Description
Brainspotting has spread worldwide and you’ve likely heard great things about it, but what is it? This
introduction to Brainspotting for LADACs, Master’s level clinicians, medical providers, experiential therapists
and other helpers provides information, demonstration, and practice with Brainspotting tools that help people
move from dysregulation to regulation.
Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
Educational Goal

The educational goal of this workshop is for participants to increase knowledge about Brainspotting and be able to integrate Brainspotting regulation tools into their practice and their own self-care.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the “origin story” of the Neuroexperiential Model of Brainspotting developed by Dr. David Grand and colleagues.

  • Identify current status/locations of Brainspotting research.

  • Explain the concept of “Window of Tolerance” and its application, both to staff as emergency responders and to patients.

  • Facilitate patients in performance of a 10-minute session of Self Spotting for stress reduction, decision- making, and/or spiritual growth, as well as utilize the same exercise for one's own stress reduction, decision- making, and/or spiritual growth (i.e., clinician self care.)

  • Identify 2 or more Brainspotting tools that can provide dysregulated patients with significant relief in a short period of time, without "digging up" trauma work that their recovery structure can't support yet.

  • Explain how Brainspotting, a body-based practice, can be effective for people who "can't feel their bodies," whether due to trauma or neurodiversity.

  • Explain the cause of the phenomenon called euphoric recall and identify the specialty type of Brainspotting that is used to treat it.

  • Identify 2 or more additional Brainspotting specialties.

Rev. Christie Bates LPC-MHSP

Rev. Christie Bates LPC-MHSP is a licensed professional counselor for Mississippi (#2424) and Tennessee (#3670), and an ordained contemplative minister. She specializes in treating chronic developmental stress and acute traumas via Brainspotting – a highly targeted somatic/mindfulness practice. She has extensive experience working with individuals and families in recovery from substance and process addictions. This includes 12+ years of counseling, facilitation and program direction in residential treatment settings – including Cumberland Heights from March 2007 to May 2013.

 

Christie was instrumental in the establishment of Buddhist peer recovery communities in middle Tennessee in the late 2000s, while continuing her practice of 12-step family member recovery since she was 21 years old. She has served in full-time private practice for the last 6+ years through her sole proprietorship, Pāssati Counseling & Direction. A Board member of the Southeast Brainspotting Institute, Christie is also founder and facilitator of Body Justice Brainspotting, a peer consultation group of practitioners who use Brainspotting to support clients recovering from disordered eating and body image issues while treating the trauma of internalized weight stigma and discrimination.

 

Christie’s practice of Brainspotting began with training in Phase One in 2013. Since that time, she has trained in Phases Two and Three, and she assisted with Phase Four training in December 2023. Christie has also made use of a number of in-depth specialty Brainspotting trainings: A few examples are Spirituality, Religion & Contemplative Practice; Brainspotting with Emergency Responders and Veterans; Blindspotting (for breaking through denial); Brainspotting with Addictions; Brainspotting & Parts Work (typically “inner child” work). There is a full list at passaticounseling.com/brainspotting of other continuing education trainings she has attended.
