Expert Presenter

Sebern Fisher is a psychotherapist and pioneer of neurofeedback who specializes in the aftermath of neglect and abuse in early childhood. She focuses on training the traumatized brain to learn its own regulation and maintains that you can recover from trauma at any age. She trains professionals nationally and internationally on neurofeedback and on the need to integrate neurofeedback with psychotherapy. Her book, Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Developmental Trauma: Calming the Fear-Driven Brain, has helped her readers understand how the traumatized brain can give rise to explosive feelings, irrational thinking and destructive behavior. When the brain learns its own regulation, its owner can engage meaningfully in psychotherapy and in life.
