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 clients having to talk about it, nurtures their capacity for natural self-healing.
Through demonstrations and participation, you’ll explore how to:
Identify how specific eye movements, including wobbles and microsaccades, as well as other facial cues and reflexes reveal specific “spots” in the brain
Describe “brainspots,” the eye positions associated with the activation of trauma
Instruct traumatized clients to attend to their inner experience as they move through dissociative blocks and maximize a process of self-healing
Develop skills that allow you to pay attention to interactions with clients while staying attuned to the internal brain changes reflected in their eye movements
