Workshop Description

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.
