Brainspotting Phase 2 (In Person)

This Brainspotting Phase 2 training will begin with an extensive review of Outside/Inside Window with an emphasis on how to clinically interact with clients during Brainspotting. We will then learn refinements of the process including how and when to titrate activation up or down.

Trainees will be introduced to several important new 3 Dimensional Brainspotting concepts using the “Z-Axis” of Brainspotting close and far and Vergence Therapy which expands the Z-Axis to activate the vagus nerve through the ocularcardiac reflex.

Additional technical refinements will be presented including “Rolling Brainspotting,” with slow eye tracking stopping briefly on each Brainspot along with “One eye” brainspotting technique.

For those working with more complex clientele, this training offers a number of useful skills for working more vulnerable system.  Advanced resource model of brainspotting along with other ways to work with a more resourced Brainspotting approach.

Must have completed BSP Phase 1 to attend.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the components of Brainspotting
  2. Demonstrate and utilize the core components of Brainspotting:
    • Z-axis
    • Rolling Brainspotting
    • Inside Window/Outside Window
    • One eye Brainspotting
    • One eye with Z-Axis Brainspotting
    • Vergence Th
  1. Expand how Brainspotting can be applied to:
    • Trauma
    • Dissociation
    • Somatic Conditions
    • Broad range of Psychological Conditions
  1. Explain and expand understanding of the theory and core concepts of Brainspotting including:
    • Where you look affects how you feel
    • Dual Attunement frame
    • Uncertainty principle
    • WAIT
    • Staying in the “Tail of the Comet”
  1. Continue to discuss and expand understanding of limbic countertransference
  2. Summarize the research that supports the hypothezied way in which eye positions activate midbrain activity
  3. Discuss effective ways to apply Brainspotting in various practice settings along with various populations
  4. Increase assessment with using Brainspotting with more complex clients and cases
  5. Expand understanding of brain process to include the role of the allocortex and isocortex
  6. Provide a diverse, supportive and collaborative learning environment
