Clearing Limbic Countertransference: Enhancing Attunement

Overview

Seminar Overview

This 3-day Brainspotting Advanced Seminar is an opportunity for Brainspotting professionals to deepen their understanding and have personal experience with clearing limbic countertransference. We will also focus on enhancing their clinical presence. This seminar will be taught through didactic discussions, demonstrations and practicums. Process will include strengthening our experience with the uncertainty principle, staying in the tail of the comet, focused mindfulness, W.A.I.T. (why am I talking) and the no assumptions model.

This 3-day training will begin with an extensive review of Brainspotting Theory around limbic countertransference and new developments in neuroscience regarding the difference between empathy and compassion. The teaching opportunities are designed to make available the open, integrative, free-form approach of Brainspotting to enhance presence and support clinicians in applying Brainspotting to all diagnostic categories, including Dissociative and Attachment Disorders.

Attendees will learn neurobiological implications of the differences between empathy and compassion, impacts of secondary exposure to client’s content and have opportunities to clear these neurobiological reactions. Teachings will include developing skills for when the therapist loses attunement, falls out of the tail of the comet and ways to develop and apply expansion model to self-care. Minimum requirement for attendance is Brainspotting Phase 1.
