Brainspotting Phase 2 St. Louis

Seminar Overview

Brainspotting is a brain-based therapy based on the hypothesis that specific eye positions designated as “brainspots” activate and access specific areas 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 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.

Seminar Objectives
