Poetry, Prose, and the Power of Brainspotting is a webinar designed to introduce Brainspotting clinicians to the power of Brainspotting to unlock the creative writing process and use the client’s inherent creativity to deeply support the healing process. The webinar includes an introduction with my guest, James Diaz.* The webinar presents the basics of the creative writing process, Brainspotting applications with clients including client examples with different age groups, and Brainspotting and Writing group experiences. Two brief but powerful experientials are embedded in the webinar.
