Resilience Training (neurofeedback)

Emotional Resilience Training is a neuropsychological intervention focused on providing tools to improve functioning of the brain’s prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is the brain area most linked to executive functioning. When the prefrontal cortex is engaged, one can regulate attention, inhibit unwanted behavior, monitor one’s responses, plan and organize action (executive functioning).

Dr. Tyrrell Baker provides counseling, biofeedback, and education on how to activate this brain area.

Reslience training includes use of computer-assisted technology which helps one know when this brain area is activated.

After sessions of Resilience Training, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems work together more easily. The ability to move between brain states increases. The ability to pause, observe, and flexibly choose one’s responses increases. This can assist with stressor-related difficulties and result in decreases in anxiety, depression, anger, irritability, and impulsivity. Generally one sees changes in the intensity and speed of onset of symptoms.

Dr. Tyrrell Baker is trained in the HEG pIR methodology of biofeedback (neurofeedback) developed by Dr. Jeffrey Carmen in Manlius, NY. See the following article that showcases this technological innovation and the use of it in Dr. Tyrrell Baker’s clinical practice.
