May 22, 2019 | USD $229.99 | Portland, Maine
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Tapping: Evidence-Based, Mind-Body Treatment Approach to the Anxiety Spectrum Disorders and Pain is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 22, 2019 at Fireside Inn & Suites Portland, Portland, Maine, United States of America. Target Audience • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychotherapists • Marriage & Family Therapists • Nurses • Addiction Counselors • Occupational Therapists • Case Managers • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: The anxiety spectrum exemplifies the disorders where emotions override thought. Fragmented memories get stored in the body. The Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) collapse this uncomfortable emotional and physical reactivity; therefore, freeing a path for spontaneous insights and clearer thinking. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a comprehensive mind-body treatment that rapidly desensitizes three areas: unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical reactions. EFT combines physical interventions derived from restorative (self-applied) acupressure theory with cognitive interventions. EFT is an evidence-based practice with over 100 published studies. One published study demonstrated a 24% decrease in cortisol (stress hormone) level in the EFT group. (Energypsych.org) EFT is effective brief therapy and belongs in every therapist’s toolbox. Transform your clinical excellence; bring EFT into your practice and treat resistant problems that other methods failed. This seminar focuses on cutting-edge techniques of EFT to treat the anxiety spectrum disorders, including: • Phobias • Generalized Anxiety • Social Anxiety Disorder diagnoses • Panic • OCD • Acute Traumatic Stress Reactions These mind-body methods are emerging into mainstream mental health, trauma treatment, coaching, employee assistance programs and sport psychology arenas as a rapid, effective, non-invasive, calming, desensitizing tool. Do not miss this opportunity to learn evidence-based techniques you can use immediately with your clients and improve treatment outcomes. Course Objectives: • Explain the origin and efficacy of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) including peer-reviewed, published research. • Implement self-applied, light touch or tapping on acupoints to calm and rebalance the body system while thinking about disturbing upsets – to create a desensitize state as measured by continuous dropping of the SUDS level. • Distinguish that EFT is a mind-body treatment that desensitizes unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical discomfort. • List exploratory questions to elicit the first or worst defining event and how to treat in all manifestation in the past, present and future. • Demonstrate EFT techniques for stress, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder and panic and traumatic events. • Describe how EFT can greatly diminish frustrating OCD compulsions and unwanted habits. • Utilize a two-prong approach to treating social anxiety: EFT and social skill building. • Describe why EFT works in conjunction with and beyond talk therapy and how it often cuts quickly through resistant problems. • Explore working with pain reduction using acupoints and psychological constructs of metaphors and emotions. • State the ethical concerns of not working outside knowledge base and obtaining ongoing “permission” to use these methods.
