Introduction to Neurofeedback Training for PTSD

Post traumatic stress disorder is defined as an anxiety disorder that some people get after experiencing or witnessing an event “outside the range of usual human experience”.  People with post traumatic stress re-live the trauma in their mind, body and/or sometimes even visualize it happening over again.  A traumatized person may begin efforts to avoid thoughts, feelings or conversations about the event.  He or she will often engage in a very busy life, because it is during idle moments that intrusive thoughts and memories haunt them.  Triggers that originally frightened them may begin to generalize to other things and activities, which causes their world to shrink.  They usually become increasingly cautious and phobic.  Neurofeedback, specifically the alpha-theta protocol, is a training process that has been scientifically-proven to improve post traumatic stress disorder.  Alpha-theta brings on a deep calm witness state where people can often observe or think about their dislodged memories in a safe dream-like state.  With alpha-theta, clients train their brain to let go of negative response patterns that are based on old or false beliefs so they can enjoy life with a new and healthier perspective. In addition, the brain becomes receptive to complementary psychological therapies that might otherwise have created avoidant or defensive reactions.
