Systemic Approach to Healing Chronic Illness and Pain with Brainspotting and Family Constellation

with Nancy Tung, RN & Cori Woodland, MA, LPC, LAC


Please email admin@rockymountainbrainspottinginstitute.com if you would like to view the recording of this webinar. Free for RMBI members. $25 for non-members

Synopsis: Helping people heal from chronic illnesses and pain requires a multidisciplinary approach. The symptoms often have roots in childhood, intra-uterine and/or inherited family traumas. Participants will discover that invisible entanglement of family dynamics are usually associated with trauma either from this generation or prior and can be the root cause of many chronic illnesses and pain.

We will delve into one of the most common invisible family dynamics: entanglement of the “Order of Love” in the family system.

Nancy will provide some background knowledge of how the integration of Brainspotting and Family Constellation work so well together.

Topics of exploration:
1. How the “Order of Love” in the family system affects health?
2. What is the truth behind chronic health condition and chronic pain- from systemic and brain perspective?
3. How and what to make the most of your heritage in order to stay healthy and abundant?
4. Helpful Techniques:
5. How to detect possible entanglement in the family system?
6. How to set up progressively targeted frames?
7. How to choose your BSP model, resource or activation, rolling or fixed, single or double spotting etc
8. When to follow the client’s comet and when to facilitate using Family Constellation’s healing sentences?

This presentation was interactive and experiential. Nancy presented via webcast from her office in Washington. Cori and RMBI hosted the conversation in person at the HUH Institute in Denver.
