For the past 40 years, The Meadows Model has been treating trauma and addiction, using both Pia Mellody’s Model on Codependency and cutting edge trauma interventions to provide safe container while patients learn to re-regulate and traverse the autonomic shifts needed within their nervous systems that allow for healing to occur. Because meaning follows physiology, one of our main goals is utilization of various therapeutic modalities that interrupt negative feedback loops - including disorganized breathing patterns, thoughts, and brainwave patterns. The state of our nervous system will inform how we organize our experience and make meaning of our life. Through Neurofeedback, and working directly with the nervous system to help individuals reorganize the non-conscious survival adaptations developed by the sub-cortical or lower brain, we explore the importance of experiencing the body in the present moment because healing happens in the here-and-now. This recording will include description of various neurotherapies utilized, how and why they are used within context of treatment planning, and a case presentation to demonstrate key concepts.
