Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Used in combination with Neurofeedback Training to
provide each person with strategies that help them
identify cognitive and behavioral issues in their life and
develop methods to positively deal with these problems;
Individual and Group counseling sessions are used to
support the process of learning to desensitize traumatic
events through conversations with peers;
As brain patterns are normalized, the process is learned
to minimize the memories of traumatic events by
changing the memories themselves.
The Neurotraining Solution
Neurotraining (NT) offers a proven treatment for brain injury using operant and
classical conditioning. NT retrains each patient’s brainwaves to fit a more
normal pattern using positive and negative reinforcement. NT is done within a
cognitive-behavioral learning environment.
Brainwaves are monitored by a trained technician as
patients watch a movie. Over time NT helps to redirect
their brain patterns to more closely match patterns found
in an age-matched healthy population (e.g., using a
As in all operant conditioning training, no conscious effort
is required, but learning does play a part in long-term
retention. The planned NT intervention includes 50 – 60
half-hour sessions spread out over one year.
