2020 Pre-Symposium + Symposium - Self-Care: EFT as an Approach for Weight-Loss, Anxiety, Depression, Pain & Wealth Creation Peta Stapleton PhD



Stress is typically defined as an actual or perceived threat to homeostasis and is considered a risk factor for a wide range of psychological disorders, and health professionals are at unique risk of burnout and prolonged stress. Numerous studies have demonstrated strong associations between cortisol (stress hormone) levels and psychological health and the need for effective interventions is paramount.  Body based approaches to managing stress has
been increasing in research publications, and one focus is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). Clinical EFT represents a manualised evidence-based practice that draws on aspects of traditional psychological interventions
(i.e., cognitive therapy and brief exposure therapy) and somatic stimulation. Specifically, EFT involves the application of fingertip pressure on acupoints on the face and upper body with a concurrent cognitive reframing of target
issues. Research has assessed the efficacy of EFT treatment for a range of psychological and physiological conditions including fibromyalgia, psychological trauma, and food cravings. Studies suggests that EFT targets
specific areas of the brain involved in hyperarousal, such as the amygdala and hippocampus. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies indicate that EFT provides similar effects to acupuncture in the
down-regulation of the amygdala and anterior cingulate areas of the brain, which are activated by exposure to stress and trauma, and because it is self applied, it makes it convenient for health professionals to use.

Learning objectives:

At the conclusion of these talks/ workshop, attendees will be better able to:

- Demonstrate EFTs core technique, the “basic recipe”, know the basic
Clinical EFT points and sequence.
- Have an understanding of what EFT is, the research behind the technique and
what it is used for.
- Describe how to test the results of EFT.
- Distinguish between a general issue and a specific event.
- Define EFTs “generalization effect” which allows the practitioner to
neutralize many traumatic events simultaneously.
- Be practised in using EFT for their own self care and stress/burnout.


- introduce attendees to the science behind EFT and outline the published
research relating to stress, burnout, physiological outcomes, and a range of
health conditions (90min)
- teach the complete EFT protocol  and apply to common stress
and burnout issues (3 hours)
- highlight the Australian research relating to food cravings and emotional
eating with live demonstration and allow ample opportunity for (90 min)
