Successful completion of Brainspotting Phase I is required.
Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and physical pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of other challenging conditions. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with Biolateral sound, which is deep, direct, and powerful, yet focused and containing.
Brainspotting gives us a tool, within the clinical healing relationship, to neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms which are typically out of reach of the conscious mind and its cognitive and language capacity.
“Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the therapist with the patient, finding a somatic cue and extinguishing it by down-regulating the amygdala. It isn’t just parasympathetic nervous system activation that is facilitated, it is homeostasis.” -Robert Scaer, MD, The Trauma Spectrum .
Developed by David Grand, Ph.D., Brainspotting provides a neurobiological tool for accessing, diagnosing, and treating a wide range of somatic and emotionally-based conditions.
Training Seminar Objectives:
Through lecture, clinical demonstrations, small group practice and experiential learning, participants will be able to learn and work with the following:
