Brainspotting: a relatively new form of treatment that taps into the body’s innate ability to heal in order to reduce and eliminate the impact of unresolved trauma, negative beliefs, and emotional distress. Brainspotting seems to activate the body’s innate ability to heal itself from trauma. Brainspotting therapists use “dual attunement,” a process through which the therapist simultaneously attunes to the brain-body response of the person in therapy. Brainspotting works primarily on the limbic system, a collection of brain structures that play a role in emotion, long-term memory, cognition, motivation, impulse control, and several other psychological factors that can affect well-being.
