Technology that Heals: The Benefits of Neurofeedback-Enhanced Psychotherapy

February 7, 2020 at 8:30am4:30pm

Nancy Cantor Warehouse, 4th Floor, Community Room

Technology is shaping our world in unprecedented ways and some technological advances will inevitably change the way we think of health and human services. Although we often discuss evidence based and scientifically valid methods of treatment in mental health, we generally do not discuss technology’s potential impact on the way we conceptualize and innovate psychotherapy and other mental health services. Integrating neurofeedback with psychotherapy is an example of how technology can be used to positively improve mental health services, a growing need in our increasingly complex world.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify key ethical issues in bio-medical technological innovation and apply this to mental health
  2. Describe key applications of this model across mental health and in the context of trauma-informed care
  3. Identify ways in which technology can help the mental health field optimize services and how practitioners can invest in professional development related to technology and neuroscience innovations
