SBCAMFT CE Event: Trauma Therapy that Works: Introduction to Brainspotting

Who: SBCAMFT members and Non-SBCAMFT members  (Join now!)

Where: Zoom

When: April 24, 2024 12:00-2:00 p.m. 

Description: This Introduction to Brainspotting mini-course introduces students to the theory, research, and best practices of Brainspotting, how it works to heal trauma and other mental health conditions, education on the importance of reaching the deepest regions of the brain in order to have resolution, and the basic ‘frames’ used to engage clients via a specific eye position, or “Brainspot,” so that they can process their trauma and be relieved of other diagnoses and mental health issues.

Objectives: After taking part in this course, participants will have greater understanding of the clinical skills required to successfully alleviate the suffering of their clients who are coping with the various trauma responses (Flight, Fight, Freeze, Fawn) from past trauma. Attendees will learn how Brainspotting can heal a myriad of mental health conditions effectively along with the importance of always following their clients’ lead as they process, assuring that participants won’t exert undue influence with their own values, beliefs, or identities that may adversely impact the clients’ therapeutic process. They will go back to their practices with an understanding of this new modality, having learned the foundation of alleviating the symptoms of unresolved traumatic stress such as anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, rage, hypervigilance, recurring nightmares, dissociation and chronic fatigue. Participants will move forward with the knowledge that they can work within their scope of practice and competence and follow the ethics of staying current with developments in their field through educational activities or clinical experiences while treating clients with the goal of reducing their disturbance levels on a scale of 0 to 10 in each session and throughout the therapeutic process.

Cost: $10 for Student/Associate members, $20 for SBCAMFT members, $25 for all State CAMFT members, and $30 for Non-SBCAMFT members (Join now!)
