Mind Over Trauma: Novel Treatments for PTSD Recovery

Did you know that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can cause memory problems, difficulties with attention, learning challenges, and hinder everyday activities? These changes not only impact one’s ability to benefit from mental health treatments but can also make it tough to excel at work, return to work, or fully enjoy retirement. REGISTER HERE

Our research team is exploring novel treatment solutions that can help individuals with these challenges. Goal Management Training™ (GMT) is a cognitive rehabilitation program designed to enhance executive functioning, boost organizational skills, and empower individuals to achieve their goals.

Here’s the exciting part: GMT may be particularly effective when combined with Neurofeedback—a technology that helps individuals improve mindfulness by providing immediate feedback on their mental state. Together, GMT and Neurofeedback show great promise in reducing PTSD symptoms and enhancing brain function. Curious to learn more? Join us for an upcoming webinar where we’ll share our findings on the benefits of GMT and Neurofeedback in reducing PTSD symptoms and improving brain function.


  • Learn about how PTSD impacts the brain and the gaps in currently available treatment for PTSD.
  • Learn how Goal Management Training (GMT) and Neurofeedback work to improve brain function and PTSD symptoms.
  • Learn about our research on the use of GMT and Neurofeedback in a recent study by clinical researchers at McMaster University.
