46th Annual International Conference

Neuromodulation and Interventions for Trauma
in the Time of Coronavirus

January 22-23, 2021

with a special screening of Gunkelmentary on January 21st

recordings available for 45 days

We are delighted to announce the 2021 NRBS Online Conference: Trauma in the Time of Coronavirus. The study of trauma has made it clear that traditional therapeutic approaches (e.g., psychotherapy, psychopharmacology) are often insufficient to alleviate the symptoms stemming from a trauma history. This knowledge is of particular relevance as we face having to help the millions of people who will need to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Aimed at and organized for providers and consumers who are interested in learning about psycho-physiologically based interventions that can be helpful for addressing symptoms stemming from trauma, we have arranged presentations from speakers who bring research, practice, and theory together.

Gunkelmentary

Screening & Open Discussion
with Jay Gunkelman

January 21

5PM – 8PM

Although we can’t be together, we are kicking off the Annual Conference with Dinner and a Movie. The “Gunkelmentary” is a full-length documentary that chronicles the history and development of the art of EEG recording and interpretation over the last 50 years. The story is told through the eyes of Jay Gunkelman, EEG Tech, and his many students and colleagues who have been instrumental in the evolution of the art and craft of EEG analysis and interpretation. From the early days when EEG was considered an “epiphenomeon,” to the current state of EEG analysis as used in applied and clinical neuroscience. This documentary is of particular relevance to people interested in using an analysis of the EEG to guide psycho-physiological interventions for optimizing brain function and alleviating symptoms of mental health related problems. Jay will join us for a discussion following the showing.

Affect Regulation & Neurofeedback: The Trauma Key

Description

On a rainy afternoon in March 25 years ago, I entered the field of neurofeedback through training my brain. I realized somewhat slowly that after training I’d lost a background fear I had lived in my entire life. With less fear I could relate more spontaneously, I could think less tangentially, I could quiet impulse and I could dance. I could in fact begin to organize a self. I’ll share the highlights of this exploration and some thoughts about its implications for the treatment of trauma.

Objective 1: Participant will be able to describe why affect regulation is the key to trauma treatment

Objective 2: Participant will be able to explain the relationship between arousal and affect

Objective 3: Participant will be able to name three protocols that address affect regulation

Sebern Fisher, MA, LMH, BCN

Sebern attended Smith College, Columbia University (including the Film School) and received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Massachusetts in 1976. She graduated from Antioch New England with a Masters in Counseling Psychology in 1978.Sebern was one of the founders of the Family Planning Council of Western Massachusetts (now Tapestry Health) which began with one rural clinic in 1973. She started her work there as a family planning counselor and by the time she left that organization in 1979, she was the Director of Training and Education. During her tenure, she mounted three major conferences: Men, Women and Rape in 1976 featuring Susan Brownmiller, Ann Burgess and Nicholas Groff; On Sex Education and the Family in 1977; and the third, Women on the Conditions of Women with Anne Alonzo, Marsha Linehan and Dusty Miller in 1979.From 1980 to 1997, Sebern was the clinical director of a residential treatment program for severely disturbed adolescents in western Massachusetts. At that time, it was considered to be one of the best programs in the state and the treatment outcomes were, at best, troubling. In an effort to better understand these children and to enhance treatment outcomes, she introduced attachment theory in the mid-eighties, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy in 1991. Her center became the first in the nation to adopt and implement DBT in a residential milieu.Sebern was introduced to neurofeedback in the spring of 1996, when her friend, Kathy Zilberman asked her if she would be her first ‘subject’. She recounts the experience of a weekend of neurofeedback training in the introduction to her book, Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the
Fear-driven Brain. When she went into private practice in 1997, she began to integrate neurofeedback with psychodynamic psychotherapy in the treatment of her traumatized patients. Her book, published by Norton in 2014 (now also available on Audible) is a direct result of what she learned in working with her own brain and with those of her patients.Sebern maintains a part-time private practice focused on the treatment of adults suffering the aftermath of neglect and assault in childhood in Northampton, Massachusetts. She trains and consults both nationally and internationally in the use of neurofeedback in the treatment of developmental trauma, on the central role of fear in those who have suffered these histories and on the integration of psychotherapy and neurofeedback. She has written and presented two webinars: the first 16-part webinar was called Training Trauma: New Thinking, New Treatment, New Challenges and covered the impacts of developmental trauma on the brain and the integration of neurofeedback with psychotherapy. The second, The Nature of Forgetting: The Treatment of Dissociation, Repression and Regression with Psychotherapy and Neurofeedback was presented in early 2020.She is the 2013 recipient of the Joel Lubar Award for Contributions to the Field of Neurofeedback, as well as the recipient of the 2017 M.B. Sterman Career Achievement Award and 2020 Fellows Award from the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research. In addition to her book, she has published numerous professional articles on neurofeedback and psychotherapy.

COVID Recovery: The Long Hauler EEG

Description

Covid-19 “long-haulers” are people who have not recovered from their Covid-19 symptoms weeks or even months after first experienceing their symptons. Post viral syndrome, or post Covid-19 syndrome refers to the constellation of symptoms long-haulers are experiencing. People with more severe infections might experience residual effects not just in their lungs, but in their heart, brain, immune system and elsewhere. This presentation will look at emerging information about the brains of long-haulers through examining EEG data. Suggestions for possible interventions to aid recovery will be offered.

Objective 1: Discuss how COVID-19 is reflected in the EEG

Objective 2: Discuss how ischemia is reflected in the EEG

Objective 3: Describe physiological interventions aimed at decreasing residual symptoms of COVID-19 based on EEG interpretation.

A Dialogue: How Can Neurofeedback Enhance Trauma Therapy?

Description

In what is expected to be highly informative and interesting session, Drs. Lanius and van der Kolk will meet to discuss their views of trauma and trauma treatment. They will cover such topics as emerging biomarkers in the EEG and fMRI analyses of trauma victims. This discussion will include the cognitive, emotional and behavioral symptoms often seen in people with trauma histories that are associated with these brain biomarkers. They will then proceed to a discussion of psychophysiological interventions that, based on research and their experience, are seen as part of the therapeutic armamentarium needed to address the symptoms associated with complex trauma.

Objective 1: Discuss biomarkers in the EEG/fMRI that relate to trauma

Objective 2: Describe a method of neurofeedback training that has been shown to help ameliorate trauma symptoms

Objective 3: Discuss the role of the Default Mode Network in trauma

Bessel van der Kolk, M.D.

Bessel A. van der Kolk M.D. is a pioneer clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of posttraumatic stress. His work uniquely integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic, somatic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

His #1 New York Times Science best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including body work, psychodrama, mindfulness techniques, parts work, yoga, and neurofeedback, Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma. He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater and EMDR.

He is founder of the Trauma Center (now the Trauma Research Foundation) in Boston, MA; past President of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He regularly teaches at universities and hospitals around the world.

Psychoimmunology: The Effect of Stress & Trauma on the Brain & Body

Description

Repeated stress and physical and emotional trauma has long been known to impact bodily systems and processes, such as musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal, hormone and reproductive systems and can lead to chronic inflammation. Studies have shown that stress has many effects on the nervous system and can cause structural changes in different parts of the brain (Yaribeygi et. al, 2017), which can contribute to cognitive, behavioral, and psychological difficulties. Stress is on the rise and according to the American Institute of Stress (2019), with 55% of Americans reporting stress during the day. 60% of adults in the U.S. have experienced some type of traumatic event at least once in their lives (National Center for PTSD, 2019). There are clinically effective natural ways to protect the brain from stress and support the nervous system including nutrition, biofeedback, and neurofeedback

Objective 1: Psychologists will describe the impact of stress stress and traumon the brain and body

Objective 2: Psychologists will understand the the connection between stress and inflammation and its impact on brain health and immune function

Objective 3: Psychologists will illustrate brain-based therapies and techniques to reduce the effect of stress and trauma on the brain and body

Concussion/TBI as a Full Body Experience: Impact of History on Treatment Planning

Description

Concussion/TBI is more common than we think. And the effects are not confined to the brain. Prevalence of outdated beliefs complicates treatment planning and diagnosis. The DSM 5 criteria are inadequate, if not confusing. Data supporting history of trauma is important for legal proceedings.

Objective 1: List 3 diagnostic signs of Concussion/TBI.

Objective 2: Describe how to obtain History taking clues for early childhood concussive events.

Objective 3: Explain how to prepare for client deposition in post-whiplash or other injury case.

Mary Lee Esty LCSW-C, Ph.D. BCN, BC

Mary Lee Esty, LCSW-C, Ph.D., has been in private practice in the Washington DC area following biofeedback training at the Menninger Clinic in 1989. Clinical applications of Menninger thermal biofeedback led to the creation of the on-going Mind-Body Skills Group training program at the Center for Mind-Body Medicine. Use of the Menninger Alpha-Theta application eventually led to research with the Flexyx Neurotherapy System (FNS) of Len Ochs. That research experience created wonderful clinical experiences and a path to an ongoing body of research data focusing on TBI and PTSD. In 1996 Dr. Esty was asked to accept a grant from the new NIH Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine for use of FNS in the treatment of TBI. Pre/Post- evaluations were done by a Kessler Rehabilitation Hospital neuropsychologist. (Jrl of Head Trauma Rehabilitation 2001) Subsequent research for TBI/PTSD has been focused on wounded veterans. Those results are published in the Journals of Neurotherapy, Pain, Brain Injury, Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, and several in Military Medical Research. Recent study data were presented at the Military Health System Research Symposium. This recent study was done in collaboration with the Traumatic Injury Research Program (TIRP) at the military medical school at Walter Read in Bethesda. After years of seeing clients who were mislabeled with DSM diagnoses, but whose histories of post-concussion/TBI were either not appreciated or ignored, Dr. Esty decided to create a brochure about post-concussion symptoms for her clients. That brochure grew to 500 pages. Following some biblio- surgery, Conquering Concussion was born with co-author Carol Shifflett. Conquering Concussion received awards including the Kirkus 100 Best Books of 2014, Non-Fiction Authors Gold Winner, and the Blue Ink Starred Review. Currently Dr. Esty provides pro-bono treatment to veterans with TBI &/or PTSD continuing the mission of improving treatment outcomes, and hopefully adding to the large body of research support to elevate the discipline of Neurotherapy into its rightful place in our health care system.

Objective 1: List at least 3 mental health conditions and client populations well suited for synergistic trauma and attachment therapy (STAT™) treatment progress.

Objective 2: Identify at least three mental health modalities that pair or integrate well with NF.

Objective 3: Explain how NF can best be integrated into mental health treatment for child and adolescent mental health treatment in a clinic setting.

Lark Eshleman, Ph.D.

Dr. Eshleman is trained and highly trained in therapeutic practices of Theraplay, EMDR, EEG Biofeedback (Neurofeedback), Attachment and Narrative Therapy, Trauma Art Narrative Therapy (TANT), family and individual psychotherapy, and school psychology for children with significant trauma and attachment issues. Her work has brought her into therapeutic contact with children and families who have suffered the emotional, psychological and neurologically damaging effects of war and other forms of organized violence. In 1997 she was instrumental in working with Rotary International, and the Rotary Club of Lancaster, PA to develop a treatment and professional training center in Croatia after the Balkan war. From 1997 through 2000 she volunteered more than 10 months at the center. She worked on a New Orleans/ Houston base project called “Welcome Home” in which Children returning to New Orleans schools were screened and referred for on site programs to help them deal with the extreme stresses in their lives due to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and on trauma- relief teams for other natural and man made emergencies. Recently she returned to Singapore to teach her program to professionals who will be addressing the trauma of children orphaned in natural disasters, such as the earthquakes in China 2008. Her publications include, Healing Emotional Trauma: Treating the Wounded Child, 3rd ed (2009), a community based response program for children who have been affected by war an organized violence; a video, RAD: Solving the Puzzle (2001), which received a national award in the science and medicine division of the Telly Awards. Larks book, Becoming a Family: Promoting Healthy Attachments with You Adopted Child (Taylor Publishing Company) was published in December of 2003 to excelled reviews, and was updated and re-published in paperback in 2005. She has been a contributor to family and professional magazines and journals, and was recently highlighted in the 3rd edition of the 2009 textbook The Development of Children published by Worth Publishers.

What Do We Know Now & What Do We Need to Learn?

Description

The presenters for this confernce are considered leaders in their field. They have presented various viewpoints that offer complimenary and differing opinions. This type of exchange is what helps to enhance learning and expands our ability to promote healing. This panel will consider the final questions of this conference; to address the challenges that lie before us as a profession; to engage attendees to participate in healing those who have experienced trauma.

Objective 1: Describe two therapeutic interventions which facilitate traditional tratment approaches to help those with trauma

Objective 2: Discuss the importance of understanding trauma in relationship to the limitations of the DSM

Objective 3: Explain how trauma is perpetuated in underserved communities

Panel with Sebern Fisher, Beth Barol and Roseann Cappana-Hodge

For Sebern and Roseann bios, see prior presentations. Beth Barol, Ph.D., LSW; My passion for social work started in the footsteps of my father, who spent most of his career working within the Settlement House Movement in Philadelphia. I saw him do his part fighting oppression, and I set out in high school with a mission to do the same. My own engagement in this mission over the past 38+ years has been in the service of people with intellectual and developmental disability, especially those with “”challenging behaviors.”” These men, women, and children of all backgrounds are among the most oppressed and voiceless members of our society. If we can find a way to help them be heard, we will be facilitating a climate where every voice in society is heard. We need this now more than ever.

My work has taken me from being a live-in house parent to being a facility director to being the clinical director for the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Retardation Statewide Training and Technical Assistance Initiative, as well as a consultant at home and internationally. I endeavor to use these experiences in my teaching to help bridge the gap between theory and practice.
