Sunday, June 7, 2015. During the daytime hours of most of my productive time I am attentively and intensely involved with the brain-mind-self growth and development of a very smart and active nearly 3 year old who is acquiring language and the ability to communicate with self and others at warp speed. I counted last week and found the average is an interruption requiring ME by my grandson every 7 seconds. One time this pattern allowed me 15 seconds to my own thoughts!
I cannot do more than note alerts to very important and fascinating research that continues to come my way. I have created a folder in my email account to store these in – that I named — “Study this Later” and later is months away from now! Otherwise these tapestry threads will disappear over the waterfall of my life to be gone forever. Or so I fear.

A message from Dr. Bessel A. van der Kolk:
Having witnessed breakthrough results in the treatment of trauma, abuse and neglect with neurofeedback, I’m asking for your help.
For so many traumatized children and adults, neurofeedback remains out of reach…
For this reason I have has created a free CE video giving an in-depth discussion of the promising way to rewire the brain — through neurofeedback.
You’ll learn what neurofeedback is, how we study it, and see the remarkable results that we’ve obtained thus far.
I’ll also tell you why right now, neurofeedback is not eligible for insurance reimbursement and what you and I, together, can do about that.
I appreciate your dedication to improving trauma treatment and committing yourself so much to the mental health profession.
Please, enjoy my free CE seminar — and share with your colleagues to help me get the word out.

Well, I am disappointed but not surprised that I do not see the links I thought I saved on the topic that MOST caught my attention – THE NEUROSCIENCE OF PLACE
I can locate information via online search for “neuroscience place” – and here are a few links to what shows up there:
And a special topic for me:
All this to say, I can at present accomplish to more than to point out some points that send the compass of my mind into excited swirling!! I do believe that trauma, and especially early relationship trauma, ALL childhood trauma, is somehow involved in alterations related to these topics.
