LEARNING OBJECTIVES

 

  • Communicate in layman’s terms our current theories regarding how Brainspotting works in the brain/body. 
  • Identify the brain mechanisms that inform us why Brainspotting seems to work as profoundly as it does.
  • Describe how the brain moves from dysregulation to regulation.
  • Contrast the differences between agranular vs granular isocortex functions, and describe why they matter in Brainspotting.
  • Locate the areas and describe the functions of the allocortex that assist in regulation (insula, hippocampus)
  • Describe the function of the main component of the "alarm system", the amygdala.
  • Communicate the function of the HPA axis in layman's terms.
  • Relate the importance of the survival programs that begin in the PAG (periaqueductal grey in the midbrain portion of the brainstem) in a manner clients can understand.
  • Describe the insula and Orbitofrontal Cortex functions (rather than the mirror neurons) for our embodied experience (Damasio's "the material me") and our capacity for empathy.
  • Experience how the cortical brain studying the subcortical brain upgrades your attunement – Self Spotting experiential exercise.
  • Explain how expansion may arise from an insular cortex and Basal Ganglia functional point of view.
  • Describe why the hippocampus needs to be "hip": explicit memory is evolutionarily designed to be updated.
  • Compare the two distinct anatomical and neurochemical pathways for fearful experiences – FEAR and PANIC/GRIEF/Separation Distress (from Jaak Panksepp, Affective Neuroscience), and how to “squeeze the lemon” in cases of anxiety, fear, phobias and other defensive survival responses. 
  • Learn and metabolize the neurobiological reasons to “WAIT” (Why am I Talking?) in working with clients.
