Sebern Fisher, author, therapist, and mentor, has been integrating neurofeedback and psychotherapy into the treatment of those with developmental trauma for the last twenty years.
Once you learn the neuroscience of neglect, dissociation, repression and trauma, your treatment approaches, including protocol selection will become more deeply informed.

The Nature of Forgetting: Neurofeedback and Psychotherapy in the Treatment of Dissociative Disorders

6 Live webinar lectures
Feb 16/17 4pm EST/8am AEDT

Mar 22/23 5pm EST/8am AEDT

This live webinar series will explore the latest neuroscience research in developmental trauma and discuss how its findings challenge the prevailing belief that dissociation, repression, resistance and regression are primarily psychological defense mechanisms, at least in those with histories of neglect and abuse in childhood. We will instead address them as they are — habitual firing patterns in the brain that form in response to survival threats early in life. When there are enough fearful stimuli the brain tends to return to its earliest patterns of protection.

The neuroscience of trauma is clearly indicating that we must change these habitual firing patterns in the brain. Presently the only way we know to do this is with neurofeedback. We will review protocols that help those who have never experienced a sense of self and other to develop this capacity, primarily but not solely through affect regulation. And we will look at how all of this plays out in the therapy relationship, particularly with the “treatment-resistant” patients. We will discuss why these patients need highly skilled therapists who understand the brain dynamics underlying interpersonal ones.

A Message from Sebern Fisher during this COVID-19 pandemic

These are challenging times indeed. I just want to take a moment for all of us, trauma therapists and trauma patients together to breathe and to quiet the arousal that inevitably arises under the threat posed by the virus.

Let me first speak to those of you who are dealing with the aftermath of  histories of devastating childhoods. You know that your fear systems are going to go into high alert. This is the way this goes in your brain. Not your fault. Not a flaw in your character. It is the “isness” of developmental trauma.  You may even experience a return or heightening of symptoms. Don’t be discouraged. It’s your amygdala trying to activate you for what it “thinks” is for your survival. It is not to be believed! If there is an inner child, it’s your amygdala and it needs your best adult guidance. You know these patterns in yourself. You need to eat wisely, sleep well, exercise, stay in touch with good people, avoid alarming TV or anything alarming, monitor your news intake, in short do everything you can to enhance your immune system. This is the worst time to engage in risky behaviors of any kind, even when the pressure builds up to do so. I do understand what people with developmental trauma endure. I know how rough it is. Please be gentle with yourself and with all those around you and even if it’s the first time ever, practice self care.  And know that although you can feel so dreadfully alone, you’re not. There are millions of us.

Everything I’m reading suggests that early action is the best action to slow the spread of the virus. As a trauma therapist you are likely feeling a lot of mixed feelings and opposing instincts. We are in this field to help people who suffer terribly and of course these are times that will inflame the terror and disregulation our patients already try so desperately to manage. They will need you. But you yourselves must stay well to help them. Take every precaution -those that are becoming part of our daily litany-  and do as many of your therapy sessions as possible while observing social distancing. It hurts to even write much less to do it.

For those of you doing neurofeedback- which I certainly hope is most of you- you can’t do NF and observe social distance.  Let your patients know that if they’ve been training for awhile, their brains will remember. Even if regulating effects don’t completely hold, their brains remember. They won’t lose what they know. It will return. For many it can be helpful to visualize the screen and recall the beeps when they feel the stress rising.  As a colleague of mine once said, “The brain is devoted to its own regulation. It has to be.” If they are new, their brains could slip back into old patterns.  Help them remember during  the break that their brains were able to train, that the problem is this glitch in their brains and that you will both be back on this as soon as it is safe to do so.

Those of you who own your own systems can bring them home too. Train regularly. Lowering stress reduces inflammation and will enhance your immune system. This will help you and everyone around you!

Please stay healthy and stay sane. The world needs every one of us to do this well.

Blessings

Sebern
