To become a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner, you must complete an in-person 3-day Phase 1 and Phase 2 training. After Phase 1, start recording your sessions and document 50 sessions of practice. During this time, we will need to meet for 6 hours of case consult and technique supervision, and 2 of those hours must be post-Phase 2 training. There are forms to track both your sessions and our supervision time (see below). To complete Certification, there is also fee of $150 paid to David Grand. The new Brainspotter may choose to attend a 5-Day Intensive with David Grand himself in lieu of several individual supervision hours.
Ongoing Certification requires 100 sessions documented every 2 years and a fee of $100, so keep documenting your sessions.
To become a Certified Consultant, you must have completed Phases 1, 2 and 3, plus the 5-Day Intensive and to be actively accumulating experience and depth in your Brainspotting practice, and continue with case consult and supervision sessions. It is best to have completed the 3-day Master Class as well.
