Course Breakdown:

Part 1: Exploring the impact of developmental injuries on affect regulation

Developmental trauma survivors are highly over-represented in suicide rates in the globally. The first step in considering a new approach to treatment is to recognise the impact of abuse and neglect on the developing brain. Neuroscience research finds that neglect and abuse, physical, sexual, and/or emotional, impact every major structure and network of the developing brain.

You will explore this research and the implications on the area of affect regulation. Affect regulation is the primary goal of all therapies and close to impossible for survivors of developmental trauma. You will look at how fear circuits fire and kindle in the traumatised brain. Then you will focus on the impact on the Default Mode Network (DMN), the network in the human brain that makes a sense of Self and Other possible. You will grasp a basic but comprehensive understanding of how these traumatised brains function and malfunction, particularly in the domain of affect regulation.

Part 2: Applying the teachings of neurofeedback in the therapeutic process

Neurofeedback addresses the fear and reactivity, which runs the lives of those with developmental trauma, at its source. The absence of a reliable DMN means that there is no dependable sense of self, and of others. Clearly this has major implications for psychotherapy. When fear and reactivity are quieted, the DMN begins to come online.

Here you will learn how neurofeedback works and study the arousal/regulation model of neurofeedback. Abandonment, neglect and abuse, often at the hands of primary caretakers, hijack the arousal systems of these brains, leaving them at the mercy of overactivated fear circuitry. You will master how to deliver neurofeedback-informed therapy to help these brains regain their inherent capacity for self-regulation and organisation. For a Self to form there must be an Other.
