…and WE DID IT! An in-person private Brainspotting Phase 1 training in New England is in the books.
We were generously hosted by Shortridge Academy in Milton, NH for this first return-to-in-person event in 2 years and 2 months (but who’s counting…?) for me as the trainer. We have now trained ALL of Shortridge’s therapeutic staff as well as a representative from Thetford Academy (in Thetford, VT) and Mondanock Family Services (in Keene, NH).
I am quite giddy to have been able to run an in-person event. I got to tiptoe around and see all of the practicum work, adjust arms, answer questions and whisper into ears as these amazingly talented practitioners learned Brainspotting. There were hugs and handshakes, and of course the best chocolate chip cookies around.
Please join me in welcoming these very talented colleagues to the Brainspotting family.
The Winnipesaukee Lakes Region of New Hampshire is incredibly beautiful! Check out these views!! (Kara’s from the top and Katherine’s from the shore. The ice is almost all out, and yes it was cold.)
Things keep changing and this is my latest update regarding Brainspotting Trainings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have been directed to hold ALL trainings online during this physical distancing time of pandemic.
The June online trainings went swimmingly and I continue to be amazed to see how well it works both for the trainer and the trainees. And with the online format, I am so excited to meet practitioners from across the country and abroad. Likewise, assistants are stepping forward to help new trainees achieve really high-quality experiences. Our network is growing stronger. There are many blessings in this uncertain time.
The Keene, NH/Monadnock Family Services training planned for October 16-18, 2020 will be ONLINE. This will be a Phase 2 training, replacing the cancelled April one. I have posted a January 2021 Phase 1 and a February 2021 Phase 2, both ONLINE as well.
The overall desire it to have practitioners trained to support clients – and each other – through this pandemic, and then we as trained practitioners can support the impact of COVID-19 aftermath, being as the longer it lasts, the more support the population will need. We have added material in the trainings to address Limbic Countertransference, trauma shock, racial justice focus, and the environmental and global existential crisis we are in, and ways to work with it for our clients as well as for ourselves.
Please forward this information to anyone you may know who is interested in learning Brainspotting in Phase 1 or in expanding their Brainspotting skills with Phase 2.
Note that there are cancellation fees for cancelled registration, please be aware.
Please keep calling and sending me your e-mails and let’s keep in touch through this historically unusual time.
