Brainspotting can be used effectively with children, using simple, creative adaptations. This lively and experiential training will review the Brainspotting principles of “Uncertainty” and “The Dual Attunement Frame” in the context of the variability childhood and adolescent development, trauma responses, and attachment styles. The workshop will teach techniques and strategies for making age and developmentally appropriate adaptations to the core Brainspotting “Set-ups” for Outside Window, Inside Window, and Gazespotting. The workshop will also teach ways to integrate Brainspotting into established methods of child therapy (e.g., play, art, sand-tray therapies).

The workshop will review relevant aspects of child development (neurological, physical, social, intellectual, emotional) and their behavioral correlates, in the systemic context of 1—Anna Freud’s “Developmental Lines; and 2--the intersecting spheres of children’s lives (family, home, school, immediate neighborhood, and larger community settings.)

Additional topics relevant to Brainspotting with children, such as existential trauma, and community and group Brainspotting, will also be discussed. Brainspotting Phase 1 Training is a pre-requisite for this training.

5 –7 Bullet points summarizing main points of workshop.
