This workshop explores how brain-computer interfaces (EEG neurofeedback) can support changes in the fear-driven brain and enhance executive functions in the context of psychotherapy for individuals with developmental trauma disorder. Many of the case studies involve individuals of Israeli, second-, third- and fourth-generation Holocaust survivors. Elya’s specific area of expertise is trauma, particularly transgenerational and generational trauma.

Participants will learn about the basics of how developmental trauma impacts brain structures, neurofeedback, its impact on trauma-affected neuronal pathways, and the integration of neurofeedback with various psychotherapeutic approaches.

The workshop will include case presentations demonstrating how EEG neurofeedback has helped people with developmental trauma disorder, as well as opportunities for demonstration and personal experience. Tailored for clinicians, this workshop aims to provide practical insights into the application of neuroscientific findings within clinical settings, focusing on improving executive functioning, emotional regulation, and bodily-based aspects affected by trauma.

Elya Steinberg, a nonbinary British-Israeli, is the workshop facilitator. They are a multi-faceted psychotherapist and medical doctor who trained as a biodynamic psychotherapist at the Gerda Boyesen Centre and serve as a lecturer and supervisor at The Minster Centre and Regent University.

Elya was the chair of the EABP Standards Committee until recently and served as the LSBP director until 2019. With experience in body psychotherapy since 1982, Elya integrates neurofeedback, trauma work, bioenergy, martial arts, integrative medicine, and neuroscience into their practice. Pursuing an MSc in applied neuroscience at King’s College London, Elya focuses on salutogenic concepts to support clients in integrating their biopsychosocial realities and achieving self-actualisation through a unique, holistic approach.
