The Evolution:

My name is John R. Edwards, and I am an LCSW with a private practice in Oakland, CA.  Throughout my career I have pursued multiple trainings in different modalities so that I can be best equipped to assist my clients heal, recover, grow from trauma and emotional pain and transform their lives.

In January of 2018, after much debate with myself regarding which EMDR training I should take, I happened upon Brainspotting.  I honestly don’t remember how I found Brainspotting but the universe brought it to me.

I completed Brainspotting Phase 1 training in February 2018 in Sacramento, CA.  During the training, I was blown away at the impact that the Brainspotting process had on healing and recovery.  This was from observing the demonstrations of the various set ups of Brainspotting as well as practicing the set ups with other attendees at the training.

EMDR is known for its impact and “speed” and many of clinicians who are trained in Brainspotting were initially trained in EMDR.  Many of these clinicians describe Brainspotting as EMDR on "steroids" due to powerful impact it can have on emotional healing and recovery.

Since that February 2018 training, I have completed Phases 2, 3, 4, Brainspotting for Addictions, Reframing and Reprocessing Language in Brainspotting the latter two I attended in Vienna, Austria and most recently a MasterClass in Brainspotting.  This is how much I believe Brainspotting is valuable to me and my work with helping others.

More about Brainspotting

David Grand, PhD is the founder and developer of Brainspotting. Dr. Grand was one of the first clinicians to be trained in EMDR and went on to develop Natural Flow EMDR.  It is from this place that he noticed a shift in one of his clients and his curiosity lead to discovery of the Brainspotting process.

The idea for this Brainspotting Training for Therapists of Color

This idea popped into my brain as many ideas do and I decided to pursue it.  I have spoken with Dr. Grand and other leaders in Brainspotting Community about developing this specific training.

 

Often in trainings, clinicians of color experience an alarming number of microaggressions and macroaggressions.  Because Brainspotting training is didactic, highly experiential and intense, I thought it would great to have an atmosphere where the training can be provided with intentionality and an awareness of Cultural Humility.

That’s it really.
