Developed in 2003 by Dr. David Grand, PhD, Brainspotting is a technique used to assist people in accessing, processing and overcoming trauma, negative emotions and pain. Dr. Grand discovered that where you look affects how you feel.
According to therapist and creator David Grand, the direction in which people look or gaze can affect the way they feel. During brainspotting, therapists help people position their eyes in ways that enable them to target sources of negative emotion. With the aid of a pointer, trained brainspotting therapists slowly guide the eyes of people in therapy across their field of vision to find appropriate “brainspots,” with a brainspot being an eye position that activates a traumatic memory or painful emotion. Practitioners of the procedure believe it allows therapists to access emotions on a deeper level and target the physical effects of trauma.
