Symptoms of unprocessed trauma–including dissociation, numbing, and chronic anxiety–are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy, since the overwhelmed brain is unable to process verbal information about the events. But Brainspotting, a brain-based method of clearing trauma blockage, without their having to talk about it, nurtures clients’ capacity for natural self-healing. You will learn Brainspotting techniques through observation, a demonstration, and participating in a practicum.
Show clients to follow a “Brainspot”–the eye position in the visual field associated with the activation of trauma
Explain to clients how to attend to their inner experience as they release emotions that typically are out of consciousness
Recognize when a traumatic block has been cleared away and the desired change has been achieved
