Brainspotting Phase 2 Certification Training: Deepening Skills and Expanding the Toolkit

Thursday, April 30 –
Saturday, May 2, 2020

9:00 am to 6:00 pm

Where you look affects how you feel. Take your Brainspotting training to the next level!

Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms. For those of you who have completed Brainspotting Phase 1, we are pleased to offer Phase 2 training towards completion of your Brainspotting certification.

This three-day Phase 2 training begins with an extensive review to help you consolidate your Phase 1 training and to answer questions that may have arisen when you have used Brainspotting with your clients. There will be a focus on how to clinically interact with clients during Brainspotting.

Following the review, you will then learn more refinements of the Brainspotting process, including how and when to titrate activation up or down, as well as several important new concepts that will help you respond more effectively to clients who are highly activated, showing signs of dissociation and/or shut down. You will learn several techniques to help your clients better regulate their activation levels. Additional technical refinements such as One-Eye Brainspotting, Rolling Brainspotting and Advanced Resourcing will further broaden your repertoire of skills and tools so that you are better able to work with highly distressed clients, those in crisis and individuals with complex PTSD and/or attachment disorders.

The training will be a combination of didactic teaching, demonstrations and experiential exercises to help you acquire new procedures.

Note: Completion of Brainspotting Phase 1 is a prerequisite for this Phase 2 training regardless of whether or not participants wish to pursue certification. Completion of both Phase 1 and 2 qualifies participants to apply for Brainspotting certification status.
