The whole is greater than the sum of its parts
As a marriage and family therapist, I am trained to think holistically. Working as a Neurofeedback therapist I focus on the individual. How do I integrate these two approaches? As a family therapist, I work with individuals to improve their interactions within a family, which changes how the family system functions. To understand my work as a family therapist, envision a mobile — when you tug on one part of the mobile, all of the pieces react because they are literally tied to each other. That is how families are — when one person has an issue, it affects everyone in the family. Family members are tied together emotionally. In Neurofeedback, we can address one person’s issues by training their brain to function optimally. This enables them to better cope with their own issues, which in turn affects how they interact with family members. The result is an improved family dynamic. When multiple members of a family participate in Neurofeedback therapy, we can impact more pieces of the system. By optimizing each individual, we optimize the system as a whole. This holistic approach uses individual Neurofeedback therapy to help the family function more efficiently. Just as a mobile moves smoothly when all its components are in harmony, so does a family thrive when all its members are functioning optimally.
