We did it again! We completed our latest ONLINE Brainspotting Phase 2 training. We had trainees from the US, Canada, Switzerland and the UK. Part of the emotional energy during the 3-day event was hijacked by the environmental crisis looming large in our small group, with extremely early snow happening at my house Saturday morning, followed by an emergency evacuation for our Colorado attendee later that day, we were all taking time to be with each other in a more thoughtful way.
So although I am only announcing 12 trainees, a 13th is 2/3 of the way there to being officially completed, and we will work to make that happen when they are safe and ready and able to focus again.
Please join me in welcoming these newest Phase 2 trainees to the Brainspotting community (in no particular order): Julie Burke, Kara Serasis, Erika López, Angela Thompson, Danielle LeRiche-Forkey, Wookaja Yukako Chang, Katherine Beckett, Gloria Hood, Davi Stein-Kiley, Majjham Warenfeldt, Michael Finegan and Lindsay Elin.
And as always, none of this would be possible without the essential support of our Assistants. Amanda Perez as my navigator was spectacular. Grateful thanks go out to: Christine Genovese, Carolyn Robistow, Kimberly Ward, Sheryl Wookey, Kim Knowlton-Young, Nikki Batta, Kristen Swart, Cesilia Gonzalez and Mehwish Issa. The generosity of time and commitment is deeply felt and appreciated.
