Brainspotting is a powerful and effective approach to healing and wellness that harnesses the nervous system's ability to reorganize and realign itself, enhancing resilience and facilitating change. Discovered in 2003 by psychotherapist Dr. David Grand, Brainspotting accesses the brain-body's innate self-scanning and self-healing capacities in the context of neurobiological and relational attunement. In Brainspotting, a person's brain-body activation around a particular issue is paired with a relevant eye position, called a Brainspot, that locates, processes and releases trauma, allowing the brain-body system to regain homeostasis. This class will introduce you to the core concepts and provide you with hands on experience utilizing the basic elements of Brainspotting so that you can begin using it immediately.
Brainspotting was found to be the most effective therapy for treatment of trauma in adults in the 2016 Sandy Hook Community Report.
