Many psychological conditions possess a trauma basis. Using psychophysiological modalities to study, evaluate, assess and train the neurobiological substrates could prove key to enhancing psychological healing. This workshop addresses case studies in trauma and PTSD involving the integration of qEEG, neurofeedback, biofeedback and other modalities. EEGs, stress profiles and recorded training data are presented to illustrate how psychophysiological interventions are important not only to assess, but also to provide optimal, evidence-based outcomes.
