We utilize electroencephalograms at the beginning of the treatment process to record raw electrical data coming from the brain. The neurons in the brain communicate using electrical impulses. Therefore when a neurological issue is diagnosed, an EEG is essential to understanding the part of the
brain that is causing the issue.
Once the raw data is collected from the initial EEG , it is compiled into a complex processing system and produces a qEEG, or a Quantified EEG. A qEEG gives us the ability to map the brain based on a set of normative data consistent with your age and gender. The brain map will show the inconsistencies
of the brain waves in the specific areas of the brain.
LORETA (low resolution electromagnetic tomography) gathers information from 19 different parts of the brain calculating activity
and blood flow to determine connectivity.
Using all of these imaging and data collection methods, we’re able to develop a treatment plan that will give the patient the best
chance at full neurological function.
Trinity’s goal is to create collaboration between cognitive therapy and faith-based neurological discoveries to develop a holistic therapeutic approach. Dr. Aaron Beck, the pioneer of Cognitive Therapy, developed his method in the 1960's. It has been a staple of psychological care ever since. Beck's methodology is founded on the idea that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected. In order to change a behavior, a psychologist must help their patient to overcome a pattern of thought. Behaviors can be used to change thoughts as well in CT. Our main current goal is to take our faith-based cognitive therapy and combine it with the research we’re conducting on the effects of prayer on the brain.
We want to utilize this strategy to help Teen Challenge accomplish their goals.

CONTEMPLATION OF PRAYER
Prayer is a dynamic, spiritual experience. Many would argue that all forms of spirituality include some type of prayer or mediation. In our current studies, we hope to harness contemplative prayer. Contemplative prayer is an active spiritual meditation where the individual
intentionally focuses on responding to God, not reaching out to Him.
The intention of this study is to evaluate the neural connections within the brain analyzing the connection between three general cortico-cortcal connections
(intra-cortical unmylenated connection in gray matter, short distance “U” shaped fibers, and long distance fasciculi in deep white matter)
during contemplative prayer.
Trinity Research Group is a non-profit organization located in Minnesota.
Our goal is to conduct systematic studies on the human brain during religious events and activities. Through this research, we develop faith-based treatments to help patients.
