Sports Injuries, Concussions and Surgeries Should be Viewed as Trauma and Treated with Trauma Reprocessing Psychotherapy : Shifting the Injury Recovery Paradigm with Brainspotting to Regain Peak Performance

Sport & Society | Who’s Body is it Anyways?
Sport and the Problem of Autonomy
Thirteenth International Conference of Sport and Society
Aarhus University Denmark 30th June-1July 2022

Abstract: When an athlete experiences an injury, concussion or surgery the expectation is they must “shake it off”, “pretend” it didn’t occur and return to play despite their feelings associated with the fear of reinjury. Brainspotting assists athletes in resetting their homeostasis to a calmer and more focused peak performance parasympathetic nervous system state. Various National and Olympian athlete case studies will be presented to display how the endured sports injuries, concussions and surgeries resulted in a sports performance decline and how through Brainspotting the athletes regained and expanded on their sports performance capacity.

“Building Mental Health Awareness in Changing World”

2nd WORLD MENTAL HEALTH CONGRESS
06-07 December 2021
Webinar

Abstract:
Prevent Mental Illness in Athletes by Strengthening Mental Health and Wellness

This presentation will explore what factors contribute to an athlete’s mental health and wellness deterioration. What specific cultural and systemic barriers athletes face in asking for mental health and wellness help. And how these barriers and systems can be navigated within participant’s sport communities. Specific athlete behaviors, signs and symptoms will be discussed which could indicate an athlete is struggling with their mental wellness. Various sports and exercise psychology interventions such as Motivational Interviewing, Relational Motivation Theory, Leadership Theory, Brainspotting, Visualization and Positive Self Talk will be utilized to educate participants on what each intervention looks like in practice and how each assists athletes in regaining, maintaining or expanding on their mental health and wellness. Participants will then learn how to confront and address the behaviors, signs and symptoms to start the process of getting an athlete to the appropriate interventions. Lastly participants will learn basic mental health and wellness strengthening practices aimed at preventing the development of a mental illness.

“Neuroscience of Peak Performance”

Brainspotting (BSP) is a very powerful brain-based intervention that has been widely used in the treatment of trauma and conditions that may stem from it. Nonetheless, BSP was discovered (by David Grand) while working with an athlete. Since then, BSP has also evolved as a powerful intervention for peak performance in different realms (sports, artistic, academics & corporate).

This course aims at teaching participants the neuronal substrates and underpinnings of Brainspotting as it pertains to peak performance. The presentations will cover the psychophysiological and neurophysiological variables at play while presenting data from stress profiles and brain scans. Participants will be able to identify and learn brain wave oscillations and patterns that correlate with peak performance and how BSP enhances this process.

Various psychophysiological and neurophysiological integrative modalities will be introduced and examined in how each compliment and expand on BSP’s effectiveness in increasing peak performance.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage with presenters to ask questions on how they too can integrate each modality into their BSP work with individuals seeking peak performance.

18 hours total over 8 weeks at 2 hours a week.

Brainspotting for Sports Performance, Injury Resolution, and Brain Health Optimization

With Paige E. Roberts LCSW LICSW CLT, Certified Brainspotting Therapist

Midwest Brainspotting Institute

3 CEUs

Brainspotting (BSP) is a very powerful brain-based intervention that has been widely used in the treatment of trauma and conditions that may stem from it. Nonetheless, BSP was discovered (by David Grand) while working with an athlete. Since then, BSP has also evolved as a powerful intervention for both sports performance and brain0-body health performance.

This course aims at teaching participants specific set-ups on how to effectively implement BSP into a sports performance setting in addressing David Grand’s coined sports trauma which includes; sports failures and in jury resolution.

This course aims at teaching participants specific set-ups on how to effectively implement BSP into a concussion-Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) resolution setting and how to advocate for your clients in working with an integrative team of concussion-TBI experts.

This course aims at teaching participants the neuroscience of how BSP assists individuals in strengthening their brain health optimization.

Objectives for this webinar:

  1. Express to athletes how BSP for sports performance can benefit their performance and the necessity to clear-detrain sports trauma plays a pertinent role.
  2. Integrate individual and group sports performance setups into their practice.
  3. Explain BSP as an effective treatment modality for individuals suffering from a traumatic brain injury-concussion-post concussion syndrome.
  4. Summarize the need to incorporate various other providers-modalities with Traumatic Brain injury treatment concurrently with BSP.
  5. Compute how BSP increases their Gut brain access for brain health optimization.

Group Brainspotting Experiential Workshop for Sports Performance Expansion”- Paige Roberts, LICSW, LCSW, PhD, IMD

2021 International Brainspotting Conference

Dr. David Grand PhD found when an athlete participates in Brainspotting (BSP) they regain or expand on their current level of sports performance. Traditionally BSP sessions are executed on an individual basis either in person or via telehealth modalities. With the time constraints imposed on youth, adolescent and professional athletes individual BSP sessions can be difficult for both the athletes to attend and sports team-organization-club to allocate time for. Therefore, the “group” BSP set-up for sports team-organizations was created to meet this identified need. Within this 110minute experiential workshop participants will learn how to present the “group” set-up and process to athletes and sports teams-organizations-clubs. How to concisely explain the science of BSP on how it assists athletes in fully recovering from sports traumas including concussions. And how even if an athlete has not experienced sports traumas they too can benefit from BSP by desensitizing the what ifs and worst case scenarios for the up incoming game or competition. As well as how to use their peak performance “zone” spot to their advantage when the pressure is on to compete. Lastly, participants will then engage in the “group” BSP process so they can walk away from this experiential workshop confident they too can implement the “group” BSP set-up within any sports team-organizations-clubs.
