In resonse to your query, Dr. Grand's Brainspotting book more than met my expectations. In fact, that's why I ordered six more copies. As a lay person, I wanted to share it with my therapists and other therapists who have helped me along my journey. They were most appreciative and interested in Dr. Grand's groundbreaking work. Thanks for asking.

David Grand's book, "Brainspotting: The Revolutionary New Therapy for Effective Change", is an excellent book for both the general public as well as mental health professionals. His anecdotes and stories, highlight what Brainspotting is and how it works, and makes for an easy read. But, Dr. Grand also expands on the more technical aspects of the treatment for therapists and those wanting to know more about the science of Brainspotting.
In the book there is an excellent glossary of terms and a listing of other resources as well. If you or someone you know suffers from PTSD, trauma, grief or any kind of loss than do yourself a favor and please read "Brainspotting."
Also, if you are an artist, actor or athlete struggling with your craft or you just want to get better at it, than read "Brainspotting" too.
I have used this treatment for every conceivable issue I can think of: trauma, relationship issues,
grief, sports performance and creativity enhancement. I have used it with firefighters, police officers, combat veterans, 9/11 survivors, athletes, artists, children, couples and people who have survived accidents and abuse. It is remarkable and the book tells you everything you need to know about this terrific resource and therapeutic tool.
Brainspotting can be a stand alone treatment or it can be integrated with other therapies along with the background and experience of the therapist. It is very much a client centered therapy and works consciously and unconsciously on thoughts, memories, emotions and physiological reactions or body memories.
Simply put, Brainspotting works and works extremely well. It never ceases to amaze me how this treatment can help others to help heal themselves. As David says in this wonderful book, "Where you look affects how you feel."

Dr. Grand's new book is incredibly well written and full of wonderful insights and techniques for therapists who are looking to powerfully enhance their clients' healing. I admire the clients who stay with treatment year after year. To be able to help speed up the healing process will be most welcomed and appreciated by those who truly are working hard, but are stuck. Thank you, Dr. Grand. Excellent work. Keep up the good work. Ms. Fitzgerald/NYC
