Topic: When You Can Be Specific – With Aspects; And When You Can’t – Uncertainty

Address uncertainty regarding big and small decisions like picking a niche, staying in a relationship, pursuing a dream, or where to start in a tapping session! Possible approaches:
1. sneak up
2. list options a, b, c, d…
3. Find sensation and trace to early event
4. Vocalize worst case scenarios
5. Unfinished Conversation/ Empty Chair work with parts of self
6. Invisible Counselor session for clarity from guide or future self
7. Tap on resistance to specific future choices
8. Address Limiting Beliefs like “even though I can’t make this decision, I am unwilling to make this decision, it is not possible for me to make this decision, it is not safe for me to make this decision…”

Topic:Moving from Daisy Chaining to Specific Events

– Daisy chaining is sign that psyche is freeing up and flexible to fluid and rapid progress. Don’t confuse Daisy Chaining and spiralng- Daisy Chaining is when a client rapidly clears one specific event after another.
– Your clients issues (money, anxiety, stress, love) are actually a series of events that they summarize as an issue. Empower client to identify the events, and release them one by one.
– Move from multiple issues to one issue: It sounds like we’re talking about 2-3 things, which one do you hope to focus on today?
– Move from issue to event: When was the last time you felt this way? Was this issue triggered this week? Can you share an example? Does this remind you of another time in your life? Is this the first time you’ve felt this way?
– Move from event to sensory aspects: Where were you? Who was with you? What was said? What did you do? What did they do? What were you thinking as this happened? Speak to the clients learning modality
– People code memories through language. When they use words with a global meaning (stress, distracted, love, annoying) ask, “What does that mean to you? What was actually happening at that time? I want to get in your head. What was being said? What were you seeing? Hearing? Doing? What was happening?”
– Move from abstractions to situations. For example: Abstract: All men are bad/ The rug always gets pulled from out under me vs. One time when… my husband yelled at me/ One time when… I got a pink slip in my mailbox – Be present and curious, not pushy.

Topic: Tapping with Children & Adolescents

Student Case Study Shoutouts: Deanna, Christa, Natha
Questions: – What are the key differences between tapping with adults and tapping with children?
– How do you work with defiant or resistant teens?
 – How can EFT be used to help adolescents deal with weight issues and physical wellness?
– How can Energy Psychology help an adolescent deal with bullying?
– How can you introduce EFT to teachers and students? How can you use it in a classroom or testing setting? Hear from one tutor who empowered her students to achieve their best state-test-scores in years using The Basic Recipe?
Notes: – Keep Setup Statements gentle and simple, taking into account the child’s age, their exact phrases, and language that will make them feel accepted and loved – Kids respond quickly to EP because neural pathways are not as hardwired
– ALLOW resistance and defiance by mirroring the child’s feelings back to them (while tapping) ie. “This is so stupid. I hate tapping! What a dumb thing to do! Why is my mom making me do this! There is nothing wrong with me!”
– Introduce EFT to children with simple analogies. Use relatable explanations that normalize their fight or flight symptoms ie. “When you feel bad, 80% of blood goes away from your brain; How well are you going to do on a test if you only have 20% of your blood!?”
– Introduce EFT to parents by Keeping it simple too! Share the research and success stories. Draw parallels to the tools they already use ie. “Acupressure combined with talk therapy is really effective and I’d love to introduce that to your child. It is a tool they can use on their own when they feel low.”
– Adolescents feel alone and isolated after trauma, so engage their peers in group tapping. On this call we hear about a teen who healed the trauma of rape by feeling the support and validation of her friends in a group tapping session.

Topic: Surrogate Tapping

QUESTIONS COVERED: – What are the 4 components of any Surrogate Tapping session? – How is Surrogate Tapping effective despite the distance factor? – How does consent/ ethics fit into Surrogate Tapping? – How can we use surrogate tapping for a family member of a client? – How do we present Surrogate Tapping to clients whose belief system causes resistance? – What best practices clear their energy from ourselves after a session?

POSSIBLE SITUATIONS FOR SURROGATE TAPPING: – Sending healing intention toward someone who is undergoing surgery – Sending good will toward group of people in distress – A family member/patient who feels ill but doesn’t know how to tap – A patient who cannot tap due to physical restraints – A pregnant woman in labor who can’t tap – A crying baby on plane (…and his/her parents!) – A teen/client who prefers not to tap due to acne – A distressed pet

 BASIC STEPS

 1. Tap on any personal agenda you have toward their healing

 2. Ask person for a very clear healing intention 

3. Ask explicit permission 

4. Then…Tap on… “I am (name of person) and I feel (possible feelings)… about (name presenting issues)… its okay/its safe to release some of this emotion” STUDENT SHOUT OUT: Maria & Tanya!

These were the questions answered!

What questions can you ask pre-event to avoid sticky situations?

Where can you host events?

How do we price group programs in comparison to 1:1 sessions?

How can you be both specific and general at the same time?

How do you generalize in groups yet still target each individual?

What is a simple format for doing a group so I have a step by step plan/idea of what works?

How do you avoid possible abreactions or triggering if I’m the only EFT practitioner there?

Topic: Letting the Client Lead

Five Reasons to Let the client lead:

  1. Respect their boundaries and privacy
  2. Build Rapport
  3. Protect them from going too deep too fast
  4. Match the clients learning style (i.e. Don’t give a ton of science if they hate information versus don’t jump into tapping without explanation if they need information)
  5. Let the clients natural voice, language and age appropriate phrasing lead the opposite of Letting the client lead is > Putting words in their moth > telling them diagnoses or reasons why > asking “why would you feel that way” > forcing cognitive shifts > pushing forgiveness or compassion > making a client say I love and accept myself before they feel it is true > pushing affirmations too soon > questioning a client’s feelings, motives or actions
