Brainspotting: The Neurobiology of Trauma and the Brain (3 July 2021)
This workshop will provide participants with new information about how trauma impacts brain networks and systems, the neurobiology and psychophysiology of trauma. EEG and Brainmapping images will be presented to show evidence of what happens in the brain after trauma and Brainspotting. Participants will gain a deep understanding of brain networks, the neurochemistry of the trauma response and how variables such as respiration, heart rate variability and skin conductance can be used to measure the progress of your Brainspotting sessions and how they can be used to optimise your clients’ healing.
Date: Saturday, 3 July 2021
Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm (Singapore Time) [Timezone Converter]
Mode: Online (Zoom)
Topics and Objectives:
1. Brainspotting and brain networks: See how Brainspotting may influence different brain networks (default mode, salience, attention, etc.) and open the doors to more optimal healing.
2. Neuroinflammation, trauma and healing: Learn how chronic trauma is related to neuroinflammation and how neuroinflammation may be part of the client’s symptoms.
3. Brainspotting setups and psychophysiology: Observe how inside window, outside window, gazespotting and other setups influence the client’s psychophysiology (heart rate, respiration, etc).
4. Neurophysiology of Brainspotting: Learn how Brainspotting influences brain wave activity and the possible mechanisms behind the dual attunement.
