Course Description:
Sebern has been working with traumatized people for over 35 years, first as the Clinical Director of a residential treatment facility for severely disturbed adolescents, then in talk therapy with adult trauma survivors and for the past 20 years in neurofeedback integrated with psychotherapy with both adults and adolescents. She is trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and was the first to bring both attachment theory and Dialectical Behavior Therapy into milieu treatment. She learned about neurofeedback when a friend asked her to try it for herself. As a result of her experience, she became convinced that helping her patients learn to regulate their brains and to lower ambient arousal (fear, shame, and rage) would be critical. Her two decades of experience with neurofeedback and psychotherapy integration led to the publication of her book, Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear- driven Brain published in 2014 by Norton. Sebern maintains a private practice in Northampton, Massachusetts and consults and trains worldwide.
