Emotional Freedom Techniques Professional Skills 2

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.
