Restoring the Brain: Neurofeedback as an Integrative Approach describes the history and process by which neurofeedback has become an effective tool for treating many mental and behavioral health conditions. It explains how new brain research and improvements in imaging technology allow for a new conceptualization of the brain. It also discusses how biomedical factors can degrade brain functioning and cause a wide range of symptoms of mental disorders. The book is written in an accessible style for easy understanding and application to diagnosis and treatment.
Recent discoveries on the neuroelectrical properties of the brain illuminate the possibilities of combining innovative neurotherapy techniques with integrative medicine to achieve optimal brain function. This book’s case studies of clinical applications highlight neurofeedback’s effectiveness in treating autism, ADHD, and trauma, particularly PTSD. Integrative approaches are the future of health care and neurofeedback will play an increasingly significant role.
