Training Description

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 several important new 3 Dimensional Brainspotting concepts using the “Z-Axis” of Brainspotting 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 “One-Eye Brainspotting,” using BSP goggles; “Rolling Brainspotting,” with slow eye tracking stopping briefly on each Brainspot, “Selfspotting” which allows vulnerable clients to locate their own Brainspots; and Body Gridwork which is a method to identify, interconnect and release spots in the body holding pain and stress.

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