07.4 Brainspotting reconnecting life to its fullness
Carla de Andrade, Clínica Saúde Batel, Brazil
The main goal was to change the way the patient faced the past and the traumatic and bad situations and events. A 19-year-old patient was bullied. It was considered “schizophrenic” and “depressive.” Because of this she was afraid of herself, of knowing herself; afraid that what people said about her was confirmed. She dropped out of school at age 14 and had hospitalizations. She began psychiatric treatment in 2009. She had drug poisoning, suffered from nightmares. She reports that he could not cry, that she had bouts of self-mutilation and was in the process of bulimia. During the period of one year and three months of sessions there were many challenges and great changes occurred. The most striking thing happened when, for the first time, she left home alone, took a bus and went to the consultation, which she described as “a great achievement”. They deserve to be highlighted: decrease of medications, no longer seen as a victim or feel angry with people. More focused, she makes plans for the future. Brainspotting provided relief from the traumatic events, gave support and structure so that the patient could now feel in balance and harmony. Her testimony: “The first step to that is possible. We are responsible for changing tomorrow. ” To achieve a happy ending is to believe.
