EFT is a practical, quickly-learned, hands-on technique for dealing with emotional distress and a wide variety of stress-related conditions. Clinical EFT is the evidence-based form of EFT validated in over 50 scientific studies, and includes 48 distinct techniques. 


This four-day workshop will train you in the full range of methods in the standard level 1 and 2 curriculum. It’s also intensely practical and hands on, with over 12 hours of supervised practice, expert demonstration and feedback.


The workshop has 16 modules (4 per day), with each module systematically building on the ones before. 


In Level 1, you will learn the anatomy and physiology of stress, and the steps of the movie technique, the most common EFT method, one that is particularly useful with traumatic memories. You will also learn how to use EFT for common problems like pain, addictive cravings, dissociation, phobias, and emotional flooding, as well as how to test the effectiveness of your work. 


In Level 2, you will learn EFTs three “gentle techniques” designed for use in cases of trauma and overwhelming emotion. You then practice techniques for dealing with problems the client considers too large or intractable, as well as how to use EFT to gently end a session when emotional work remains unfinished. You will discover how core beliefs are formed by early childhood experiences and how to shift them with EFT. 


Also covered in the training:


• Subconscious blocks to success

• Phone and video sessions

• Group work

• Special issues with children

• Using EFT within your legal scope of practice
