PTSD / TRAUMA

PTSD, or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following the experience of or witnessing of a traumatic event. While some survivors may return to normal given time, others may have stress reactions that do not go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. These individuals may develop PTSD.

  • Reliving traumatic experiences

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Feelings of detachment or estrangement

  • Inability to function in daily life

PTSD is marked by both biological and psychological symptoms. PTSD is complicated by the fact that people with PTSD often may develop additional disorders such as depression, anxiety, and other problems of physical and mental health. The disorder is also associated with impairment of the person’s ability to function in social or family life, including occupational instability, marital problems and divorces, family discord, and difficulties in parenting.

The Neurovation Center is pleased to offer some of the most advanced, evidence-based trauma treatment techniques anywhere. We have developed an integrative approach unlike any other, with exceptional results. We cure trauma!

At the core of our ground-breaking technique is the integration of QEEG-guided neurofeedback  and EMDR . We have applied this innovative model extensively, and the results are noteworthy. Our staff has presented both nationally and internationally on using NFB and EMDR together, and this model is the focus of a research project at The Neurovation Center.

Understanding EMDR

The Neurofeedback Center provides Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Trauma. This service is offered by certified EMDR clinicians with advanced counseling experience.

EMDR is a neurobiological and cognitive therapy model used to treat symptoms of trauma. It is also used to treat a wide range of issues and diagnoses that are rooted in and related to psychological trauma, such as anxiety, depression or Bipolar. EMDR effectively reprocesses emotional and somatic reactivity that is associated with traumatic memories and experiences.

EMDR therapy is recognized as an evidence-based practice, scientifically evaluated, demonstrated to be effective and cited as an effective treatment in national and international treatment guidelines for organizations such as the US Department of Veteran Affairs, US Department of Defense, United Kingdom Department of Health and the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies. It has been recognized as the first line of treatment by the World Health Organization (2014), andThe American Psychiatric Association (APA) endorses EMDR as one of the most effective treatments for symptoms of acute and chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) These symptoms include anxiety, depression, concentration and focus issues, hypervigilance and somatizations associated with trauma.
