EFT for MFTs and LCSWs

Why Learn EFT?mona lisa

EFT is a body-mind approach that empowers skilled practitioners to discharge and resolve traumatic memories, phobias, compulsive thinking and stuck emotions.  By working directly with the amygdala in the brain, EFT can provide impressive results.

Clients love the sudden and sometimes dramatic shifts that EFT can provide, and it can be easily integrated into your existing methods.  There is nothing weird or “woo woo” about EFT—it simply works with a part of the brain that is non-verbal.  Tapping switches off the stress response in a way that words alone cannot.

Learning EFT in depth will empower you to help your clients in new ways.  Our Level 1 workshop includes cutting edge theory and technique for dealing with emotional trauma, big and small, along with working with cravings and addictions and physical issues.

Level 1 EFT is an excellent stand-alone training, and provides 12 CEUs for no extra charge (see below for details).  Level 2 EFT takes the work even deeper and together they prepare students for the Matrix Reimprinting training, an incredibly exciting new development in trauma work. 

There’s been a lot of hype around EFT, and while some are inevitably searching for a ‘quick fix’ or ‘silver bullet,’ serious interest continues to increase.  People are looking for it and EFT has helped many licensed therapists and social workers attract and retain high quality clients.
