Neurofeedback uses computerized electronic measurement devices placed on the surface of the head to monitor brain wave activity.
Through guided therapist techniques, clients are able to shift their brain waves to a state more compatible with focus and mental performance. The shift occurs because of feedback (audio and visual) given to the brain to reward healthier patterns of functioning. Neurofeedback is safe and painless and often produces lasting results without side effects. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is an important treatment component to neurofeedback. For example, when treating Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), clients learn better organizational skills and stronger work habits. Cognitive Behavior Therapy helps people with ADHD improve work and school performance while achieving enhanced interpersonal relationships.
