Did you know that uncontrolled anger and stress have a long term effect on your health, on the wellbeing of your whole family and on the happiness in your relationships? The Behavioral Management for Anger and Stress Program offers eight weekly educational sessions that can help the whole family learn healthy ways to cope with stress and anger, develop an awareness of personal anger cues/triggers, enhance family communication and problem solving skills, and increase overall personal wellbeing.
The question of how trauma affects health is critical given the prevalence of trauma in our society. Estimates are that nationally at least 60% of men and 51% of women report experiencing at least one traumatic event in their lives such as witnessing someone being badly injured or killed; being involved in a fire, flood, or natural disaster; and being involved in a life-threatening accident. Exposure to trauma has been linked to long term poor health outcomes including chronic illness and decreased longevity. In response, Change in Action is piloting the Behavioral Management for Traumatic Exposure program. This psycho-social educational program in combination with Neurofeedback therapy and connection to affordable preventative care can overcome the harmful effects of the trauma.
The neurofeedback device measures brain waves and teaches the brain to make healthier patterns by rewarding the brain when it does so. Once these healthier brain patterns are practiced and learned, the effects of neurofeedback tend to hold, at least for many problems. As someone’s brain learns to improve and better modulate its own regulation, medication can often reduced. Sometimes, it allows medications that weren’t working well to work better.
