"For those looking to educate themselves in the fields of trauma and brainwave training, this...serves as a robust guide to what is new in the field as well as the research and the patient stories that bring us to our contemporary understanding of the brain and how it heals itself... If you are particularly interested in how the brain learns to organize itself through neurofeedback, you will find Fisher's Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma to be a gem in the field, and the only book of its exact kind... [H]elps a new generation of patients and psychologists fully understand trauma and its effects on the brain and body." "The writing is excellent. [Sebern Fisher] helps explain why and how developmental trauma devastates and also why and how it is different than single-incident trauma or traditional post-traumatic stress... She has taken on the mountain - the human brain - and helped us scale it and understand the dragon of fear that resides within for those of us with developmental trauma... Because of her work - I know there's higher for me to climb." "This is a truly groundbreaking book. Sebern Fisher combines a mastery of neurofeedback with a real knack for applying neuroscience to do nothing less than lay the groundwork for a new, powerful, mind-brain approach to the most serious cases of developmentally-based psychological trauma. Even if you don't practice neurofeedback, the treasure of precious clinical insights it offers so deepen an appreciation of the brain-mind interaction, that you can't help but be changed by this book." -- Norman Doidge, MD, author of The Brain that Changes Itself "This book illustrates the masterful use of neurofeedback in psychotherapy for developmental trauma disorders. A must-read for all clinicians involved in the treatment of trauma spectrum disorders!" -- Ruth Lanius, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Research Unit, University of Western Ontario "This is the year, or perhaps the century, of the brain. What more can we ask than to have someone tell us how to change the brain in ways that improve our lives. In this book Sebern Fisher does just that. Over the many years of our many discussions about what works and what doesn't work in treating mental health problems, she has made a convincing argument that neurofeedback as a direct approach to changing behavioral patterns of the brain is an approach worth putting your money on. A truly wonderful, clinically insightful book." -- Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry and Director of the Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington


Working with the circuitry of the brain to restore emotional health and well-being.

Neurofeedback, a type of "brain training" that allows us to see and change the patterns of our brain, has existed for over 40 years with applications as wide-ranging as the treatment of epilepsy, migraines, and chronic pain to performance enhancement in sports.

Today, leading brain researchers and clinicians, interested in what the brain can tell us about mental health and well being, are also taking notice. Indeed, the brain's circuitry—its very frequencies and rhythmic oscillations—reveals much about its role in our emotional stability and resilience. Neurofeedback allows clinicians to guide their, clients as they learn to transform brain-wave patterns, providing a new window into how we view and treat mental illness.

In this cutting-edge book, experienced clinician Sebern Fisher keenly demonstrates neurofeedback’s profound ability to help treat one of the most intractable mental health concerns of our time: severe childhood abuse, neglect, or abandonment, otherwise known as developmental trauma.

When an attachment rupture occurs between a child and her or his primary caregiver, a tangle of complicated symptoms can set in: severe emotional dysregulation, chronic dissociation, self-destructive behaviors, social isolation, rage, and fear. Until now, few reliable therapies existed to combat developmental trauma. But as the author so eloquently presents in this book, by focusing on a client's brain-wave patterns and "training" them to operate at different frequencies, the rhythms of the brain, body, and mind are normalized, attention stabilizes, fear subsides, and, with persistent, dedicated training, regulation sets in.

A mix of fundamental theory and nuts-and-bolts practice, the book delivers a carefully articulated and accessible look at the mind and brain in developmental trauma, what a “trauma identity” looks like, and how neurofeedback can be used to retrain the brain, thereby fostering a healthier, more stable state of mind. Essential clinical skills are also fully covered, including how to introduce the idea of neurofeedback to clients, how to combine it with traditional psychotherapy, and how to perform assessments.

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Important information for all people working with Developmental Trauma - a hugely significant book 1. September 2014
Von Betty - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am in recovery from Developmental Trauma and Dissociative Identity Disorder and reading this book has been so helpful for me. It explains why I haven't seen any real progress in reduction in PTSD symptoms even though I've had very good therapy. What Fisher is sharing is important information for anyone working with folks with developmental trauma. Don't let not having access to neurofeedback put you off if that's the case, the information in this book is still very important, and you can achieve much brain training by reading Les Fehmi's book "The Open-Focus Brain: Harnessing the Power of Attention to Heal Mind and Body" and doing the exercises on your own at home. I have seen many of the changes that Fisher details that clients experience with neurofeedback with doing Fehmi's Open Focus exercises, so don't write off Fisher's book as a therapist or client if you don't think that neurofeedback is a possibility for you.

This book helped me to understand why I've seen a massive reduction in PTSD symptoms in seven weeks of Open Focus brain training that I haven't seen in months of therapy. It helped me to understand that with these symptoms, direct work with the limbic system is so important, because that's where the reactivity is. It helped me to understand that everything I've done in the past that calmed my Autonomic Nervous System wasn't sustained, because the ANS is controlled by the Central Nervous System, and my hugely over-active amygdala kept setting off the stress response again and pushing me back into sympathetic nervous system dominance once again. Fisher's writing also helped me to understand why after weeks of success brain training my brain is now rebelling big time - having never experienced "normalcy", my brain is terrified of it. Now that I know what's happening, I will be able to address it, so this was hugely valuable information for me.

Something else important that I gained from this book was an understanding of just how much of my challenge comes from the fact that my mother suffering from unresolved Developmental Trauma herself. I've been focusing mostly on the abuse, but this book shows so powerfully how much we are affected my our mother's brainwave patterns, particularly in the first couple of years of life.

I skipped the technical bits on neurofeedback because I don't have access to it where I live, but I still got so much out of the book. Fisher's approach is so wise and compassionate, and her client stories are very inspiring. She really shows how so much of what we consider to be personality traits or mind is actually brain activity, and how if you train the brain to fire differently, so many of the challenging reactions just fall away. You no longer need to wrestle with yourself to change behaviour, the behaviour simply falls away.

This book contains so much important information. Many, many thanks to Sebern Fisher for all that you are bringing into the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Clinical Guide 2. Mai 2014
Von Lawrence Edwards, Ph.D. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I highly recommend Fisher’s new book for all clinicians working with people who have suffered developmental trauma, and especially for neurofeedback and biofeedback therapists. This text is also very informative for anyone interested in understanding the profound changes that neurofeedback training empowers the mind-brain-body-self to create through this unique type of self-regulation training.
Fisher brings decades of clinical skills and insights gained from working with children and adults suffering from some of the most debilitating and intractable disorders, made all the more challenging since they have so often been caused by the abuse and abandonment inflicted by parents and caretakers. Through the many cases of developmental trauma she discusses we see the extremes of dysregulation in the brain and nervous system. The subtitle of Fisher’s book, Calming The Fear Driven Brain, points directly to the critical issue that we as neurofeedback/biofeedback clinicians address so uniquely and powerfully with these modalities.
The extremely disruptive nature of chronic fear on the brain, autonomic nervous system, endocrine system, and really the entire body, in addition to how it distorts interpersonal relations and one’s relationship to oneself, is painfully apparent in individuals who have been through abuse, abandonment and other forms of violent trauma. Fisher makes the point that fear plays a major role in many psychological and physical disorders. She discusses her own discovery of neurofeedback training as an intervention that can alter the circuitry of the brain in ways that no other therapy she had employed in decades of clinical work could do and led to amazing positive outcomes for her patients.
In a very engaging and clear style Fisher leads the reader through the multiple layers of connectivity between brain, body, and self. She draws on Allan Shore’s work on the importance of the caring attuned mother for facilitating the infant’s development of affect regulation and how the right orbital frontal cortex plays a central role in this development. Failure at this early stage of development sets up a life-long pattern of inner chaos and dysregulation. Talk therapies and medications haven’t been effective in changing these patterns. Neurofeedback and biofeedback offer the means for empowering the brain to gain control of its functions in ways that no other modality provides.
Neurofeedback clinicians will be especially interested in Fisher’s discussions of neurophysiology and the development of EEG training protocols using the 10-20 system of sites and their correlations with symptoms and underlying dysregulation in brain regions associated with the individual’s functions being disrupted.
Fisher also broaches subjects rarely discussed in biofeedback and neurofeedback: transference and counter-transference. These critical interpersonal dynamics related to the patient’s projections onto the therapist (transference) and the therapist’s projections onto the client (counter-transference) impact the therapeutic bond between patient and clinician. They can either support a successful outcome or lead to a failure not due to the biofeedback or neurofeedback training protocols, but to the failed bond between patient and clinician. This is especially important in working with individuals with developmental trauma because what they suffered has its origin in failed interpersonal bonding. But transference/counter-transference are present in all therapeutic encounters and clinicians need to be very conscious of these in order to enhance their chances for successful outcomes for their patients. Kudos to Fisher for bringing greater awareness of transference and counter-transference to biofeedback clinicians.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best books I have read on the topic 2. Juni 2014
Von Amelia - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I am not a professional in the field of neurofeedback or psychology. But I have read most of the books available on neurofeedback and I strongly recommend this book as one of the 2 or 3 very best. Though the title might suggest that this book is aimed toward working with traumatized children, it has much to recommend it to the general reader. This book has one of the best introductions to the topic and it also has compelling case histories. The author is open minded and fair in her evaluations of various approaches to therapy. I am so glad I found this book!
I have only one criticism, and it is more a criticism of the book designer than the author. The author frequently points forward or backward in her writing to a certain chapter - which she specifies by number rather than title of the chapter. However, the chapter numbers are not given in the header or footer of the pages, so the reader has to go all the way back to the table of contents to see where she is referring to. A simple inclusion of the chapter numbers along with the titles would make this book easier to read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clear that Sebern is a therapist 21. April 2014
Von James R. Flowers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Good information but a few factual errors on the neuroanatomy. An example was referring to the central sulcus as separating the two hemispheres when I think she was referring to the longitudinal fissure. However, this doesn't take away from the rich practical information regarding developmental trauma and neurofeedback.

It is obvious that Sebern has solid experiences and her clear and unassuming writing style makes reading the information a pleasure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A seminal book in the field and a cry for humane treatment of children and adolescents 10. Mai 2014
Von Centerpoint - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read many texts lately on neuroscience and developmental disorders, and this is the finest work I have encountered. Just reading the opening chapter will change your view of a child's needs, especially those diagnosed with RAD and other "disorders" that I have come to understand as attachment breaches and disregulation of the brain. Fisher writes with intense compassion, breathtaking honesty, and professional precision. If you only read one text in this area, this is it.
