Tapping Out of Trauma

Tapping out of Trauma into Healing and Health

This three-day program adheres to the course curriculum for Levels 1 & 2 training with special emphasis on addressing trauma. It is designed for therapists and counsellors in mental health, addictions, suicide prevention, youth services and family wellness and delivered as an on-site group training.

Learn to use EFT to address even the most distressing memories and experiences that can lead to diminished self-worth, lack of healthy boundaries in relationships, loss of life purpose and inability to take action for one’s own benefit. EFT works to keep the client feeling safe, with minimal emotional overwhelm and able to take those deeper dives to uncover and energetically clear initial traumatic experiences.

EFT has proven in many studies and trials to be sometimes more than twice as effective as conventional talk therapy alone. Clients have resolved even the most traumatic experiences in a few sessions that may have taken months, even years of psychological therapeutic approaches. In one clinical trial, individuals with PTSD achieved comparable results in 6 sessions to those who received 15 sessions of cognitive behaviour therapy.

Emotional Freedom Technique tapping is an invaluable tool for helping those who help others manage their own distress, overwhelm, burnout and fatigue. Therapists, counsellors and support staff have a special need for self-care in order to be present and available to those they serve.

The Science Behind EFT Tapping

Emotional Freedom Techniques has produced remarkable and statistically significant results in numerous clinical trials designed to demonstrate the efficacy of the technique. It has been shown to be measurably effective in creating positive and lasting change with a number of issues.

Testing before and after 2 – 4 day workshops has clearly shown:

  • Corisol (stress hormone) declined by 37%
  • Anxiety declined 40%
  • Depression down 35%
  • PTSD symptoms down 32%
  • Physical pain reduced by 57%

Canadian researcher Dr. Dan Benoit discovered that 2 sessions of Emotional Freedom Techniques was equivalent to 5 Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) sessions in terms of effectiveness. The outcomes of EFT sessions were later shown to have more sustained and long lasting effects.
