On Friday, December 6, 2013, Calder Kaufman, PsyD, LLP, clinical therapist on staff at Birmingham Maple Clinic, presented a fascinating workshop for his colleagues about Brainspotting. This treatment method, originated by David Grand, PhD, aims to treat trauma and anxiety in a powerful, direct way, often reducing the time it takes to heal in traditional talk therapy.
Brainspotting combines talk therapy with brain-based therapy involving eye movement, but focuses on “where we look” and “where our visual field is activated” as a key to unlocking the etiology of inner conflicts.
Calder explained that he incorporates aspects of Brainspotting into all of the treatment he provides at the clinic. He sees it as a more direct technique that moves more quickly to the actual conflict/s that interferes with a person’s functioning.
Calder Kaufman is a psychologist practicing Brainspotting at Birmingham Maple Clinic.
