Learning Objectives:

Based on the content of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
  • Identify which regions in the brain, indicated by current published research, are recruited when a person is experiencing heartbreak as a result of a disrupted romantic relationship.
  • Evaluate the utility of qEEG assessment and sLORETA imaging in determining whether neurofeedback could potentially facilitate a post-relationship recovery arc for a client having difficulty resolving residual romantic feelings.
  • Select regions to include in an sLORETA z-score neurofeedback training protocol intended to increase romantic resiliency.
