Q: Can anyone take the training or is it only for licensed therapists, and is there an application process?
A: Anyone can enroll whether they are licensed or not. However, there is an application process and though we decline only a small percentage of applicants, this process is in place to ensure that those entering the course have the abilities required of a practitioner. Certification is our public affirmation that we believe that this practitioner has learned the skills. Those consistent standards are also why our organization is trusted by so many others in the healing field, and other prominent web sites link to our certified practitioner listings.
Q: I see you have live webinars as part of the course. I’m in Europe, 8 hours ahead of you. Are any of these scheduled at a time I can join them?
A: Yes, the webinars alternate between noon PST and 5 pm PST which means that people in all time zones are usually able to attend either one or the other live.
Q: Are any of the trainings outside of the US for participants in other geographic areas?
A: Yes we offer the training in Europe, Australia and Asia.
Q: Many of my clients are dealing with birth trauma and early childhood trauma (and so am I). Nothing seems to help. Not cogitive therapy, not EFT, not other Energy Psychology methods I have tried. Will the course cover this huge problem?
A: Yes, we teach several specialized Energy Psychology techniques for reaching this level. There's an exciting new field of psychology called Memory Reconsolidation and Extinction, and the course translates its experimental findings to practical EP treatments.
Q: I've had some success using Energy Psychology with my own children, but feel I could offer them more. And I'm a teacher and need it every day in the classroom. Does the course cover this?
A: Yes. It's wonderful to give children these tools to use as they're growing up because then they don't acquire the overlay of trauma that many of us had to shed, in order shine to our full potential! There is a whole Unit in Module 2 on Working With Children. There are 2 Units on Advanced Energy Techniques in Module 6 and these apply appropriate Energy Psychology methods to the various developmental stages of childhood.
Q: I work in a psychiatric facility and I'm close to burnout. Can you apply these methods in this type of setting, and can they help me on a personal level
A: Yes. Module 6 has a unit on self — care and burnout prevention, as well as energy exercises you can use between patients to clear your field and de — stress yourself.
Q: I straddle the worlds of allopathic and alternative care. How accepted is this by medical professionals?
A: Many medical professionals are receptive to these methods. Many doctors and nurses have gone through our training, certain modules of which are accredited for CME for doctors (American Medical Association), nurses (American Nurses Credentialing Commission) and psychologists (American Psychological Association).
Q. I am not certified in EFT and am starting this course from the beginning. It says that I must take Live EFT Universe Clinical EFT Level 1 & Level 2 workshops. I live where it is easier for me to take live workshops with a different organization.
A. You do not have to have any prior EFT knowledge to start the Energy Psychology Certification program. As part of the program we offer a solid foundation in Clinical EFT. Therefore, it’s necessary to take Clinical EFT workshops with Certified EFT Universe Trainers who present the scientifically proven EFT curriculum.
Q: I am so happy that most of this program is offered online. It would be much easier for me to take the Workshops online also either by watching the workshop videos or by Skype. Would this complete that requirement?
A: No. We believe that there is transformational power and value in attending a live in person workshop. Each two — day workshop is comprised of 8 learning modules and steadily build your EFT skills and systematically train you in Clinical EFT.Here is the link to our upcoming Level 1 and Level 2 workshops.
Q: I have listened to all of Nick Ortner’s free programs for the last 6 years. I even purchase one in which Dawson was presenting. Can I get credit for doing this extra work since I would be coming into this program with some previous knowledge and self practice?
A: We have a great admiration for the work that Nick and Jessica Ortner have done over the years with the Tapping World Summits. This Summit had done a great deal to get the word out about EFT to so many people all over the world. We do believe that the true educational experience for learning EFT is by attending a live workshop and practice the skills under expert supervision. Therefore, only those who have completed Intermediate certification through one of these organizations, (EFT Universe, EMO Free, AAMET, & ACEP) will receive credit for EFT workshop components of this program.
