An emotional behavioural disorder affects a person’s ability to be happy, control their emotions and pay attention in school. Symptoms of an emotional behavioural disorder include:

  • Inappropriate actions or emotions under normal circumstances
  • Learning difficulties that are not caused by another health factor
  • Difficulty with interpersonal relationships, including relationships with teachers and peers
  • A general feeling of unhappiness or depression
  • Feelings of fear and anxiety related to personal or school matters

Some of the emotional symptoms of behavioural disorders include:

  • Easily getting annoyed or nervous
  • Often appearing angry
  • Putting blame on others
  • Refusing to follow rules or questioning authority
  • Arguing and throwing temper tantrums
  • Having difficulty in handling frustration
  • Lack of social skills

Unlike other types of health issues, a behavioural disorder will have mostly emotional symptoms and manifest in behaviour. Physical symptoms such as a fever, rash, or headaches, being a problem and being absent. However, sometimes people suffering from a behavioural disorder will develop a substance abuse problem, which could show physical symptoms such as burnt fingertips, shaking or bloodshot eyes.

The abnormal behaviour that is usually associated with these disorders can be traced back to biological, family and school-related factors.

Some biological causes may include:

  • Malnutrition
  • Physical illness or disability
  • Brain damage
  • Hereditary factors
  • Other Factors which may contribute to these disorder can include:
  • Divorce
  • Emotional upset
  • Coercion (Pressure) from parents
  • Unhealthy or inconsistent discipline style
  • Poor attitude toward education, schooling or authority
  • Lack of support

If left untreated, these disorders will have negative effects on an individual’s personal and professional life. It is often seen that they “get into trouble”, act out, face suspension, expulsion or get fired. They are often observed fighting, bullying or arguing with authority figures, themselves or anyone they can find to vent on. Adults may not be employable or miss promotions or even be demoted and eventually lose their jobs. Marriages can fall apart due to prolonged strained relationships. Often this results in serious actions where a person can “snap” or engage in starting fights, abusing animals and threatening to use harmful methods on others.

Although this is a “Behavioral” Disorder, this can be successfully improved through many avenues.

There is a high success rate of treatment of these disorders with Neuro-Feedback, both with adults and children. Through the Neuro-Feedback sessions, the brain readjusts its self and supports the endocrine system to restore the correct chemical balance, which is natural for the body. This is supported through good nutrition and supplementation which is managed through Health Renewal. As the client/patient goes through the Neuro-Feedback sessions the brain begins to calm down and function as it was intended to. Neuro-Feedback will lower the “coherence” of the left and right Hemispheres, restore frontal lobe function which will improve: focus, concentration, data processing and improve the ability to lower stress, deal with stressful environments, people and other stimulus which promotes destructive behavioral disorders. In turn, it will balance the left and right hemispheres to dissolve anxiety, panic and depression. It will improve internal happiness, improve trust issues and quiet the voices or “noise” from the back of the brain, all drug and stress free.

Review -Brain training has made such an impact on our lives!
Reviewed on 19 October 2015 by A Joubert

Brain training has made such an impact on our lives that we are truly grateful that our paths crossed with it. There is such a vast difference in our daily lives pre- and post brain training. Our lives pre-brain training with our daughter was quite the challenge on a regular basis. A small example of this was the challenges at dinnertime. She would sit with a fork full of food in front of her face and daydream to such an extent that dinnertime would last in excess of an hour and resulted in cold food, upset parents and a general unhappy household.

And along came the wonder of brain training. In our case 12 hours of relaxation for our daughter, and a happy household outcome! From not being able to concentrate long enough to finish a plate of food without it resulting in a fight or two, she could have dinner whilst following the conversation going on and still keep up with various other distractions. The absolute accuracy of the brain map has astounded me, from picking up her perfectionism to being able to point out to us that her brain does not allow her body to rest at night, what an awesome experience.

I would recommend brain training to any parent who gets the dreaded phone call from school asking you to start your child on certain medications. Rather explore what is going on in your child's brain and find alternative, non-chemical ways to assist them, it is such an investment in their future.
