Neurofeedback Efficacy withï adult offenders with personality difficulties and high risk of violence

This seminar will present the implementation of Neurofeedback in a secure psychiatric hospital and a high secure prison within the UK. The speakers work with people with complex, longstanding issues including a history of childhood trauma and neglect in addition to adult offending, self-harming and addictive behaviours. They will describe the cultural and systemic barriers that had to be overcome to offer Neurofeedback within forensic institutions in the UK and engage those who are resistant to participating in treatment. Finally, they will present a couple of case studies to demonstrate the benefits
that can be gained when these barriers are overcome.
