Caitlin_WilliamsEmotional Freedom Techniques - EFT®: An Introduction and Review of EFT for Trauma Treatment

by Caitlin Williams, MEd, LMHC


Emotional Freedom Techniques or 'EFT®' is a powerful energy therapy that involves tapping on acupuncture points to relieve emotional distress. This technique is based on the belief that a disruption in our energy system is the cause of negative emotions. It has been shown to be very effective in the rapid treatment of phobias, anxiety, depression, PTSD and more.
