Brainspotting and art therapy
Brainspotting (spotting meaning discovering) is a method used to aid the processing of traumas. It was developed in 2003 by David Grand, an American psychotherapist.
- processing stressful experiences
- disorders caused by an imbalance in one’s stress coping mechanism
- chronic pain
- eliminating blocks and fear, helping to increase the performance of artists in general, including writers, actors and musicians
- exam anxiety
Art therapy and Brainspotting are two therapeutic approaches that are very productive when combined. Brainspotting uses the brain’s ability to process experiences in a particular way. There are different ways of combining art therapy and Brainspotting. Both approaches mutually inspire each other in a lively, flowing and encouraging dialogue, which aids each client individually.
