Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a serious type of anxiety caused by an extremely stressful event or series of events. According to the American Psychiatric Association, PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is “a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape or other violent personal assault.”
Women experience PTSD more than men. Most people who suffer from PTSD are looking for an effective way to treat their symptoms, but unfortunately, many sufferers experience only limited benefit after trying various therapies and medication.
Research has discovered that PTSD stems in the brain. Neurofeedback trains the brain to produce a calm state, as well as regulate the stress response. Mental health professionals around the world have helped their patients with PTSD using neurofeedback training.
