Brainspotting  - Phase 1 -  Online

Introductory/Beginning Level Three day 21-hour online training


Brainspotting is a brain-based therapy based on hypothesis that specific eye positions designated as "brainspots" activate and access specific area of the midbrain that allow for the reprocessing and releasing of core neurophysiological reactions to trauma-related and other psychological experiences. In addition, brainspotting is built on a model that emphasizes therapist-client presence and attunement in the healing process. As an open and integrative model, brainspotting is adaptable to many different areas of specialization and can be integrated with other treatment models.

In this introductory Brainspotting Phase 1 training, participants will learn four basic brainspotting techniques. In addition, participants will receive and overview of the:

  • standards of care and professional practice for brainspotting practitioners,
  • research that supports the primary assumptions of brainspotting; and
  • challenges of research and evidence-based treatment for conditions such as Complex PTSD
