Deepen Your Expertise

Emotional Freedom Techniques Professional Skills 2 builds on the information and skills you learned in Professional Skills 1.

You'll gain additional tools, knowledge and experience, allowing you to effectively address more complex issues.

As in PS1, the emphasis is on increasing the scope and breadth of your EFT skills within the context of established trauma-informed protocols. You will gain increased flexibility and confidence when using EFT in your clinical work. We’ve added a fifth Zoom session to PS2, allowing for more supervised practice time.

After you have completed PS 2, you can further increase your expertise by joining ACEP's EFT Certification Program. 

 

"EFT Professional Skills 2 is an excellent resource for mental health clinicians working with clients with a wide range of psychological and trauma-related conditions. This training is filled with practical and creative techniques for reducing a client’s anxiety and stress, facilitating further work using trauma-informed treatments. I recommend this workshop to all therapists looking to enhance their clinical skills, whether you are a mental health trainee or a more experienced professional."

Marlene Steinberg, MD

 

"The online format and organization of the class materials made learning fun and easy. The instructors and the course content were concise, clear and thorough. I feel much more confident in my skills and ability to implement EFT effectively with clients."

Kelly J. Myers, PsyD, LP, EEM-CLP
