Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as ‘EFT’ or ‘Tapping’) is known by the American Psychological Association as an “evidence-based” intervention for psychological disturbances such as depression and anxiety. It employs a combination of ancient Chinese acupressure (light pressure or Th EFT used on oneself, others or groups does not require a license or academic degree to perform.
EFT is widely used and studied by the Veteran’s Administration in the United Stated and is one of the treatments of choice for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, the Veterans Administration has been the source of hundreds of scientific studies published in prestigious psychological journals as well as a plethora of case studies. EFT is also used by psychologists and psychiatrists at the well-known Kaiser Permanente Hospital system in the Western U.S. as a treatment to mitigate depression, anxiety and chronic pain.
Researchers and practitioners from Yale and Princeton Universities are among the growing numbers of exploration of the technique by academics. The American Medical Association also grants Continuing Education Units to physicians and nurses who study the technique.
Your instructors, Marky Stein and Amy Frost are the first Career Coaching practitioners now known to apply this tool to the emotions surrounding job search and career transition. Marky was able to assemble hundreds of case studies while she was a Senior Career Counselor with clients from entry level to executive at the San Jose, CA One-Stop federal government funded American Job Center, “work2future”. Marky also spearheaded the effort to turn work2future into the first and only “Holistic Career and Life Coaching” center of over 2,500 American Job Centers across the U.S. EFT was taught to the entire youth and adult career coaching staff and used as part of this holistic approach.
Amy is well-known for her use of the technique for veterans, leaders and victims of man-made and natural disasters, The Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP), one of the proponents of EFT recognized Amy with a “Humanitarian of the Year Award” for her work with Energy Psychology and EFT. Prolific scientists and authors like Dr. Dawson Church and Dr. Bruce Lipton also have published a number of books and studies under the auspices of ACEP regarding the benefits of Tapping.
This course is a combination of presentations performed by Marky Stein and Amy Frost at the National Career Development Association’s Annual Conferences in 2019 and 2022 and the Career Thought Leader’s Annual Symposium in 2019. It presents a straightforward look at the theoretical underpinnings of EFT as well as a hands-on approach to using it, not only in matters of career development and job search, but also in Life Coaching circumstances such as relationships, finances, peak performance, weight loss and health.
In a word, EFT promotes positive emotions while addressing the causes of negative emotions such as the “disruption” or blockage that take place in what the Chinese call “energy meridians” as well as the negative thought patterns and beliefs that Cognitive Behavioral Therapists recognize as the root of mental health issues.
Students in the class will be able to master basic EFT “scripts” and tapping protocols as well as Stein’s newest creation, “Activating Choice Technique”. Students will be provided with resources and examples of Tapping.
