Keynote Presentation

Rhythm, Synchrony & Embodiment: From Neurofeedback To Psychodrama

Bessel van der Kolk

Presentation Detail

Psychodrama is a therapeutic approach that can be used effectively in trauma treatment; it can help patients begin to reach and heal wounds in their subconscious mind that can be difficult to access with traditional talk therapy. The process uses role-playing to allow patients to voice what they needed or wanted to do in past stressful situations – but couldn’t. In this presentation, Dr van der Kolk will look at neurofeedback and psychodrama in the treatment of trauma.
