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

Screen Shot 2015-07-19 at 10.00.30 AMBrainspotting 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. Join Dr. Grand via live webcast on October 2 as he explains this exciting new modality.

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
