For Indigenous Therapists:
Regina has assisted with the BIPOC Brainspotting Trainings for the last few years, and absolutely is honored to support new BIPOC brainspotters. Due to the limited number of Native and Pacific Islander clinicians taking Brainspotting training Regina Faridnia, LCSW and fellow Brainspotting trainer, Steve Sawyer, LCSW also designed a Brainspotting training that would be focused specifically on therapists who are Indigenous to the Americas and Pacific Islands. This training allows an opportunity for our community to receive the training in an even more personalized and culturally embracing way. This training does include a historical and intergenerational trauma focus. If you are interested in Brainspotting Phase I or Phase II and identify as an Indigenous clinician please reach out to Regina to get on our waitlist for the next training.
Tribal & Reservation Organizations:
A Brainspotting overview is available at no charge to familiarize your organization with this technique and how it resonates and is relevant with regard to our community. We can also arrange workshops and/or a training in your community in person or virtually. Historical and intergenerational trauma are addressed in the training in a culturally informed/resonant ways
. This amazing modality can assist our communities to heal together. It is a trauma focused approach. It is a bottom up focused approach meaning that talk is not necessary for the brain and nervous system to heal. It targets the flight, fight, freeze in our brain and helps the nervous system to move into healthy regulation.
