Neurofeedback uses sound and visual frequencies to correct areas of hyper- (over) and hypo- (under) arousal in brain activity. Over time, neurofeedback sessions help correct symptoms of attention-deficit disorder, sleep disturbances, depression, and anxiety, which in turn helps correct vulnerabilities for relapse. Neurofeedback can also help improve people’s attention by improving concentration and one’s ability to focus, which is critical in early recovery. When neurofeedback treatment is complemented by an active mindfulness practice, results improve dramatically. Dr. Corbitt will use case examples to show how these modalities have worked. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
