Utilising mindfulness and neuroscience: a case study of an Iranian refugee.

Gordana Hol-Radicic

Mindfulness is one of the common therapeutic modalities utilised in the treatment of torture and trauma survivors suffering from PTSD. Evidence suggests that Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is reduced amongst torture and trauma survivors, and brain wave patterns can be significantly disturbed, with a slow beta-wave in the right pre-frontal lobe, resulting in poor cognitive capacities and reduced concentration.

Recorded at the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS)
15 October 2012, New South Wales, Australia.
