Foundations course: COHERENCE TRAINING:  WHY DO IT?

Plenary:  Synchrony Versus Asynchrony, There Lies The Rub

WS The Potential of the Synchronous Brain; Synchrony Training for Individual and Adults

Sebern Fisher Sebern Fisher is a psychodynamic psychotherapist with a primary interest in the importance of secure attachment throughout the life span. She incorporated neurofeedback into her clinical practice in 1997. The effects of brain training that she has both experienced and witnessed have had significant impact on the way she now conceptualizes personality, self, psychopathology and even free will.

 Experience with neurofeedback has reinforced her view that attachment is hardwired and secured through affect regulation. She believes that the single most important contribution of neurofeedback is regulation of affect.  She has fully integrated neurofeedback into her practice of psychotherapy, rarely, now, providing one without the other. She has used this technology to great benefit with people suffering from conditions as apparently varied as Asperger’s, PTSD, dyslexia, dissociative disorders and attachment disorder.

Sebern was the Clinical Director of a residential treatment center for severely disturbed adolescents for ten years and now maintains a private practice in Northampton, Massachusetts. She is an owner of EEG Spectrum International, and speaks nationally and internationally on neurofeedback, neurofeedback and psychodynamic practice and theory, and on attachment and neurofeedback. She discovered the FPO2 site as a meaningful placement for training related to fear and fear based disorders.

Can we discern and then build upon the commonalities in order to present a more coherent, more integrated model of biofeedback to the allied health professions and to the public at large?

A qEEG Analysis of Single Channel Bipolar Montage Temporal Lobe Training For Cortical Instabilities An innovative form of training has recently emerged in NFB and is being used by many key therapists and instructors.  This protocol appears to be especially useful with cortical instabilities.  Sue & Sigfried Othmer have proposed that cortical instability be considered another primary category of EEG disorder in contrast to hyperarousal and hypoarousal.  Many clinicians have found this category of phenomena difficult to treat, but are finding considerable success with this new approach.  This presentation will briefly review several case studies of pre and post treatment with this protocol and compare it to more conventional qEEG approaches utilizing qEEG and LORETA analysis.
