Brainspotting Phase I

Seminar Overview

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), and Gazespotting (a naturally occuring fixedand relevant eye position). 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.

Seminar Objectives

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

  • Define how Brainspotting can be applied to Trauma, Dissociation, Sports psychology, Somatic conditions

  • Demonstrate the theories and practices of Brainspotting, including the Uncertainty Principle and the Dual Attunement Frame of neurobiology & relationship

Brainspotting Phase II

Seminar Overview

This Brainspotting Phase 2 training will begin with an extensive review of Outside/Inside Window with an emphasis on how to clinically interact with clients during Brainspotting. We will then learn refinements of the process including how and when to titrate activation up or down.

Trainees will be introduced to One-Eye Brainspotting and several important new 3 Dimensional Brainspotting concepts using the “Z-Axis” of Brainspotting, including "close and far," and Convergence Therapy which expands the Z-Axis to activate the vagus nerve through the ocularcardiac reflex.

Additional technical refinements will be presented including “Rolling Brainspotting,” with slow eye tracking stopping briefly on each Brainspot.

Techniques taught with Power Point lecture, discussion with Q & A, demonstrations and practicums.

Seminar Objectives

Through lecture, live demonstration and small group practice participants will learn to do the following:

  • Review components taught in Brainspotting (Outside and Inside Window, Gazespotting, & The Resource Model of Brainspotting)

  • Define Frame and Focus Brainspotting Diagnosis and Treatment

  • Demonstrate 3 Dimensional Z-Axis and convergence Therapy

  • Define and demonstrate One-Eye and Rolling Brainspotting
