ONLINE Advanced Clinical Seminar: Brainspotting Couples Co-regulating (CC) 9-6 Central Time

September 17th - September 19th, 2021 • 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Seminar Overview

Let us go inside and reorganize the stories that live within. Individuals, Couples, groups and communities desiring to nurture deep, meaningful long-term relationships can achieve their goal by developing skills for self-mastery through conscious, intentional connection. Intentional connection is learning to have responsibility for regulating our collective neurobiology. “Brainspotting-Couples Co-regulating” (CC) is a framework to be used with couples, partners, groups, and communities. BSP-CC introduces four distinct therapeutic steps which interweave the following: Brainspotting; and four additional psychological theories (Attachment Theory, Imago Relationship Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, and Parts work).

Step one: Understanding Your History uses psychoeducation to help participants comprehend their familiar attachment patterns for relating to others, for managing physiological states, and triggers. We start at the very beginning. Understanding the stories they tell themselves and how they make meaning (both from past and to the present).

Step two: Reorganizing Your History Brainspotting assists participants in developing awareness of triggers and reactivity. Parts work may be need here with clients that have more severe developmental trauma histories. Brainspotting helps participants reorganize their history into a new present day coherent narrative.

Step three: Making Peace With Your History both teaches and practices safe conversations. Honors a grief process. May work with parts of self during this process.

Step four: Self-Mastery Over Your History integrates the couples’ prior work by using Brainspotting with dialogue to achieve self-mastery, let go of old stories, and live with intentional conscious connection.

Please note that the above steps are not linear. Participants can be at any one step and go back and forth as they gain more and more self mastery. Consider a spiral as a symbol for this process. Through lecture, demonstration and through practicum/triads, (one as therapist, one as client and one as relationship coach) students will learn to demonstrate the open, creative, integrative, free-form approach of Brainspotting while using Imago Relationship Therapy and Parts work as needed.
