Generational Brainspotting™ (GBSP™) combines Somatic Archaeology© and Brainspotting© for a dynamic, generational healing approach to historical trauma. GBSP™ is indicated specifically to provide healing for seven generations of inherited familial and cultural patterns. Our focus is on developing positive aspects of inheritance, and reducing traumatic aspects, such as adverse childhood experiences, domestic and sexual abuse, addiction, anxiety, despair, grief, depression, attachment issues, survival coping mechanisms, stress biasing, adoption, war related trauma, genocide, ethnocide, immigration, and removal from traditional homelands. GSBP ™ is for those who wish to lighten the load for our children and future generations. Genetics, epigenetics, biogeneaology, cultural recovery, spiritual alignment, My Body, My Breath™ Card Deck techniques, and neurobiological resourcing all play a role in GBSP™.
Generational Brainspotting™ Trainings are broken down into two phases. Phase 2 expands upon the Phase 1 Training (above) addressing work with children, veterans, families and communities. This involves protocols for healing sexual abuse/assault, for balancing the endocrine system, for generational chronic pain and addiction, along with the application of My Body, My Breath™ Card Deck. We incorporate dyads and somatic meditations, we have discussions and demonstrations of skill sets to help develop professional and personal practice of generational recovery.
Brainspotting© (BSP©) is a powerful trauma recovery model that is based on the premise, “Where we look affects how we feel.” BSP© locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. It is the brain activity, especially in the subcortical brain that organizes itself around that eye position. This brain activity organizes itself around that eye position. BSP© was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D. Over 13,000 therapists have been trained in BSP© (52 internationally), in the United States, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Africa.
BSP© is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. BSP© gives us a tool, within this clinical relationship, to neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind and its cognitive and language capacity. BSP© works with the deep brain and the body through its direct access to the autonomic and limbic systems within the body’s central nervous system. BSP© is accordingly a physiological tool/treatment which has profound psychological, emotional, and physical consequences.
