brainspotting
« on: April 26, 2019, 10:00:11 PM »
Has anyone had success with using the brainspotting therapy? There is now a new alternate to that which I am looking for information on. The new method uses an item that gives you a positive feeling so when you are in the negative spot, you can learn to go to the positive spots feelings. I have been unable to find literature on this. It sounds promising to me but I need to know more.
thanks

My T uses brainspotting, among other methods. He tried it with me but I didn't notice anything (!) and so he moved onto a totally different method.

From what I understand, brainspotting is an offshoot of EMDR, designed to help people who would be overwhelmed with EMDR, but I could be confusing things. My T didn't even consider EMDR for me.
