The Behavioral Management for Traumatic Exposure seeks the long term change in the lives of our clients to promote health and wellness and decrease the likelihood of chronic health conditions associated with exposure to trauma. The desired short term changes are the improvement in healthy functioning based on assessed indicators, access and utilization of preventative health care, and the changes in personal care. This program is a ten week series of educational group style sessions for adults, adolescents and youth that have either been traumatically exposed or a loved one has been traumatically exposed. Traumatic exposure includes those that have experienced violence, crime, homelessness, serious injury, natural disaster, neglect/abandonment, etc.

Neurofeedback therapy helps the brain be retrained to healthier functioning. Electrical sensors placed on the scalp record information about how active each type of brain wave is. Depending on what waves are identified as being overactive and which are under-active, a therapy protocol is chosen to help the brain become balanced. When you give the brain information about itself, it has an enormous capacity for change. Neurofeedback provides the brain with real-time information and asks it to make adjustments. The brain can respond rapidly Neurofeedback therapy is offered either as an individual service or as a component of the Behavioral Management for Traumatic Exposure program.
