Brainspotting works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/somatic/spiritual pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of symptoms. Brainspotting identifies and de-conditions activated neurological subsystems through a combination of eye position, mindful attention to somatic distress, and the attunement between therapist and client.
Located through either one or both eyes, Brainspots are observed either through the “inside window” of the client’s felt sense and/or the “outside window” of the client’s reflexive responses (i.e., blinks, eye twitches or wobbles, pupil dilation, breathing patterns, and other subtle body movements).
Brainspotting can be used with adults and children.
Brainspotting applications include most DSM-IV diagnoses, PTSD, Complex PTSD, Dissociation, Attachment Disorders, Somatic Conditions, ADHD, Performance and Creative Blocks, Sports Psychology, and more.
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. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with BioLateral sound, which is deep, direct, powerful yet focused and containing.
Brainspotting identifies activated eye positions designated as Brainspots. Located through either one or both eyes, Brainspots are observed from either the “Inside Window” of the clients felt sense and/or the “Outside Window” of the clients’ 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 strategies for identifying and processing Brainspots.
Attention will be given to the utilization and integration of Brainspotting into ongoing treatment, including highly dissociative clients. Brainspotting is adaptable to almost all areas of specialization.
Brainspotting provides therapists with powerful tools which enable their patients to quickly and effectively focus and process through the deep brain sources of many emotional, somatic and performance problems.
Through lecture, live demonstration and small group practice participants will learn to do the following:
- Define the components of Brainspotting
- Utilize the techniques of “Inside window” and “Outside window”
- Define how Brainspotting can be applied to Trauma, Dissociation, Sports psychology, Somatic conditions
- Demonstrate the theories and practices of Brainspotting
