APNA Asia Pacific 5th Neurofeedback Conference 2023 - Neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, Special Education - Expert Panel and Paper Presenter

I’m proud to be one of the panelists and presenters for the APNA Neurofeedback Conference 2023. Our theme this year is all about neurofeedback, developmental trauma, and special education. I feel so good to be back in my hometown, Johor Bahru, to share knowledge about neurofeedback with the audience from all around the Asia Pacific Region. This marks my 10 years of practicing neurofeedback, and witnessing more and more young practitioners join the field sparks joy. I no longer feel alone when there are so many professionals such as clinical psychologists, counselors, psychotherapists, pediatricians, neurologists, child psychiatrists, hypnotherapists, and more who joined the conference this time. I notice the majority of us are shifting from a “machine”-oriented approach to a more “humanistic” one, attuning to individual needs. It really touches my heart to see these changes.

[Event] Asia Pacific Neuro-biofeedback Association Conference 2017 - Autonomic Nervous Dysfunction Part

My presentation topic in APNA 2017 Conference:
Autonomic Nervous System Disorders

Abstract of My Presentation

Human brain can be trained at any age and new neurons are produced throughout our life. The term of neuroplasticity is well accepted nowadays. EEG biofeedback or neurofeedback is based on the concept of neuroplasticity that trains the brain like a muscle. Clinical Neurofeedback is the clinical application of EEG Biofeedback method. Meanwhile, Clinical Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique in which clinicians make suggestions to individuals to improve a wide range of conditions including physical and mental aspect. Both are safe, non-invasive and painless procedure. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, autonomic nervous system (ANS) disorders can occur alone or as the result of another disease. When something goes wrong in our autonomic nervous system, it can cause serious problems including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), blood pressure and heart problems etc. Often, there is no cure for autonomic nervous system disorders but it is possible to improve those symptoms. Thus, a case study will be discussed on how Neuro-hypnotherapy method helps a client who suffered for ANS disorder symptoms. At last, we will also discuss about how to integrate Clinical Neurofeedback and Clinical Hypmosis to improve other ANS disorder symptoms.
