Information about Neurofeedback For Social Workers & Psychologists
When considering the reasons for slow or no progress in psychotherapy it may be helpful to think about an inflexible brain. Studies have shown that clients with hyper-arousal patterns in the Cingulate Gyrus have a very hard time adapting and creating new strategies for living in spite of the best efforts of their therapists. Excessive alpha wave activity in the left frontal area makes recovery from even mild depression a challenge. A brain map produced via a quantitative electroencephalogram may pinpoint the reasons for the lack of progress. Neurofeedback treatment can lead to a more flexible brain, and thus a brain more available to psychotherapeutic treatment.
Hudson Valley Center for Neurofeedback offers neurofeedback therapy to adults and children challenged with ADHD, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Brain Injury, Depression, PTSD, PMS and Sleep Disorders. Neurofeedback therapy has also been effective for children interested in improving study skills, concentration and sports performance.
