Fascinating

Fascinating subject. Detailed exploration of how it came about and what it has been used for. As someone who is receiving brainspotting therapy for trauma, and who wanted to know more about it, I highly recommend. I particularly enjoyed the parts on how I could use it myself. Loved the narrator. Easy to listen to.

Clinically useful - great for therapists

Grand's contribution is quite remarkable, and I respect the academic openness and humility he exhibits in this book. I have used brainspotting in therapy alongside various methods that employ somatics and interoception, and this book not only gives a great recounting of how Grand developed the techniques, but gives great case studies and distinctions that can be immediately brought into the consultation room. I promptly began enjoying enhanced responses in my own life and in my work with psychotherapy clients in both group and individual settings.

I greatly appreciated Grand's respectful critique of the protocolized, technique driven approaches, including EMDR, and found that quite validating. His methods involve a balance between attunement and technique that is often underappreciated - depriving many clients of the results that can be achieved by it.

Along with this book, I read his article written with Dr. Corrigan, which has expanded my understanding of both brainspotting and how to leverage the mid brain orienting response more directly in therapy. I can endorse Brainspotting as a highly useful method that can bring elegant results for highly-attuned therapists.

Ask Dr. Paula

OMG! This is a excellent book for therapists who want a modality that really works. I have completed the basic training and can't wait for my next phase.. The material is easy to follow and the reader goes at a good pace. Love Dr. Grand's work!
