Bessel van der Kolk, world-renowned trauma researcher and Senior Fellow of The Meadows, recently published the results of his Randomized Controlled Study of Neurofeedback, for those suffering chronic symptoms of developmental trauma. He showed a 40 percent increase in executive function in patients after 24 sessions of Neurofeedback training. Their improvements suggest that the patients were learning how to quiet the habitual firing of fear circuitries in their brains, providing them with an increased capacity to make good decisions. The study protocol mirrors the protocol that we have been using at The Meadows and the Claudia Black Young Adult Center. Like Dr. van der Kolk, we are seeing significant emotional regulation and increases in executive function. We also use the same Neurofeedback system that Dr. van der Kolk used, the EEGer™.
