Hi Dawson & group-
I've been an EFT practitioner for over 9 years. I have taken Level 1 & 2. I use EFT daily in my private practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I specialize in trauma treatment, anxiety, addictions and couples issues.
I have been volunteering as a Give-An-Hour therapist since 2011, seeing veterans or their spouses, as requested. I have worked on Wounded Warriors Project Odyssey retreats, helping warriors with PTSD and TBI. On every retreat I have been on (9 so far), I have taught EFT to the participants. It has helped them reduce pain, handle triggers and reduce symptoms of PTSD. On a more recent WWP retreat in Crystal River Florida, I had one warrior who started to have a panic attack once she was in the water, with her snorkel gear on--- so I helped her back into the boat and we began tapping on the fears. As I led the tapping, she was able to say "it reminds me of Iraq" (referencing her face mask). We tapped for only 5 minutes, and her fears vanished. She was totally surprised at how fast and effective the EFT tapping was. She was also very grateful.
I have used EFT with every veteran I see in my office. They have also been astounded at how quickly it helps their PTSD symptoms abate. They love that they can use it on their own and have reported sleeping better, less anger, calmer minds.
I worked at the Boston VAMC from 1996-2002, and wish I had known about EFT while working there, What I saw there is that Prolonged Exposure Therapy and CBT were the primary modes of treatment for PTSD. I believe EFT Tapping combines a gentle exposure therapy while helping the amygdala begin to calm and have awareness of the present moment, thereby helping the brain let go of the past. I see it again and again be incredibly helpful to my clients. I hope the VA approves this wonderful treatment technique.
