Clinicians from Calo Programs enjoyed three days of Brainspotting training (Phase 1) from one of the top Brainspotting trainers in the country. Steve Sawyer, LCSW CSAC, New Vision Wilderness Co-founder and Clinical Director conducted the training. According to Steve, "Like all of the Calo therapeutic interventions, Brainspotting is rooted in the power of attunement and relies on the security of the relationship with the therapist to generate the most effective healing possible."
Rob Gent, MA, Calo's Chief Clinical Officer who organized the training, noted "I love working with Steve. The opportunity for us to collaborate on trainings and put our clinical minds together provides our clinical team with unparalleled opportunities for personal and professional growth while fostering mutual support and teamwork."
Brainspotting training includes three days of neurological education, therapeutic interventions and experiential practicum where each clinician not only practices implementing various aspects of Brainspotting but engages in their own therapeutic reflection and processing. The training is the first in a two-part Brainspotting training sequence that all Calo Programs clinicians attend. Brainspotting is one of the many integrative aspects of Calo’s treatment because of its effectiveness in utilizing the interpersonal relationship to access, release and reorganize trauma stored neurobiologically and its coherence with Calo's other treatment modalities.
