Emotional Freedom Technique’s Tapping provides a quick, easy-to learn solution for PTSD and trauma clients.

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.

And EFT can remediate PTSD in only 4-10 clinician-led sessions.

In fact, favorable 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, to learn the tapping technique – and join fellow clinicians in a day of experiential practice, 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.

Purchase today for a day of skill-building to help clients in their trauma recovery.
