Orem, UT: STRiV, a transitional living and social/emotional/academic support program for young adults, recently expanded their clinical services to include neurofeedback. In addition to their one-on-one mentoring, executive skills coaching, and in-house therapeutic support, STRiV is now incorporating advanced neurofeedback technology to create personalized brain training protocols. For many, this intervention can help the brain better regulate, often alleviating unwanted symptoms and behaviors.
Neuro-pathway training (neurofeedback) is a series of non-invasive, medication-free, neurofeedback sessions created from the Quantitative Electroencephalogram (qEEG), or “brain map.” Brainwave activity is measured by sensors on the scalp while the client watches a video and receives real-time feedback in the form of visual and audio rewards. The goal of all neurofeedback is to help the brain improve regulation by producing healthier patterns.
STRiV’s Executive Director Dr. Clark Hammond shared, “Many of our students have struggled with attention and focus problems, anxiety, or other emotional challenges. We want to provide a variety of entry points that can build upon traditional individual and group talk therapy. After reviewing the research on neurofeedback, we believe this can be a powerful addition for some of our clients.”
Research has shown neurofeedback to be effective for individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, memory issues, and more.
