As you may know, stress and anxiety levels amongst children, students and their parents and teachers today are at an all-time high. High-stress levels have been linked to poor academic results in children, an increase in behavioral issues as well as adult overwhelm. However, a new evidence-based modality that has proven to decrease stress and increase self-esteem, resilience and improve coping has emerged. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), commonly referred to as Tapping, is often referred to as a combination of ancient acupressure and modern psychology. EFT is a brief novel intervention combining elements of exposure and cognitive therapy and somatic stimulation. It uses a two-finger tapping process with a cognitive statement. Ultimately, EFT is a stress reduction tool; a way of calming the body’s physiological systems, so you can think more clearly about your problem.
EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 120 different journal papers.
In this course, Dr. Peta Stapleton overviews the complete technique and how to apply it, and the research and evidence that has been conducted on stress, students and school environments. Dr. Stapleton is Australia’s leading EFT researcher and has led numerous world first clinical trials, including a brain scan study. This course is practical and hands-on (you will learn the technique) and enjoyable. Specific tips for using EFT with different age groups are highlighted, and extra resources and handouts are supplied.
