Using Neurofeedback to Manage Anxiety and Affective Disorders
Recognizing the need for non-pharmaceutical approaches to treating anxiety and affective disorders, this study from the University of Utah offers compelling evidence to support the further study of neurofeedback in treating these types of disorders. While the practice has strong research support as a way to manage ADD, ADHD and epilepsy, and much anecdotal evidence to support its use in also treating anxiety and depression, there is a great need for further clinical study. Because there is growing evidence suggesting the current most common method of medications may not be as effective as previously believed, neurofeedback’s potential to help patients modify the dysfunctional brain patterns that contribute to these common disorders must be explored more thoroughly.
