Description

What do you do with anxiety and trauma clients who do not improve?

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, freeing a path for spontaneous insights and clearer thinking.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a comprehensive mind-body treatment that 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 an effective brief therapy and belongs in every therapist’s tool box.

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
  • 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.

Robin Bilazarian, LCSW, DCSW, DCEP, AAMET Related seminars and products: 3


Robin Bilazarian, LCSW, DCSW, DCEP, AAMET (Diplomate in Energy Psychology), and International Certified Master EFT Trainer, is a brief therapy expert, author, and speaker who uses passion and humor to share a wealth of knowledge and her twenty years of experience integrating EFT into mainstream mental health treatment. She is the author of the Amazon best-seller Tapping the Mighty Mind: Simple Solutions for Stress, Conflict, and Pain. Her passion is to bring these rapid, thorough and gentle meridian and cognitive-based techniques into mainstream clinical mental health treatment. 

EFT is a well-researched, comprehensive, mind-body treatment that rapidly desensitizes unwanted thoughts, emotions, and connected physical reactions. EFT goes beyond supportive counseling and is actual treatment. It’s surprising how quickly turmoil dissipates; clients are usually better in one session - even if the issue is long standing. 

Robin obtained her MSW degree from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill and interned at Duke Medical Outpatient Psychiatry. Her more than thirty years of clinical practice includes employment in all levels of mental health treatment, including private practice and using EFT in a community mental health center and with medical staff.  She was recruited and worked for fourteen years as an internal Employee Assistance Program counselor, bringing these highly effective, short-term techniques to medical staff and students in a regional trauma hospital. Her trainees also included police, fire fighters, first responders, educators, city workers, and others. She ran numerous internal and external EFT workshops, including psychiatric rounds and community conferences. She speaks nationally and internationally on this topic and presents frequently for NASW and Rutgers University. She is a sought-after expert in working with anxiety spectrum disorders.

Objectives

  1. Analyze the origin and efficacy of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) including peer reviewed, published research.
  2. Implement self-applied, light touch or tapping on acupoints to calm and rebalance the body system while thinking about disturbing upsets to create a desensitized state as measured by continuous dropping of the SUDS level.
  3. Distinguish that EFT is a mind-body treatment that desensitizes unwanted thoughts, emotions and physical discomfort.
  4. Use exploratory questions to elicit the first or worst defining event and how to treat in all manifestation in the past, present and future.
  5. Demonstrate EFT techniques for stress, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder and panic and traumatic events.
  6. Investigate how EFT can greatly diminish OCD-frustrating compulsions and unwanted habits.
  7. Utilize a two-prong approach to treating social anxiety: EFT and social skill building.
  8. Justify why EFT works in conjunction with and beyond talk therapy and how it often cuts quickly through resistant problems.
  9. Practice working with pain reduction using acupoints and psychological constructs of metaphors and emotions.
  10. Determine the ethical concerns of not working outside the knowledge base and obtaining ongoing “permission” to use these methods.

"Thanks for a user friendly set of techniques! Highly recommended!"

Jeannette B

"Excellent program, I'm glad to have learned so much. I was also impressed with the complex use of technology. I would have liked to hear the data and science first (why should I pay attention, so to speak), and then how to introduce it to patients, followed by the techniques. It jumped around quite a bit so I will have to re-organize my notes. "
