What is EFT?
Sometimes called "acupressure for the emotions,” EFT (or "tapping”) is a highly focused energy psychology method that rapidly releases the emotional impact of stressful or traumatic life events from the body-mind system.
As clients bring their attention to distressing memories and symptoms, practitioners walk them through a process of voicing specific statements while tapping on a series of acupuncture meridian points. This activation appears to reduce levels of stress while stimulating processing of previously stuck emotions and habit patterns. Do you want to learn more about EFT? - Watch our free video series.
What Makes This Training Special?
Includes live, virtual small group meetings with trained EFT expert facilitators. You will actually be doing video online practice sessions with another student. You can even ask for help from your highly trained EFT facilitator in real time. (Yes, we have solved that drawback to online training.)
Is tailored for mental health professionals, physicians, nurses and other licensed allied health professionals. (A course for coaches will be available soon.)
Includes demonstrations with detailed commentary to help you think like an expert EFT practitioner.
Is designed so that you will go deeper and faster than many other courses.
By the end of Level 1, you will have the basic tools you need to use EFT with many of your clients’ problems.
Learn EFT from an integrative framework that spans many areas, from cognitive-based therapy to interpersonal neurobiology to Qigong
Discover how to incorporate EFT with the needs of clinical practice such as treatment planning
Learn techniques that are usually taught in more advanced EFT courses
Understand how to use EFT from both a palliative care/symptom management approach as well as a trauma informed framework. And you will learn when to use each approach.
Learn from trainers who are licensed mental health clinicians with over 50 years of combined experience AND who are experts in energy psychology, trauma, addiction, Qigong and more.
Be able to get CME/CNE (physicians and nurses) or CE (psychologists, social workers, counselors, addiction counselors)
What will the training look like?
A 5 week, structured online program that allows you to learn EFT from the comfort of your own home or office, at times that are convenient for you
Mixed with 4, weekly LIVE virtual small group practice sessions with your own trained EFT facilitator so you can ask questions and practice the skills (just like you do in an on-site workshop). These video sessions let you hear and see the entire small group.
Each live session has two aspects:
1) Discussions/questions - you will get to ask questions and there will be discussions of important concepts
2) Practice (this is so cool!) You will pair off with one person in a virtual break out room. You and your partner will actually practice different parts of EFT. If you run into issue you can ask for help from your facilitator or your facilitator may just enter the room and observe. This is just like doing a practice session in a live workshop. Actually it is better because the ratio of students to trainer is 4:1.
You will also have access to a closed Facebook page so you can interact with fellow classmates and get your questions answered.
You'll get these powerful learning tools
VIDEOS of all faculty presentations that you can stream
AUDIO FILES for easy listening. You can download these files quickly and listen to them anywhere
PROFESSIONAL TRANSCRIPTS that you can study to deepen your learning. We’ve created full transcripts for each presentation so you can more easily integrate the key ideas into your work.

Coaches and other allied health professionals
ACEP is creating a parallel course geared to your needs. We expect it will be ready by the beginning of 2018.
Over the years we have found that there are enough differences between the needs of mental health professionals and coaches and other allied health professionals that it is advantageous to train them differently.
The economics of live training made that impossible. But online is different. We apologize for making you wait, but we had to start somewhere. Please let us know how much demand there is for a coaches/allied health training us by signing up on the wait list. The more people that sign up the more pressure we have to make this happen as quickly as possible.
Currently, ACEP is not planning to create an online course for individuals who want to learn EFT for self-help.
For more information, questions or concerns, contact ACEP - Alyson D’Alessandro | firstname.lastname@example.org | 484-380-2448.
ACEP is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Association
