All Kinds of News for April 08, 2020
SYMMETRY Neuro-Pathway Training is pleased to reveal that six new treatment programs and two new private practices have brought SYMMETRY’s qEEG neurofeedback systems and services in-house, adding the power of neuroscience to improve client outcomes and help their students feel better, faster. With brain health and neuroscience rising to the forefront of the industry through top research universities and outspoken leaders such as Bessel van der Kolk and Daniel Amen, SYMMETRY Neuro-Pathway Training gives the behavioral health community the ability to implement full neurofeedback protocols without needing a neuro-guru on staff or be forced to bring in an outside specialist or take kids off-site. Virtual training and case management services allow programs to keep control of their programming and environment while providing full qEEG neurofeedback to all their students.
Each of these 8 new customer-partners realizes that brain-mapping and neurofeedback are an integral part of any serious therapeutic program. The six treatment programs that are located throughout the United States and one in Costa Rica include Uinta Academy’s (Wellsville, Utah), New Summit Academy (Costa Rica), Hawk’s Landing (Bonners Ferry, Idaho), Brain ReIntegration Center (Paonia, Colorado), Waterfall Canyon Academy (Ogden, Utah), Edge Advance (Chicago, Illinois). Two new clinical private practices will be using qEEG Brain Mapping to help guide their therapeutic conversation and monitor the change of neural pathways with plans to incorporate qEEG Brain Mapping with clients looking to optimize brain health include - Be Still Counseling, Ashley Lauderdale, LPC and Beth Matenaer, founder of Think Boxing: Behind every symptom, there is a narrative and behind every narrative, there is a brain.
SYMMETRY neurofeedback systems make it possible for any program or behavioral health professional to utilize the power of neuroscience to help their clients thrive. The technology captures the data, sets the protocols and generates reports in a user-friendly, understandable format. Brain mapping provides valuable information to better understand why the students feel and behave as they do. Neurofeedback provides operant conditioning and literally, regulates the neuro pathways toward a healthier way. Research confirms the effectiveness of neurofeedback as a therapy for many conditions. It has been used successfully to treat ADD/ADHD, Addictions, Anxiety, Autism spectrum disorder, Behavioral disorders, Depression, PTSD, and TBI.
“I was inspired by the success I had with neurofeedback for my own son and I started this company to allow other students around the globe to experience the same success he found.” Partner programs find success and ease in setting up the program. Alice O’Driscoll, a behavioral health professional at Uinta Academy, says “I was surprised how easy it was to learn everything. The Neuro-PT boot camp was very informative and really prepared me for hands-on experience. The software was also surprisingly easy to get the hang of and then facilitate.” Training is a combination of online and virtual education. Programs and behavior health professionals will be doing qEEG brain maps and neurofeedback sessions on clients after 2 days.
There are 3 primary factors contributing to SYMMETRY's growth and the increased adoption rate of neurofeedback by behavioral health professionals and therapeutic programs. First is the technology. Specialized hardware and powerful software convert the neuroscience into relatable therapeutic jargon allowing the therapist to integrate the results into the therapeutic conversation, immediately. For therapeutic programs, neurofeedback sessions can be managed by a tech without requiring the time of a counselor or therapist. That’s a game-changer. Secondly, brain-health and neuroscience is now accepted as an essential part of mental health. Lastly, at least for a little while longer, it is a competitive advantage. Everyone has a choice of where they go to therapy or what treatment facility a family sends their child to. It’s a compassionate yet competitive field. Programs that offer neurofeedback are seen as leaders with a more progressive and complete approach to care. The neuroscience wave is happening now. Early adopters have been in the business for five years. Three years from now, neurofeedback will be a standard of behavioral health treatment. The providers and programs embracing neuroscience now will benefit. “The varying levels of therapeutic programming, behavioral learning styles and public school partnerships reveal how flexible neurofeedback is as an intervention and how the program is easy to administer in a school-based context.”
SYMMETRY Neuro-PT strives to help treatment programs, therapist's private practices and families that are experiencing changes due to the COVID-19 with @Home Training. This is a perfect time to incorporate neurofeedback training to curve academic gaps that may arise due to this uncertain time frame of social distancing. This is the time to start @Home Training with those students whose school has moved coursework online for the next few weeks or until the end of the school year. Students can experience positive change while they complete their studies remotely.
