Brainspotting is a powerful brain-based trauma therapy that accesses the deepest regions of the brain where clients store their traumatic experiences and survival terror. This access to the limbic system and brain stem allows deep transformation to occur. It works by identifying, processing, and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional and body pain, trauma, dissociation, terror, flashbacks, panic, and other challenging symptoms. Symptoms of unprocessed trauma are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy.

Brainspotting can be utilized to clear negative cognition and experiences as well as strengthen positive beliefs and states of being. This presentation will demonstrate clearing a negative experience and self-concept as well as increasing a desired, positive state of being and core beliefs.

Brainspotting was voted the most effective trauma treatment by the parents and survivors of the Sandy Hook massacre after a five-year study by the Sandy Hook Foundation comparing over 25 therapeutic modalities. 

Learning Objectives

1. Understand the core components of Brainspotting including how to apply Brainspotting to trauma, dissociation, anxiety, performance anxiety, somatic conditions, addiction and self loathing.
2. Understand how to use Brainspotting to step into positive states of being and positive self-concepts. 
3. Learn the theories and practice of Brainspotting through a live demonstration. 
4. Be able to explain why talk therapy is effective for some conditions, but not as effective for treating PTSD, unresolved traumas and the lifelong negative cognition.
5. Understand the neuroscience that allows Brainspotting to resolve long-standing trauma symptoms and negative self-beliefs.
6. List core symptoms of undischarged trauma in the body.

About the Presenter

Lisa Larson has been a licensed marriage and family therapist for the past twenty years. In 2005, Lisa experienced a traumatic event that transformed the course of her life as well as her therapeutic orientation. Lisa and her teenage son both flatlined three weeks apart from anaphylactic shock. They had unrelated allergic reactions and both fully recovered. Lisa was traumatized and developed a classic case of PTSD. No amount of talk therapy worked but after only two sessions of EMDR she was back to being herself.
