Emotional Freedom Technique - learn Tapping to reduce trauma related symptoms.

Designed to reduce the negative effects of trauma and PTSD, tapping is research-based and proven to be long lasting. Unlike numerous other methods, EFT is exceptional in that it does not require re-experiencing a traumatic moment. Clients can alter the fight-flight response in their lives - whether they choose to talk about the painful event or not.

In fact, favourable changes in blood flow and cortisol levels were noted after just one hour long session. This is unlike other forms of trauma treatment where PTSD clients can experience symptoms for as much as three or more years.

Watch clinician and EFT trainer Bonnie Grossman, LPC, and Phoenix Crosby, LCSW, MFT, to learn the tapping technique in an experiential training, honing a technique that you can use immediately with clients. Bonnie will take you step by step through the technique and guide you through treatment planning and psychoeducation.
