BRAINSPOTTING: A Brain Based Trauma Therapy that Works!

Brainspotting is a powerful, brain-based trauma therapy that bridges the gap between the mind and the body. Brainspotting accesses the deepest regions of the brain where traumatized clients store their trau-mas and survival terror. This access to the mid-brain and the brainstem allows deep transformation to occur. It works by identifying, processing and releasing core neu-rophysiological sources of emotional and body pain, trau-ma, dissociation, terror, and other challenging symptoms. Symptoms of unprocessed trauma, which include chronic anxiety, insomnia, and numbing, are notoriously difficult to eliminate through talk therapy.


  • Experience “Brainspotting” through a live demonstration
  • Understand the basic principles of brainspotting
  • Integrate these principles into your treatment plans for your traumatized clients
  • Earn 3 CEU credit hours. You must attend in full to earn CE credit.


  • Attendees will have skills to stay abreast of the most recent brainspotting breakthroughs in treating clients with PTSD
  • Participants will be able to metrically measure the efficacy of each session with their clients so it is clear if the client is benefiting or not.

Course Presenter

Lisa Larson LMFT #37375

Lisa Larson has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for the past nine-teen years. After 7 years in private prac-tice doing Solution Focused Therapy or “talk therapy:, Lisa experienced a trau-matic event that transformed the course of her life as well as her therapeutic orientation. Within one three week period, both Lisa and her teenage son flat lined (clinically died) from ana-phylactic shock from two different allergic reactions. Both have recovered.

Lisa was acutely traumatized and found that no amount of talk therapy brought relief. It was only after two sessions of EMDR that she was back to being herself. Inspired, Lisa began to train in the most powerful trauma mo-dalities available. After being trained by the founder of EMDR she met and trained with one of the top EMDR trainers and her colleague, Dr. David Grand. Dr. Grand founded “Brainspotting” after finding that fixed eye posi-tions in his EMDR work dramatically increased the effectiveness of his trauma therapy. Lisa became a Brainspotting Trainer to teach other therapists how to bring lasting relief to their traumatized clients.
