Workshop outline

This workshop will explore the benefits of using electroencephalograms (EEG) to clinically assess clients with complex and chronic trauma related symptoms. The participants will learn how different brainwave patterns relate to different symptoms and how these findings can inform psychological treatment. Preliminary data identifying dysfunctional brain patterns underlying Post-Traumatic Stress symptoms and data supporting the effectiveness of Neurofeedback interventions aimed to reduce symptom distress and improve executive functioning will be presented.

Workshop program

  • Introduction into EEG assessment: equipment and process
  • Brainwaves and brain states
  • How EEG assessment can inform clinical practice
  • Overview of the current research into trauma and EEG: the most frequent dysfunctional EEG patterns associated with PTSD
  • Use of Neurofeedback to reduce symptom distress and improve cognitive functioning: case studies
