    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.

    This 3-day Brainspotting Phase 2 Training will begin with an extensive review of Outside and Window Brainspotting and Gazespotting, with an emphasis on how to clinically interact with clients. Trainees will be introduced to several important applications. This includes One-Eye Brainspotting including the use of One-Eye goggles.

    Also taught is 3-Dimensional Brainspotting using the “Z-Axis” of Brainspotting close and far. This includes Convergence Therapy which expands the Z-Axis to activate the vagus nerve through the ocular cardiac reflex.

    Additional technical refinements will be presented including “Rolling Brainspotting” with slow eye tracking stopping briefly on each Brainspot. Advanced techniques will also include combined Inside-Outside Brainspotting where both reflexive responses and client sense of highest activation are used together to find Brainspots.

    Description:

    This 3-day Brainspotting Advanced Seminar is an opportunity for Brainspotting professionals to deepen their understanding and have personal experience with clearing limbic countertransference. We will also focus on enhancing their clinical presence. This seminar will be taught through didactic discussions, demonstrations and practicums. Process will include strengthening our experience with the uncertainty principle, staying in the tail of the comet, focused mindfulness, W.A.I.T. (why am I talking) and the no assumptions model.

    This 3-day training will begin with an extensive review of Brainspotting Theory around limbic countertransference and new developments in neuroscience regarding the difference between empathy and compassion. The teaching opportunities are designed to make available the open, integrative, free-form approach of Brainspotting to enhance presence and support clinicians in applying Brainspotting to all diagnostic categories, including Dissociative and Attachment Disorders.

    Attendees will learn neurobiological implications of the differences between empathy and compassion, impacts of secondary exposure to client’s content and have opportunities to clear these neurobiological reactions. Teachings will include developing skills for when the therapist loses attunement, falls out of the tail of the comet and ways to develop and apply expansion model to self-care. Minimum requirement for attendance is Brainspotting Phase 1.
