PS-4:  ACEP Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner (ACAP-EFT)

Steps to Become an ACEP Advanced EFT Practitioner (ACAP-EFT)

  1. Complete ACEP EFT certification
  2. Use this link to complete your application for advanced EFT certification.
  3. Additional 50 hours of multi-session clients
  4. Integrated written Case and Video Presentation ($595)

    The main criteria of advanced certification are that the practitioner demonstrates advanced skills in:
      • identifying treatment goals,
      • discerning limiting beliefs & schema and discovering originating traumatic events
      • clarifying aspects of a traumatic/stressful event
      • assessing outcomes of EFT interventions and making adjustments based on those outcomes
      • tracking and managing the direction and intensity of the session

all while maintaining good rapport and engagement with the client so that the treatment is effective.

Basic certification focused on demonstrating that the practitioner knows how to perform the foundational skills of EFT.  ADVANCED certification focuses on how well the practitioner can put all basic skills together in an artful and competent PROCESS.  To this end, Advanced Certification is constructed somewhat differently than first level certification.

The student should be prepared to track the process of working with a client over several sessions from the beginning of treatment or the beginning of a section of treatment, where the client has a relatively vague complaint (presenting issue such as a public speaking phobia or anxiety) through the identification of beliefs/schemas/table tops to the identification of an originating event (table leg) from childhood/adolescence that supports those beliefs/schemas/table tops, through treatment of at least one of those legs and testing.

We would expect that this would take between 2-3 sessions.  The student should video record all of these sessions (more on this in a moment). The student will be expected to present a written report documenting the presenting issue, the underlying beliefs/schemas/table tops to the identification of specific events (table legs) that support each of those beliefs/schemas/table tops.   The identification of the emotional crescendos and aspects, the results of testing and follow up of at least one successfully treated specific event.

Depending on the length and number of videos, the student will either present the videos in their entirety or identify the time sequences in the various videos to demonstrate their interactions with the client.   The person being presented must be a client or remotely affiliated non-client such as a friend-of-a-friend or acquaintance.  (Cannot be a family member, personal friend or another student in the EFT training program)

5.  5 hours sessions of online one-on-one consultation ($695). These sessions are semi-structured and include a specific focus for each session. Each participant will be asked to demonstrate a specific skill. Students are expected to bring specific cases. You can bring a challenge, issue or brag).

6.  Enroll in the Science of Energy Healing online course and pass the CE exam (SPECIAL PRICE of $297 including CE hours if you have not taken the course previously. If you have, you'll just provide proof of passing the test.) Contact the office for a coupon code.

Total Basic Cost for Advanced Certification is $1587
