“Best Practices for Brainspotting with Clients of Color”

Tiffany Wilson & Michelle Stevens

Brainspotting is quickly becoming a powerful and effective tool to use when working with individuals who have experienced trauma. For clients of color, this approach could revolutionize the healing process from the unique traumas they experience. Being a therapeutic approach that demonstrates a brain and body attunement process with a focus on the relational presence of the counselor and client, Brainspotting can help clients of color experience healing more profoundly than traditional talk therapy.
