Issues in Therapy 2019

About the conference

Brainspotting (BSP) is a relational, brain-body-mindfulness based psychotherapy. It utilizes the Dual Attunenment Frame to combine relational and neurobiological attunement to optimize client processing. BSP is unique as a technical therapy as primary attention is given to the healing power of the relationship. It is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment. It is highly adaptable and can be easily integrated with other psychotherapy modalities.

In this workshop, you will learn about Brainspotting and how it works.

BSP taps into and harnesses the body’s natural self-scanning and self-healing abilities. It can also be used to find and strengthen our natural resources and resilience. By working mindfully with the relationship between eye movement and subcortical activity, BSP helps your clients focus and process the deep brain sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and other somatic and performance problems.

You will learn how relevant eye positions, called Brainspots, can be used to locate and access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. You will also learn how to set up the formation of the Dual Attunement Frame in order to create the optimal environment for healing.
