Course Description

This Phase 1 training will be presented through the perinatal lens through examples, demonstrations, and practicum will be perinatal centered.

Brainspotting is a brain-based therapy based on the hypothesis that specific eye positions designated as “brainspots” activate and access specific areas of the midbrain that allow for the reprocessing and releasing of core neurophysiological reactions to trauma-related and other psychological experiences.

In addition, brainspotting is built on a model that emphasizes therapist-client presence and attunement in the healing process. As an open and integrative model, brainspotting is adaptable to many different areas of specialization and can be integrated with other treatment models.

In this 5-day introductory Brainspotting training, participants will learn four basic brainspotting techniques. In addition, participants will receive an overview of the:

  • standards of care and professional practice for brainspotting practitioners
  • research that supports the primary assumptions of brainspotting
  • Exposure to practices helpful with the perinatal population

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”, “Outside window” and “Gazespotting” and “Body Resource” Brainspotting
  • Define how Brainspotting can be applied to Trauma, Sports Performance Problems, Dissociation and Somatic conditions
  • Demonstrate the theory and practice of Brainspotting
