Utilizing Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) for Emotional Regulation

Mary NurrieStearns, LCSW, RYT


Teach your clients how to lower intense emotions and cultivate emotional resiliency with EFT. An evidenced based intervention, EFT is easy to learn and to utilize clinically to help clients generally reduce emotional intensity and experience emotions within the window of tolerance. It is a protocol for clients to:
1) express emotions and/or physical sensations
2) while tapping on acupressure points that reduce cortisol
3) while expressing some agreed upon statement of self – acceptance

EFT is effective for teaching emotional resilience skills, lowering anxiety and PTSD, managing cravings and cultivating self-acceptance. It is an exposure therapy combined with somatic and cognitive components. It is effective in individual and group therapy settings.

Learning objectives:
Learn what EFT is, including the set up statement and tapping protocol.
Learn how to use in clinical settings for emotional regulation

Deepen your understanding of EFT with clinical examples of utilizing EFT
