    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).

    Group members will learn to conceptualize within the Brainspotting framework, break out into practicums to receive peer feedback, have an opportunity to work through counter-limbic transference, and receive support from other Brainspotting therapists.

    Trainers:

    Christine Ranck, LCSW and Cynthia Schwartzberg, LCSW are Senior Brainspotting Trainers and Supervisors with over 30 years of experience in private practice, Christine in NYC and Cynthia in NYC/Atlanta. Close colleagues of Dr. David Grand, discoverer/developer of Brainspotting, they participate in a monthly consultation group with Dr. Grand.  They specialize  in working with survivors of profound trauma, and in creativity and performance enhancement for athletes, artists and performers, and are internationally known seminar leaders and speakers.

    Description:

    Brainspotting is the revolutionary and highly effective mind-body treatment that uses relevant eye positions to access the brain/body’s innate self-scanning and self-healing capacities, and thus release the core neurobiological sources of emotional and/or body pain, trauma, dissociation, and a variety of challenging symptoms.

    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.

    Brainspotting Training for Therapists of Color

    John R. Edwards, an LCSW with a private practice in Oakland, California believes in the value of Brainspotting. After completing phases 1, 2, 3, 4, and a masterclass, he decided to create a Brainspotting training for Therapists of color in partnership with Brainspotting Training Institute. The training will be led by David Grand, PhD, Founder and Developer of Brainspotting.

    "Often in trainings, clinicians of color experience an alarming number of microaggressions and macroaggressions. Because Brainspotting training is didactic, highly experiential and intense, I thought it would great to have an atmosphere where the training can be provided with intentionality and an awareness of Cultural Humility."

    "Thanks to David Grand for his operational support and guidance as we bring to life this first ever of its kind Brainspotting training." - John R. Edwards

    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.
