    This peer consultation group meets the first Monday of every month from 6-8 PM at the Brassfield Center for Healing & Integration. The first hour is used for case consultation and then group members break off into practicum for the second hour. This group is a great option for anyone who has been to training in the Southeast region. 

    Group Member Testimonial: 

    The monthly peer consultation group gives me the opportunity to share how I am using Brainspotting in my practice; I am also able to connect and get ideas from other clinicians. Group discussion allows time for us to share many successes, process the challenges we encounter, and brainstorm. In addition, I benefit from practicing “being the client” once a month through experiencing various techniques used by other clinicians who have expanded their training.

    The group facilitator, Heidi Birkner, LPC, LCAS, PLLC, can be reached by email (heidi.birkner@gmailcom) and phone (336-314-3141).

    Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with BioLateral sound, which is deep, direct, powerful yet focused and containing.

    Brainspotting identifies activated eye positions designated as Brainspots. Located through either one or both eyes, Brainspots are observed from either the “Inside Window” of the clients felt sense and/or the “Outside Window” of the clients’ reflexive responses (i.e., blink, eye twitches or wobbles, pupil dilation, quick breaths, and subtle body shifts).

    Students will first learn the phenomenological approach that underpins strategies for Brainspotting, followed by strategies for identifying and processing Brainspots. Attention will be given to the utilization and integration of Brainspotting into ongoing treatment, including highly dissociative clients. Brainspotting is adaptable to almost all areas of specialization.

    Brainspotting provides therapists with powerful tools that enable their patients to quickly and effectively focus and process through the deep brain sources of many emotional, somatic and performance problems.

    Trainings are open to all counselors, psychologists, social workers and others in the healing professions with strong clinical backgrounds, as well as students/interns in the mental health field who are curious and seek to expand their knowledge.
