Final Q and A, Close Training
Some FEEDBACK of participants
who agreed to us publishing it here:
I just wanted to share a special thank-you to you, for the excellent Brainspotting training that you did. I was looking forward to this training for a long time, and am so grateful for it! These online trainings can leave one feeling less energized than the in-person trainings because you don’t have the in-person connections and feedback. I really wanted to share my feedback with you and wish I could shake your hand and thank-you personally, but this will have to do. 😊
I was very impressed by the training and especially loved all the examples, videos and information that were so expertly delivered. You are so skilled and gifted in your work, and I really enjoyed learning from you! The techniques you taught were easy to learn, I appreciated the practice sessions. It really felt like you held a warm and supportive space for all the sharing that took place.
I look forward to putting these new skills to use, and then adding to them with more advanced training in the future. This provided an excellent foundation for my work. Thank-you so much for this wonderful learning opportunity, and for sharing all your wisdom and experience with us!
Good morning !!
Thank you very much. I love to share with you that it was a unique learning experience and a milestone in my professional life.
I am grateful that this great possibility has been generated to share with you your experiences and practices in a DOING that comes from a BEING a Brainspotting therapist!
Thank you very much for the generosity in your sharing!
Hug from Argentina, Cecilia.
Just wanted to say, I soo enjoy your openness, vulnerability as a professional therapist and I feel so grateful for this training. I have been so insecure about really starting a practice. Wednesday David said in an free online sharing that he learned most of people without specific background and its not a psychological model but mostly neuro experimental. This helps me with trust to learn that my strong intuition will help me to help children and adults. I can’t express my gratitude enough. My heart is so grateful!

Comments like this one have continued to multiply over the weekend, three wonderful days of training in "Brainspotting with Children and Adolescents" under the guidance of Monika Baumann and her great assistants.
Each demonstration has touched us and healed us; each practice has allowed us to continue enriching our therapeutic skills; and Monika's endless generosity in responding to continuous questions, comments and interventions has enriched us beyond belief.
I dare say that all the participants have left with a renewed commitment to continue expanding the knowledge and application of this extremely powerful tool that David Grand has delivered to the world!
I recommend this training 100%, even for therapists who do not work directly with children or adolescents, because ... what adult is not a child or an adolescent inside to discover, heal or rescue?

Thank you very much, Monika, for your generosity in transmitting your knowledge and for your enormous kindness. I really didn't want to disconnect the zoom! I would have stayed there for more days. A pleasure!
