Energy psychology (EP) (e.g. Tapping) is an evidenced-based approach (over 125 published studies) to treat trauma, anxiety, stress and other important clinical problems. This presentation will show you can use Emotional Freedom Techniques and other EP approaches to rapidly down-regulate the body so that your clients can better process and respond to stressful and traumatic events. Learn how these approaches can be used within a trauma-informed framework and integrated with other clinical skills. Discover how you can use these approaches both as an empowering tool for self-care for both clients and therapists as well as a rich and flexible clinical tool that allows for deep healing of traumatic events without abreaction and re-traumatization.
