Neurofeedback 101: A Crash Course for Professionals

Neurofeedback training is an amazing treatment tool that can help calm anxiety, lift depression, and improve attention and focus. Originally developed for NASA pilots, neurofeedback is a non-invasive treatment that produces long-lasting results by training brain waves, correcting brain dysregulation, and improving communication between networks. This interactive and dynamic presentation will use case examples and demonstrations to help providers understand how neurofeedback works, how it fits in with talk therapy and psychopharmacology, and when to refer to a client to neurofeedback, and provide a step-by-step explanation of the course of treatment.

Understanding Trauma and Attachment: Incorporating Elements of Play Therapy and EMDR Techniques in Working with Trauma Clients (adults and children)
This presentation will highlight the intersection of trauma and attachment. Helping clients understand how trauma impacts their mind and body, and attachment relationships is an important part of healing. Through the therapeutic relationship, clients can become empowered to re-script and repair the wounds trauma has left on the mind, body, and spirit. Using play and expressive therapy, elements of EMDR, and attachment theory, this training will allow participants to refresh their understanding of trauma and learn ways to work with trauma in the room with both child and adult clients.
