Jackson-Feild Mourns the Passing of Robert G. Neuville

Robert Neuville recently departed this earth but his legacy lives in the lives of the children he helped at Jackson-Feild and in the Neurotherapy/biofeedback program he helped to refine and grow.

Robert was born and raised in Wisconsin. He enlisted in the Marine Corp and fought in the Korean War. Returning home he attended and graduated from the University of Richmond after which he has a successful 25 year career with AT&T.

Robert returned to college and received a Master’s in Social Work degree from Norfolk State University. He stated a second career as a professor at Norfolk State and working with underserved children in Norfolk.

He became a pioneer in the field of Neurotherapy/Neurofeedback. Neurofeedback began on the late 1950’s. It focuses on brain activity and uses and EEG. Robert was passionate about the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and revolutionized its treatment.

Jackson-Feild began using Neurotherapy in the 1990’s to help treat children who have suffered severe emotional trauma. Robert and his business partner and beloved friend Patty Graydon began providing this service for the children at JFBHS. They made a meaningful difference to countless children for years.  Robert’s health began to fail and he and Patty discontinued their efforts. Dr. John Griffin, local neuro-psychologist has picked up where they left off.

His goal was to depart this world leaving it a better place than he found it. He did through the lives of the children he helped at Jackson-Feld.
