As a Brainspotting Trainer it is my responsibility to provide the best training experience for you, therefore please read the following carefully.
The recent global response to the COVID-19 pandemic may seem severe in one light, but smart and careful in another.
By cancelling or postponing social gatherings or limiting attendance to 50 or 25, yes there is a business hit, but the health benefit may prove to outweigh that hit over time. By containing and preventing the spread of the virus in a seemingly severe way now, we will hopefully be back up and running sooner than if we don’t. 3 weeks of suspension sure beats 3 months in my book.
The trainings I have scheduled in Northern New England are still a ways out. The April Phase 2 in Keene is still scheduled to run at this date. Maybe the small size of our Northern New England gatherings will work in our favor as we typically have under 15 attendees. I will keep in close contact with the venues to assess their comfort and risk and we will publish announcements of postponement or cancellation when necessary.
If we do need to postpone, or if you choose to not attend a gathering right now, your registration fee can either be completely refunded, all service charges will be waived, or you can choose to use your registration fee for a future training with me. If you choose to attend a different training with a different trainer, I will refund your registration fee to you.
As we near the training dates, I ask each attendee to seriously assess your health and/or exposure status before coming together in a group setting. I ask that you not attend should you have even slight symptoms.
If we are in a training and find that an attendee is sick or becoming symptomatic, that attendee will be asked to immediately quarantine. Luckily again, since all attendees to my trainings are within reasonable driving distance, the complications with airline flights is not an issue.
We are being reassured by all major hotel chains that increased sanitizing measures, in accordance with the CDC and WHO, are being implemented. Some are reporting sanitizing all public surfaces, elevators, handrails, light switches and doorknobs on an hourly basis.
I sincerely hope that we are able to hold our trainings because in light of this pandemic, even more of our population will need support in healing. I believe that Brainspotting is a remarkably effective and creative tool to give clients the speediest route to recovery and balance that I know.
