A multifaceted case-vignette integrating neurofeedback and EMDR in the treatment of complex PTSD
The methods of neurofeedback (Kirk, 2016) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (Shapiro, 2018; Shapiro & Silk Forrest, 1997) will be reflected in relation to a short-time treatment of a patient with complex PTSD and an unspecified dissociative disorder. The aim is to inspire colleges to integrate therapy methods in their quest to help dysregulated patients to become stabile and regulated enough to endure trauma work. This is considered important, especially when working with patients with severe and complex posttraumatic conditions and dissociative disorders, where the evidence-based treatments often not fit for purpose (Corrigan & Hull, 2015). An alternative approach is presented with a single case-study of a patient treated with neurofeedback and EMDR in a psychodynamic short-time psychotherapy. The results of these interventions are presented together with the patient's drawings and reflections and finally discussed.
