“David Grand is one of the most important and effective psychological trauma therapists now practicing, and his development of Brainspotting is a very important leap forward in helping people resolve trauma. Brainspotting is a remarkable, sophisticated, flexible addition to the therapeutic toolkit of any psychotherapist.” Norman Doidge, MD (author of The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing)
In this 3-Day Training, you will learn to identify, process and release the deep brain mechanisms of trauma, dissociation and other challenging psycho-emotional symptoms through harnessing eye movement. This training will equip you to apply Brainspotting in clinical settings upon completion.
Brainspotting simultaneously diagnoses and treats by working with activated eye positions called Brainspots. Located through either one or both eyes, Brainspots are observed from either the “Inside Window” of the client’s felt sense and/or the “Outside Window” of the client’s reflexive responses (i.e., blink, eye twitches or wobbles, pupil dilation, quick breaths and subtle body shifts). Students will first learn the phenomenological approach that underpins strategies for Brainspotting, followed by techniques for identifying and processing Brainspots.
Through lecture, live demonstration and small group practice, the emphasis will be on the integration of Brainspotting into ongoing treatment including work with highly dissociative clients. Brainspotting is adaptable to almost all areas of specialization. It will provide you with powerful tools to enable your patients to quickly and effectively focus and process the neurophysiological sources of many emotional, somatic and performance problems.
Participants who complete Phase 1 can begin using Brainspotting right away. For more information about further training, please visit www.brainspotting.com
