Who Can Benefit From Neurofeedback?
Because Physiological overarousal underlies so many disorders, including posttraumatic states, helping individuals reduce their baseline states of arousal is a key aim in many mental health treatments. While neurofeedback has been proven to be effective in treating seizure disorders, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), learning disabilities, autism, and some forms of anxiety and mood disorders, there is little formal information about its utility in helping traumatized individuals. Some clinicians and patients report that neurofeedback has produced dramatic results, but those claims have not yet been subjected to careful scientific scrutiny. The Trauma Center is committed to exploring the capacity of neurofeedback to help traumatized individuals.
