EFT Level 1 Foundational Training - March 12-14, 2021

The Emotional Freedom Technique (sometimes called "Tapping Therapy" or "Tapping") works like emotional acupressure to quickly, gently and easily release the negative emotions and beliefs that are at the root of our problems and pain.

For clinicians: EFT is a proven, evidence-based technique that can be thought of as analogous to a technique like EMDR. In my experience, EFT is at least as effective as EMDR but is quicker to apply (less session time needed), and clients can be taught how to use the technique on their own between sessions.

EFT has been clinically effective in thousands of cases for both emotional and physical healing and has a proven 90% success rate (see supporting research summary).

This includes:

   • trauma and abuse  • panic and anxiety • fears and phobias  • love pain
   • anger  • guilt  • addictions  • emotional overeating and weight loss
   • insomnia  • sexual problems  • blocks to success  • and others

EFT has also been successfully applied to hundreds of physical symptoms, including chronic pain, asthma, fibromyalgia, CFS, carpal tunnel syndrome, high blood pressure, food and environmental allergies, and other conditions.

Emotional Freedom Techniques:

  • Can be easily learned by anyone.
  • Is usually rapid, long lasting and gentle.
  • Often works where nothing else will.
  • Is one of the best self-help techniques ever!
  • Can be applied in the heat of the moment to get immediate relief in difficult situations

The Level 1 foundational training is open to everyone. This includes people who want to use EFT for themselves, family and friends as well as professionals who want to add a powerful method to their toolbox to greatly increase the effectiveness of their practice.

If you are looking to become an AAMET certified EFT practitioner, Level 1 is a prerequisite to the Level 2 Practitioner Training and AAMET EFT Practitioner Certification.


More About EFT Level 1 Foundational Training

At this Foundational EFT training seminar you will learn how EFT works, see live demonstrations, and have opportunities to experience it yourself, if you choose. You will also learn the basic version of EFT that you can use on your own.

We will do three group EFT exercises:

  1. In the first one, we will apply EFT to relieve a physical pain (eg. sore shoulder, back pain, arthritis in fingers, etc).
  2. In the second exercise, we will apply EFT to relieve an addictive craving. I will supply chocolate kisses for that purpose, but you are welcome to bring something of your own (eg. cigarettes, problem foods).
  3. In the third exercise, we will use EFT to relieve the pain from a painful memory.

Note: All exercises are optional, and you will not need to reveal anything about yourself or your memory.

What people are saying about our workshops:

"Thank you Stefan! You are a dynamic, fun, approachable speaker. I'm looking forward to level II." Sarah

"After taking Stefan's Level 2 EFT workshop, I regret not joining his Level 1 class. I would gladly have traveled the 2.5 hours each way to experience his passion, sensitivity, and commitment to EFT. Despite the distance, we are making plans to bring a family member to him for counseling." Carol

"I never felt 'talked down to' or lectured -- more 'shared with.' Excellent, informative, many tips and tricks. The presenter's enthusiasm and zeal was palpable, and it was presented in a very interesting and helpful way." Workshop participant

"The material I learned from Stefan's EFT workshops was immediately useful in my psychotherapy practice and in my personal life. Stefan's relaxed and enthusiastic approach was inspiring. He has an excellent grasp of the material and makes it accessible to people at all levels of experience."  Adele Marcus, Psychotherapist, Workshop Facilitator

"I just attended an EFT workshop facilitated by Stefan Gonick. One of the most exciting things about working with Stefan is his clinical expertise that fleshes out the EFT experience. He does an excellent job of explaining the how's and why's of EFT. I'm already using some of the tips I learned in my practice. I highly recommend Stefan's workshops. I plan on attending more." Richard Forbes MSW, LICSW

EFT-Alive is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the governing body for which continuing education units/credits are being requested. EFT-Alive will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content and in the treatment of program participants. The monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards will be the responsibility of the CE Administrator in consultation with the members of the continuing education committee.

While EFT-Alive goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there may be occasional issues which come to the attention of the staff which require intervention and/or action on the part of the conference staff or an administrator of EFT-Alive. The following procedures serve as a guideline for handling such grievances.

A participant must file a grievance in writing within ten (10) days of the event. Each complaint will be handled on a case-by-case basis by EFT-Alive. We reserve the right to respond to the complaint within 30 days of notification. If the participant expects action on the complaint, the following actions may be taken:

  • If the grievance concerns a Speaker, the content presented by the Speaker, or the style of presentation, the CE Administrator will pass on the comments to the Speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual.
  • If the grievance concerns a workshop offering, it's content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the CE Administrator will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action, the CE Administrator may:
    1. Provide a credit for another workshop or
    2. Provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee.
  • If the grievance regards the facility choice and grievance is founded, consideration will be given to changing sites for future conferences if the problem of concern cannot be trusted to be resolved in a mutually agreed upon fashion.
  • If the grievance concerns the EFT-Alive CE program, in a specific regard, the CE Administrator, in conjunction with the Executive Director of EFT-Alive will attempt to arbitrate.
