The National Alliance on Mental Illness's Fairfield chapter will hold a talk, "Change Your Mind with Neurofeedback," by Gerry Radano, a licensed master social worker, on Wednesday, Dec. 5. It will take place from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Eliot Room Library, First Church Congregational, 148 Beach Road.
Neurofeedback is a drug-free, painless and non-invasive therapy to treat neuropsychological conditions involving self-regulation of the brain's cerebral cortex, according to a release. It involves direct training of the brain to address problems such as anger, anxiety, the autism spectrum, depression, attention deficits and obsessive compulsive disorder. It also works to enhance academic and athletic performance. Radano received a master's degree in social work from Fordham University in New York City, where she was trained as a clinician, an advocate and an administrator, the release states. She has studied neurofeedback and biofeedback at the Biofeedback Resources International Certification Program and has been certified by the American Institute of Biofeedback Technicians.
The meeting is open to the public and free. Light refreshments will be served.
