What is a Brainspotting Intensive Training?

Brainspotting Intensives are like no other Brainspotting trainings! Intensives are limited to 10 participants, and include didactic, extensive Q/A, and time for expansive experientials (2 per day). Over the course of the 5 days, everyone has the opportunity to "sit in the client chair" to do personal work, and an opportunity to "sit in the therapist chair," with direct coaching from the Trainer. We will also be paying particular attention to Brainspotting as "a neuroexperiential process for healing and expansion," reviewing & discussing David Grand's Keynote address from the Denver conference, “Brainspotting as a Neuroexperiential Process of Healing and Expansion.”

The cost of the training is $2000, with a minimum of $1000 to be paid at the time of enrollment, and the other $1000 to be paid by October 22, 2021. Financial assistance may be available, on request, based on individual need. You are responsible for your travel expenses, housing and dinners during the training; we will be providing light breakfasts, lunches, and snacks throughout the day.
