Brainspotting: Phase 1

Introductory Level

Three day 21-hour live training in-person.

If travel restrictions apply due to Covid-19, the training will be offered online. As of now, September 25, the training is being held in person in Hammond.


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 presence and 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.

In this introductory Brainspotting: Phase 1 training, participants will learn four basic brainspotting techniques. In addition, participants will receive an overview of the:

  • standards of care and professional practice for brainspotting practitioners,
  • research that supports the primary assumptions of brainspotting; and
  • challenges of research and evidence-based treatment for conditions such as Complex PTSD


Participants of this introductory level course participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize the standards of care and professional practice of the International Brainspotting Association.
  2. Describe the hypothesized neurological underpinnings of how brainspotting works.
  3. Summarize the research that supports the hypothesized way in which eye positions activate and accesses midbrain activity.
  4. Explain the uncertainty principle as it relates to brainspotting.

  6. Explain the importance of client-therapist attunement during brainspotting.
  7. Explain how the treatment frame is set and held by the therapist.
  8. Explain the role of focused mindfulness in brainspotting.
  9. Discuss the similarities and differences between the activation and resource models of brainspotting.
