The benefits of brain training: Using neurofeedback with traumatised children and their families
with JACQUELINE TOW
Webinar Fee: $90
Live Webinar Outline
This webinar will be focused on the use of neurofeedback when working with children and their families, who are impacted by multiple layers of trauma. Although this is in the context of a service for refugee clients, the core concepts will be widely applicable for many other client populations. Neurofeedback can be a useful part of treatment for children experiencing symptoms of trauma including sleep disturbance, attention and executive function deficits, and emotion regulation difficulties.
The following topics will be addressed through a case presentation and discussion:
- How neurofeedback as a concept can be explained.
- The usefulness of neurofeedback for children and young people impacted by trauma.
- The importance of assessment.
- Challenges in using neurofeedback with children and their families.
- How neurofeedback fits with other therapeutic modalities used with this population.
Jacqueline completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Speech Pathology) at the University of Sydney in 2010. She then worked in regional and rural NSW across a variety of settings from acute hospital and rehabilitation to Community Health. She also volunteered in casework with people seeking asylum.
Through working with children in Kenya in a range of capacities, Jacqueline saw both the impact of, and the potential for recovery from childhood trauma. She then studied a Master of Counselling & Applied Psychotherapy at Torrens University (Jansen Newman Institute), which included both individual and group psychotherapy.
Jacqueline works at STARTTS as a neurofeedback counsellor with children, adolescents and their families. She is passionate about the rights of children, and the rights of people with refugee/asylum seeker experience. As well as using neurofeedback, Jacqueline regularly draws from Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy and Solutions Focused Therapy approaches. She is also influenced by systemic thinking, and believes that working with the family is often just as crucial as working with a child/young person.
Jacqueline is BCIA-A certified as a neurofeedback practitioner.
