Birmingham Maple Clinic Therapist, Calder Kaufman PsyD, LP Licensed Clinical Psychologist, traveled to New York in October to meet with Dr. David Grand, the developer of Brainspotting. The purpose of this trip was for Dr. Kaufman to become a Brainspotting trainer himself. Calder enjoyed the experience in part because it drew therapists from across the world with only two being from America and the rest from France, Germany, Brazil, and Indonesia among others. After that weekend Dr. Kaufman secured his status as a “provisional” trainer and will do training sessions co-facilitated by an experienced trainer before going solo. Dr. Kaufman’s first Brainspotting seminars will be in Austin, TX and Ann Arbor, MI in March.
Brainspotting is a focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional pain, physical pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. To learn more about Brainspotting visit Brainspotting.com.
