This training is designed to introduce and train practitioners to perform EFT. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and is commonly referred to as "Tapping" or "psychological acupuncture" "acupressure for the emotions". The developers of EFT see it as being similar to acupuncture without the use of needles. EFT is a powerful method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease as well as addictive behaviors. Sometimes called EFT (or "tapping”) is a highly focused energy psychology method that rapidly releases the emotional impact of stressful or traumatic life events from the body-mind system. As clients bring their attention to distressing memories and symptoms, practitioners walk them through a process of voicing specific statements while tapping on a series of acupuncture meridian points. This activation appears to reduce levels of stress while stimulating processing of previously stuck emotions and habit patterns.
EFT works for individuals with goals to improve their overall quality of life, resolve behavioral health issues, recover from addictions, including drugs, alcohol and gambling, or those who wish to recover from both mental health and addictions.
Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. EFT can be performed by a professional as well as be taught to the individual to be used as a self-help, self-regulation application. Published clinical trials showing EFT to have at least moderate effectiveness include meta-analyses for the application of EFT with regards to anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
EFT LEVEL 1 The Basics
The preparation for the EFT Level 1 includes approximately 3 hours of advance work, including watching several short online videos and the reading of 2 articles that explore both the history of EFT and the scientific premises for how EFT works. Note that last minute signups will not be allowed without contacting us due to this requirement.
EFT Level 1, The Basics, is the foundation of any EFT training. It covers the core aspects of EFT with a focus on how you can use tapping as a self help tool and how to teach your clients how to apply it as a self-regulating technique.
