Brainspotting and Addiction: Helping Clients Heal

Greenwood Village, CO

Event Banner


People in recovery are often facing various challenges. They're working through their substance use disorder, while also struggling with trauma, stress and anxiety.  
Many mental health professionals are seeing the effectiveness of brainspotting, a therapeutic technique that lowers stress and anxiety and heals past traumas, in increasing recovery success rates.   
In this in-person event, Dr. Joanne Baum will present how brainspotting techniques are helping people in recovery by giving them the power to: 
  • Heal from trauma
  • Face former emotional wounds that make them feel stuck
  • Cope with current upsets
  • Lower stress and anxiety
During this event, you will learn: 
  • Three concepts behind brainspotting
  • The area of the brain that brainspotting targets and why it's healing
  • How brainspotting reduces stress
  • Two reasons healing trauma reduces the chances of relapse
