Western Association for Biofeedback and Neuroscience — Spring 2017 44 suggested 3-tiered method for working with individuals who have experienced trauma: dehabituation, operant conditioning, and entrainment. Presentation: Neurofeedback: Advances in technology, in theoretical foundations, and training modalities Presenter: Hanno Kirk, PhD Student reviewer: Alexa Carter Hanno Kirk, PhD, discussed his efforts to introduce neurofeedback to the Dalai Lama and Buddhist monks. He explained that the monks would use neurofeedback while meditating, at the gamma frequencies. There were very few monks who were trained to use neurofeedback, though, and they rarely used it with patients for a few reasons. Things that prevented them from using the neurofeedback equipment included: their heavy patient load, which made it so they did not have the time to spend training pa- tients with neurofeedback, limited space in their clinic, unreliable power sources, un- comfortable chairs, and differences in how Buddhists present symptoms of psychopa- thology. Some common goals between neurofeedback and meditation are a calm and balanced mind and being open to care and compassion. Because of these commonal- ities, the Dalai Lama was very interested in neurofeedback and in teaching it to a Ti- betan population, as it seems to be an integration of Western psychology and Buddhist practices. Currently, there are negotiations underway to perform neurofeedback with Tibetan refugee orphans.
