Public speaking anxiety is very common. Presentations are often required in high school and college. This small study demonstrates the effectiveness of even a single 20 minute instruction/application of EFT for this experience, also known as Presentation Expression Anxiety Syndrome (PEAS).
52 third year university students were given a public presentation assignment known to generate anxiety. They then received a 15 minute introductory lesson on EFT and were led in a single round of tapping, with a focus on public speaking anxiety and were then instructed that they could use EFT on their own. SUDs (Subjective Units of Distress) and HADs (Hospital Anxiety and Depression) Scales were used pre and post. 46 students completed the study with results showing a statistically significant decrease in anxiety, with no significant decrease in depression.
