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 other challenging symptoms.
As Theraplay, Brainspotting is a highly relational therapy and open approach that can be integrated with any other modality. In Robert Scaer, MD. words “Brainspotting is based on the profound attunement of the therapist with the patient, finding somatic cues and extinguishing them by down-regulating the amygdala”; and it promotes insight. Working with Brainspotting and Theraplay can help parents not only process trauma related to the child but also promote metallization and empathy. By combining these two consequential and similar approaches, the therapist can be in the here and now, in attunement following the client's process while identifying, processing and realizing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms.
