Course Description         

"Brainspotting" is a powerful, brain-based trauma therapy that accesses the deepest regions of the brain where clients store their traumatic experiences and survival terror. This access to the limbic system and brainstem allows deep transformation to occur. It works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and body pain, trauma, dissociation, terror, flashbacks, panic, and other challenging symptoms. Symptoms of unprocessed trauma, which include chronic anxiety, insomnia, and numbing, are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy. This is because the brain becomes overwhelmed and is unable to process verbal information about the traumatic events.

"Brainspotting" was voted the most effective trauma treatment by the parents and survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre after a five-year study by the Sandy Hook Foundation comparing over 25 therapeutic modalities. The parents rated it first in its effectiveness in treating the traumatic loss of their young children.

This presentation teaches participants to metrically measure the efficacy of each session with their clients so it is very clear if the client is benefiting from the treatment. It also will help the attendees stay abreast of the most recent brain-based breakthroughs in treating clients with PTSD. This presentation underscores principles of complete non-judgment and compassion for each and every client. It also encourages the therapist to follow the client, rather than lead.
