Sebern Fisher, an alumna of Antioch University New England’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling (MA) program, spoke to students in the Department of Applied Psychology on Tuesday, April 14 from 9 am to noon about her new book, Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain.

Fisher’s new book, published by W. W. Norton & Company, explores the synthesis of Neurofeedback — a powerful modality for retraining the brain — with psychotherapy, specifically in the treatment of developmental trauma and attachment disorder. However, the book serves a wider purpose – it is a first-of-its-kind guide in the use of Neurofeedback in a psychotherapy practice, and it provides an in-depth review and re-framing of cutting-edge neuroscience in relation to trauma. This book provides compelling insight into the brain-mind interaction.

In his foreword to the book, internationally recognized trauma expert Bessel van der Kolk, MD, praises Fisher as “an immensely experienced neurofeedback practitioner [and] the right person to teach us how to integrate it into clinical practice.” Filled with illuminating client stories, powerful clinical insights, and plenty of clinical “how to,” she accomplishes just that, offering readers a compelling look at exactly how this innovative model can be used to engage the brain to find peace and to heal.
