Presenter: Priscilla J. Friesen, LCSW

This clinical case report is based on a presentation at a Faculty Case Conference in February 1997. Identifying data have been altered to ensure confidentiality. This clinical case presentation is a report on the author's learning about EEG and how family theory and EEG are related. EEG (electroencephalogram) bio-feedback is the process of measuring brain waves and returning that information to an individual through auditory or visual feedback. This process promotes the ability of the person to learn and change his or her brain wave patterns and decrease symptoms.

EEG biofeedback is a field that in recent years has developed a number of clinical applications. Remarkable results have been reported with symptoms such as attention deficit disorder and alcoholism. Since 1994 the author has sought to understand these findings in a context beyond the individual and the symptom. What happens in the broader emotional unit when there is significant change in the functioning of one person? What is the nature of the way the brain operates that is reflective of the emotional unit?
