STEPHANIE NEUMAN, LCSW
USING BRAINSPOTTING WITH FIRST RESPONDERS
Working with first responders or military personnel is a daunting task for many mental health therapists. Unfortunately, the opportunity to work with this class of professional is limited as their decision to seek mental health treatment does not come lightly. There is a large amount of stigma imposed on these professionals and many are still stuck in the “pull yourself up by your bootstrap” mindset. Breaking through this stigma may mean the therapist sitting with the professional has one shot to sell themselves and to sell their technique. They must be committed to their own journey and be able to articulate their passion to the first responder sitting across from them. As hard as this sale may be, it isn’t impossible.
In this presentation, Stephanie will show the typical therapist how to successfully change the life of their next first responder or military client. She will discuss her own experience as a police officer and how she was able to trust the therapist that changed her life. This presentation will give not only tips and tricks of the profession but also the confidence needed to sit with a daunting client and see magic happen.
STEPHANIE NEUMAN, LCSW, specializes in seeing first responders, victims of domestic violence or clients suffering from PTSD. She has been in private practice for over ten years, and before becoming a therapist served as a police officer. Stephanie will be presenting at the 2021 International Brainspotting Conference in July.
PARTICIPATION IS FREE FOR RMBI MEMBERS, OR $25.00 FOR NON-MEMBERS.

Do you have a Brown Bag topic you’d like to present? We’d love to hear your ideas. One idea is to present a case or share with others in a panel. It’s a great way to contribute and to market your practice!
RMBI hosts brown bag lunch seminars on Fridays throughout the year. These events offer a small glimpse into the practice, its benefits and many uses. Due to restrictions around COVID-19, we are currently unable to host in-person events.
