Here’s a typical scenario: at the end of the session, your client either responded well or not at all to treatment. And even those that responded well to treatment have often regressed by their next session. They’re angry - and you thought you had made a therapeutic gain.

If you’re like most therapists, you rely on talk therapy or a technical modality. What you are missing is the brain-body relation.

There is a new brain-based relational treatment approach developed by David Grand, PhD. that will give you more effectiveness as a therapist and avoid poor client responses.

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.

Trauma overwhelms the brain’s processing, leaving pieces of unprocessed experiences frozen in time. Brainspotting will provide you with powerful tools enabling your clients to quickly and effectively focus and process through the deep brain sources of many emotional, somatic and performance problems.

Where we look reveals critical information about what is going on in our brain. By carefully observing how and where clients look and focusing on the particular spot, this helps the client process disturbing material more gently and deeply.

Why is it better than many approaches?
• Flexible
• Bridges the gap between talk and technical modalities
• No protocols to master (like EMDR)
• Open and relational
• Responsive to the needs of the client
• Includes brain-body tools
• Can be adapted into any clinical approach and therapeutic style


• Access the clients visual field and somatic awareness to gain neurobiological attunement while enhancing relational attunement.
• Demonstrate three methods of attuning to clients visual field including Outside Window, Inside Window and • Gazespotting.
• Use less intervention by accessing and trusting the clients innate brain-body healing capacity.
• Explain psychoeducation regarding the neocortex and subcortex with clients.
• Develop increased awareness of the counter-transferential activation of the flight, fight freeze response and how to adapt to it.
• Describe how to effectively


What is Brainspotting?
Brain-body based relational therapy
Deeper, more powerful processing of trauma
Brainspot - activity in the brain in response to focus and eye position

The Three Types of Brainspots

Inside Window: Client and therapist work together to find brainspots
Gazespotting: Client has a fixed gaze while thinking or speaking

Reflexive Responses in Clients
Eye wobbles
Eye freezes
Facial tics
Brow furrowing
Head nods
Body shifting

The Dual Attunement Frame
Interpersonal Neurobiology
Goal of brainspotting is accessing self-healing capacities
Activate, locate and process the sources of trauma and distress in the body
Unfreeze and release where the trauma is being held
Gain direct access to midbrain processes for bottom up brain-body change

SUDS Level (10-0)
Location of activation in the body
Location of eye position of greatest activity
Focused Mindfulness (processing)
