____________________________________________ #Neurofeedback #NeurofeedbackTraining #EEGer #EEGlearn #SebernFisher #Neuroplasticity #Neuroscience #NeurofeedbackTherapy #BrainTraining #EEGtraining #NeurofeedbackCourse #TraumaRecovery #EEGsoftware #Webinar #MentalHealth
Vagus Nerve Reset To Release Trauma Stored In The Body (Polyvagal Exercises)

Vagus Nerve Reset To Release Trauma Stored In The Body (Polyvagal Exercises)

This vagus nerve reset is designed to relieve stress and anxiety by restoring the social engagement state referenced in Polyvagal Theory developed by Stephen Porges. Vagus nerve exercises also turn off fight or flight in the sympathetic nervous system to release trauma stored in the body.

The first is: How do I know if I have trauma stored in my body? The answer to that one is, you do. We all do. Trauma is a part of life and weโ€™ve all got stuff. (Even if you donโ€™t remember it.) Itโ€™s why our shoulders are tight and our backs ache. Itโ€™s why we get weekly massages and go to therapy. It underlies most chronic health conditions and makes them worse. Case in point: Did you know that researchers have drawn a connection between experiencing racism and a higher prevalence of adult onset asthma for black women? Trauma isnโ€™t always about the Big Events. Yes, those count. Of course they do. But so does having a distant mother (who likely had her own trauma). Cultural shaming (hello women who were constantly told to be quiet, be small, not take up space). Toxic work environments. Not being heard. Microaggressions. And of course the ever prevalent accidents, injuries, falls out of trees and off horses, broken legs, cracked ribs, etc, etc, etc. So, youโ€™ve got some trauma. You donโ€™t have to call it that, but itโ€™s there, okay? Now the second question: what do we do about it? This is the part I love. SO MUCH of the conversation surrounding trauma in our culture boils down to understanding the narrative -- whatโ€™s your story? Thatโ€™s important, BUTโ€ฆ It doesnโ€™t get to the biological roots. These parts of our bodies are up to 500 million years old and they frankly donโ€™t give a flying unicorn fart about your story. So thatโ€™s where I come in. We can โ€œtalkโ€ to these ancient parts of you -- the parts where fear, stress and trauma are stored -- through movement and sensation, which form the language of your nervous system. And thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m showing you how to do in this video. You can use this vagus nerve reset regularly any time you feel stressed, anxious or tense. Be sure and leave me a comment to let me know how this vagus nerve reset went for you!
