Now that the body of peer-reviewed scientific research has lent credibility to the emerging field of Energy Psychology, skeptical therapists have increasingly incorporated tapping protocols into their usual methods to boost their effectiveness. This workshop will demonstrate how to use a variation of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), the most popular form of energy psychology, based on tapping selected acupuncture points while target scenes are mentally activated. You’ll learn:

  • A basic tapping routine you can use with clients and apply in your own life
  • How to use EFT with PTSD, anxiety issues, relationship conflict, and other difficult conditions
  • How to integrate EFT with your current methods to regulate emotional over-arousal and escalating patterns of reactivity while creating greater personal empowerment
