Why Knowing Isn't Always Enough with Deborah Antinori

You can’t see your brain, so it can be a challenge to understand why things feel or react the way they do.  Deborah Antinori has spent years studying the brain, especially from the perspective of why and how and where Brainspotting is working.  In this interview, she shares her wealth of knowledge while also making something so seemingly invisible into something super relatable.   You don’t want to miss:   The areas of your brain where thinking and stress response are happening, and why it’s more beneficial to address brain blocks in one instead of the other Deb’s analogies and visual aids for how to separate your thinking brain from your more instinctual brain The exact reason why even when you know something, you still might not take action on it or feeling motivated by it   PLUS, Deb shares some as-of-yet-unpublished research showing the lasting change resulting from one brainspotting session.    Deb Antinori, MA, LPC, FT, RDT, NCC is a Brainspotting Trainer.
