Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) blends focused questioning with acupressure tapping to balance the human body energy system in relation to thoughts, memories, emotions, and physical tensions. The observable and measurable result of this flexible and powerful therapeutic tool is calmer affect, cognitive restructuring, and more adaptive behavior. EFT thus adds a somatic element to cognitive and behavioral therapies, and has been shown in recent research, published in The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, to be comparable in efficacy to EMDR. The difference is that EFT can be easily taught and self-applied. Integrated into a range of modalities, EFT is successfully used by counselors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and others in the helping and healing professions, and also by individuals for self-help.
This workshop is designed to show, through practical experience, how to use EFT to help others and yourself. We start with group work, demonstrations, and triads. Then through carefully guided hands-on practice, we apply the EFT process to the effects of painful past experience, limiting beliefs, compulsions, and physical pain. Through this process you will be shown how to:
• Use two techniques for processing traumatic experience
• Describe three EFT questions to approach any issue
• Apply EFT with groups and by telephone
• Ensure safety measures for both client and practitioner
Open to both health professionals and individuals interested in self-development and community work, this workshop counts towards the EFT Practitioner certificate of AAMET International.
