Etiquette and Instructions for an Effective Training Experience

Etiquette and Instructions for an Effective Training Experience

Thank you for registering for an EFT Universe virtual workshop!

You’re going to have a wonderful experience!

We’ve created these workshops with both love and smarts, to make sure you have the best possible experience. They’re designed to help you feel emotionally connected to the other participants and your instructor, as well as enjoying an immersive learning experience.

We use research-proven tools called “active learning.” Studies at Harvard University show that these methods produce measurably better results than traditional lecture-style learning (Deslauriers, McCarty, Miller, Callaghan & Kestin, 2019).

Checking In
You’ll check in with one of the workshop hosts at the start of the first day. You’ll also meet other participants informally before the class begins, just like you’d be doing at a registration desk at an in-person conference. You will be able to see and hear each other, and you’ll be asked a few simple questions to complete your registration. Please make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the start of class on the first day to ensure you can check in. Please make sure you read and understand the EFT Universe Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. You can also find the Virtual Workshop policy and Research Informed Consent policy on the Terms and Conditions page. These explain the Confidentiality aspects of a virtual workshop (Hint: They’re different from an in-person one!). You’ll test your audio and video during the check in process. You will be asked to agree to the Release of Liability & Confidentiality Agreements if you have not done so prior to the workshop. Be ready to provide both your landline or mobile phone number, and the phone number of someone physically close to your location as an emergency contact, if you did not do this during the registration process.
Virtual Morning Coffee and Lunch Breaks

There will be a meal break in the middle of the workshop. It will be 60-90 minutes. During that time, you will have the option to sit at a “virtual lunch table” with fellow students to have a discussion over your meals. Virtual lunch tables will begin after a 15 – 20 minute break, and continue till near the time the workshop resumes. The last few minutes will be free for you to take a walk or a bio break.

We’ll ask you before the meal break if you’d like to be at a virtual table. If you do, say “Yes” in chat at that time.

You also might have the opportunity to join with your classmates in a “Virtual Coffee Circle” 30 minutes prior to the beginning of class each day. In these guided group discussions, you will be able to meet with your group before the day officially begins to discuss your takeaways and “Aha!” moments from the day before, learn more about your fellow students, and set your intentions for the day.

Watch this video. (Coming soon! How we create emotional intimacy in a virtual environment. Think about a large crowd of loving people. Warm feelings. Energy exercises)

Before the Workshop

Come with the intention to participate full out!

Use this meditation each day to set intentions and get the most out of the workshop.

Plan to be at each session right on time, and bring your full attention to each one.

Some workshops are recorded, others are not. You’ll have been notified about which of these is the case in your welcome email. If the workshop is recorded, you’ll get a copy of the recording a couple of days later.

Attendance at the entire event is required in order to give all your fellow participants a committed experience.

Get a good night’s sleep the night before.

Have water, snacks, and tissues handy.

Prepare your lunch in advance each day. Optionally, you’ll be in a small group Zoom table for lunch. You’ll have 15 minutes to get your food before the group meets. After that, the lunch get-together begins. During lunch, you’ll consider provocative questions with members of your small group.

Read the virtual workshop policies, and the research informed consent policies, on the EFT Universe Terms and Conditions page.

Have a pen and paper ready to take written notes.

Make sure to double check what time the event occurs in your own time zone

Tech Check

Use a computer for the workshop, not a phone or tablet.

Have a backup Internet service, such as a phone hot spot, in case you have Internet problems. Instructions for iPhone here, Android here.

If you have housemates or co-workers who are using bandwidth on the same Internet service, ask them to minimize the use of high-bandwidth activities such as gaming and movies.

Download Zoom. Make sure you’re updated to the most recent Zoom version. Update here.

Use your real first and last name in your Zoom account so that other attendees know who you are. To do this, log into Zoom.us. On the left you’ll see Personal / Profile. Choose “Edit” and type in your name.

Check your mic and your camera to make sure both work well. Test them here.

Position your camera eye level or above with lighting in front of you (not behind you) so the other participants can see your face.

Familiarize yourself with Zoom preferences, such as high-definition camera, virtual backgrounds, and audio sources. Tutorial here.

If you aren’t familiar with Zoom has a feature called “breakout rooms.” This enables you to engage in intimate personal conversations with a small group of other participants. Three minute instructional video here.

Attend the workshop in a private place where you feel comfortable. No one should be able to see or overhear you. Try your best to minimize interruptions so you can get as much as you possibly can from the workshop.

Checklist: 1 Week in Advance
Checklist: 1 Day in Advance
Day 1: Show Up Strong!

Arrive 30 minutes early each day to get your virtual hugs, introduce yourself, meet new people, and make sure your sound and video are working.

Check your mic and your camera before each day’s session begins.

Have your camera on always, so your face and eyes are visible to everyone.

Mute your mic when you aren’t speaking.

After each break, be back at your computer a couple of minutes before the next session begins.

Plan to stay for the full duration of every session. Don’t miss a thing!

Be Present

Silence all your devices and anything that goes “ding” on your computer so you can stay focused and respectful of the speakers.

We have scheduled plenty of time for regular bio breaks and meals, so don’t leave for that reason.

Stay with the program. Don’t engage in side conversations or chats with other individual participants.

Post feedback in chat when it’s appropriate, but not needless or distracting chatter.

Resist side conversations/chats with other participants during presentations.

During breaks, turn off audio and video, but don’t leave the conference, close the Zoom app, or turn off your computer.

Use your breaks wisely and get away from the screen. Fresh air and sunshine are good.

Plan to stay the entire time, and if you do have to leave a session early, simply sign off. Announcing your departure in the chat is not necessary and may disrupt the class.

When you’re in breakout rooms, follow the guidelines for how long each participant has. Use a timer if necessary.

Occasionally your trainer will drop in on your Zoom breakout room, with their audio and video turned off. Maintain 100% focus on the other participants and ignore the trainer.

Be Engaged

Use Chat as prompted by the speaker to stay engaged and participate.

Let the speaker know that you are resonating with their message during Q&A periods. Compliments are welcomed and encouraged.

If you’re feeling emotionally overwhelmed, send a private chat message to a team member. Emotional Assistants have the letters EA before their names, e.g. EA Truly Nice, EA Bea Goode.

Allow time for self-care after the call every day. Go for a walk, reflect, meditate, or do something else that you enjoy.

EFT Professional 2 Day Practice Intensive Agenda


EFT Professional 2 Day Practice Intensive

Best Practices for Virtual Workshops

Record Trainer Observations after each workshop.

This document can be given as a handout.

The focus of this workshop is on practice and allowing participants to demonstrate the skills they’ve acquired since the 4 Day Professional Skills Training. Lectures are kept to a minimum. The primary content will be:

  • Demonstrations by the trainers
  • Exercises done in pairs or larger groups
  • Explanations, questions, and feedback from participants
  • Practicing skills useful in discrete segments of a session (e.g., building rapport, meeting objections, navigating resistance to change) using role-playing and structured exercises
  • The art of delivery and developing professional skill in specified topics
  • Self-evaluating strengths, weaknesses, and techniques needing further work

Trainer tracks time. Trainer spends no more than 1 hour a day on lecture. The other 5 hours are experiential, with role-plays, demos, and feedback.


Play full out!

  • Audio and video. Keep video on all the way through.
  • Use your real first and last name in your Zoom account.
  • Silence all your devices and notifications on your computer.
  • Position your camera eye level or above with lighting in front of you (not behind you), so the other participants can see your face and your eyes are looking into the camera.

Whole Group: Practice this now.

Break Timing — How to Use Breaks

  • If you have to leave for a moment, no need to announce it.
  • Join 30 minutes early each day. We’ll chat and this also serves as an audio and video test.
  • Mute audio and turn camera off during breaks but don’t leave the meeting or close the Zoom app.
  • Attendance at the entire event is required.
  • Prepare your meals and snacks in advance each day.
  • Read Aspects handout during break.
  • Read Tables and Legs during break.


Emotional Assistants (EAs)

Give your partner your entire attention.
Occasionally, your trainer will drop in on your Zoom breakout room with their audio and video turned off. Maintain 100% focus on the other participants and ignore the trainer.

Confidentiality. In virtual environments, anyone can record, so be wise about referring to people in the group. The group sessions are being recorded. However, your breakout room sessions are not recorded. Observe confidentiality there.

Structure of Exercises

Small Groups of 2, 3, 4, or 6: Role-plays, discussion of a technique, and after-practice sessions, a minute of feedback from the client or observer.

  • We asked participants to bring a list of personal issues to the workshop, but our primary focus is playing roles, not personal work.
  • We’ll recreate breakout rooms, so sometimes you’ll be with the same person; at other times, you’ll be with another partner. Pair mentees with mentors whenever possible.


Larger Groups: Individuals share insights and experiences from roles they’ve played.

Each person has alternating opportunities to play the role of client, practitioner, and observer. Observations by experienced Emotional Assistants are particularly valuable.

After demonstrations or descriptions of practice problems, ask the group questions such as:

What techniques did the practitioner use?
Why do you think the practitioner used that particular technique?
What alternative techniques might be used at various points in the session?
Did the session take an unexpected turn?
Was there a point where a client had a disconfirming experience?
What choice points did you face as a coach?
Did you observe physiological shifts?
What cognitive shifts occurred?

Trainer debriefs group on the session they just observed.

When participants borrow benefits, they share their experiences in small groups and occasionally with the entire group.

For the role-plays that aren’t used, the trainer can ask participants to describe how they’d approach that situation.

Demonstrations: Demonstration clients are identified by the trainer. Trainer leads them through one or more demos. Emotional Assistants or co-trainers are best practice clients, since they are more likely to stick to role-plays and less likely to get triggered and need a long personal session.

In-Person Circles Variant 1: Trainer has the two people to her left start the role-play and assume the roles of client and coach. At a natural break, 2 to 5 minutes in, she pauses the session and gets and provides quick feedback. Then she has the client turn to his left and become coach for the next person in the circle, picking up the session where they left off.

In-Person Circle Variant 2: As above, but trainer leaves the same person in the role of client and asks another participant to take over as coach. Each person in the circle has the role of coach for a couple of minutes.

Day 1

Review: Why We Tap

Why do we practice EFT? To counter our old conditioning. To release our old story. To let go of whatever holds us back from our full potential. To sneak up and dissolve dysfunctional core beliefs.

We can sneak up on all the beliefs that hold our old story in place. Astrology, genetics, heredity, habits, all the old limitations. Learning from the neocortex to the basal ganglia.

Review: Identifying Issues

Small Groups: Each person has been asked to bring a list of 5 personal events to work on during this workshop. If new ones occur to you during the workshop, add them to the list. We will work on one or more on the second day.

Trainer Role-Plays with Emotional Assistants (EAs)

Trainer Role-Play 1: Establishing Rapport

Role-play first 5 minutes of a session:
An 18-year-old high school dropout, now a waitress, coming in with complaints of free-floating anxiety with no identified cause.

Trainer Role-Play 2: Meeting Objections to Energy Therapy

Brief role-play meeting the objections of a 45-year-old mechanical engineer, coming in with complaints of depression—a left-brain man who is skeptical about energy therapies.

Trainer Role-Play 3: Resistance to Change

Brief role-play of working with a 78-year-old Vietnam War veteran with ongoing PTSD.

Review: Aspects

Handout: Aspects pages in the manual. Review during the break. This takes less than 5 minutes, so add 5 minutes to the break.

Small Groups: Explain to your partners what aspects are and how you find them. Each person in the group gets a turn. Give an example of a visual aspect, a verbal aspect, and a taste aspect. From any story you like—one you make up, one of yours, a client’s.

Review: Crafting Powerful Setups and Reminders

Structure of the Setup Statement.

Trainer demo with an EA. EA tells a story; the trainer creates Setups and Reminders.

Feedback in Chat. What were some of the Setups and Reminder Phrases and why do you think the trainer chose those?

Review: Sneaking Up and Sneaking Away

Describe the two techniques. Have participants use these two techniques throughout the workshop in case a practice client gets triggered. No need to demo, because this is one of our first demos below.

Review: Tables, Legs, and Aspects

Review on Day 1. Okay to demo on EA on Day 1 (see below), but hold off having participants do exercise till Day 2 because it’s too triggering for Day 1.

Handout: The 5 pages from the manual as a PDF. Read during meal break.

No need for a demo because it’s one of the first demos below.

Use the Tables Legs worksheet from EFT Universe site or from Certification program.

Participant Role-Plays

Role-Play 4: Sneaking Away

Client 1: Five minutes before the session ends, a 24-year-old medic has an abreaction.

Client 2: A client has finally been getting in touch with long-repressed fears, and at the end of the session, her SUD score is 10 out of 10.

Pairs: Practice Sneaking Away.

Role-Play 5: What Makes Clients Feel Heard?

Role-play with an EA. Can be combined with Role-Play 1 above. Or use a client example below.

Client 1: A client who speaks rapidly, dominates the conversation, and hops from one topic to the other. You try to slow her down, unsuccessfully at first, then match her pace, then she begins to relax.

Client 2: A shy teenager who rarely speaks up and you are unsure whether or not she has been traumatized in the past.

Role-Play 6: Aspects

Whole Group after Break: Trainer or EA tells a story of an annoying event, while participants tag aspects in chat.

Role-Play 7: Identifying Psychological Reversal

Role-play with EA.

Post in chat: What are some of the signs of psychological reversal?

Client 1: A 12-year-old boy diagnosed with ADHD who squirms, walks around your office, and does not respond to what you say.

Client 2: A 75-year-old male veteran for whom all previous PTSD treatments have failed.

Client 3: A successful entrepreneur, feeling blocked in approaching investors to raise capital to grow her business, says she has no childhood memories. You have to decide. Do you work on: The capital? The body sensations associated with approaching investors? Symbols in body? An event? An earlier memory? A made-up memory? Share the rationale for your choice with your group.

Feedback. You can interrupt the role-play several times in order to ask participants what techniques they might do at that juncture. Then put people into breakout rooms of 4. Have them share 1 of these methods and why they might choose it.

Role-Play 8: Additional Reversal Corrections

Whole Group: Practice Cross Crawl, Cook’s Hookup, Sore Spot.

Role-Play 9: Indications for Using the 9 Gamut

Pairs: Practice big circles. Use the Clock Technique if necessary.

Reminder of Indications (from page 321 of EFT Manual 4th Edition):

  • Disturbing emotions that can’t be linked to a specific event.
  • Traumatic incidents that occurred very early in a person’s life, before memory formation began (age 5 and earlier).
  • When there are a great many similar traumatic events, such as frequent childhood beatings, many battlefield memories.
  • Womb trauma. Stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline cross the placental barrier; a child may be “learning” stress at the level of molecular conditioning even before birth.
  • Core beliefs (such as “I’m not lovable” or “The world is not a safe place”) that cannot easily be linked to specific events.
  • Persistent behaviors for which a basis in actual events cannot be found, such as procrastination, lateness, irrational fear and irritation, disproportionate anger, and similar patterns.
  • When the available time frame for a session is limited.
  • Clients whose SUD level is not going down using EFT’s shortcut Basic Recipe.


Role-Play 10: Identifying Tables and Legs

With an EA client, the trainer does the “5 Legs in 5 Minutes” exercise from the 4 Day Professional Skills Training, while participants fill in the Tables and Legs diagram. See above for description and links.

Do this exercise with an EA rather than a participant to reduce triggering. Let participants know we will pick a manageable leg from our own lives to work on with a partner tomorrow.

Whole Group: Sneak away if some participants are triggered by exercise. Also see next role-play.

Role-Play 11: Group Sneaking Away

Trainer taps with the whole group on general statements to bring down SUD scores after the Tables and Legs exercise, because focusing on 5 legs will have triggered many participants. With a group of under 10, you can ask participants to each say a Sneaking Away phrase, one by one.

Larger Groups: You’re leading a group. You want to sneak away from everyone’s triggering. Lead your group in tapping and saying a few words useful in reassuring other group members. Each person says one reassuring Sneaking Away statement.

Role-Play 12: Sneaking Up

Client 1: A 28-year-old female athlete receiving sports coaching who becomes flooded and unable to speak or tap.

Client 2: A young male university professor with whom you’re doing career coaching unexpectedly and suddenly has flashbacks of multiple incidents of childhood abuse.

Client 3: You’re working with a 28-year-old mother of 2 whose husband recently committed suicide and who is wracked with guilt about not saving him.

Client 4: Though a session has been successful, a veteran’s SUD levels are still high at the end of the session.

Client 5: A musician, 32, says he has no childhood memories before the age of 12.

Pairs: Practice with partner. After, partner gives 1-minute feedback—what worked best, what didn’t work.

Role-Play 13: When PTSD Emerges

Role-play with an EA.

Client 1: A 25-year-old actress with performance anxiety. In the middle of the session, she has a flashback and it becomes apparent that she likely has PTSD. What might you do? Ask each of the mentors to share.

Client 1: An autistic 7-year-old boy who is silent and unresponsive to what you say and does not tap along with you.

Role-Play 14: Alternate Points

Explain when you use Alternate Points.

Whole Group: Follow along with alternate points.

Day 2

For Chat Before Workshop

Aha moments from Day 1.

Ask participants for their SUD levels on issues they wrote in their journals the day before. Notice any that have gone up or down and discuss why.

Day 2 Announcements

Reminders. Water. Breaks. Time.

Start the day by asking participants for their SUD levels on issues they tapped on the day before. Notice any that have gone up or down and discuss why.

Role-plays but also working on one of our table legs. A full session with another participant.

Session Notes Form

Optional virtual meal tables today.

At the end of the day, we’ll review where we are in our practice—where we’re strong, where we need to boost our skills.

We’ll also consider: Which of the 48 Clinical EFT Techniques do you need more practice in?

Role-Play 15: Practicing Chasing the Pain & the Color of Pain

Client 1: An obese retired female teacher with chronic sciatic pain and insomnia.

Client 2: A cancer patient whose doctor says his widespread but intermittent pain is “of unknown etiology.”

Client 3: An 18-year-old athlete whose championship career is threatened by her multiple injuries accompanied by pain.

Pairs: Each person identifies an actual pain they have. Get SUD. Tap continuously. Use 9 Gamut at least once. Practice Sneaking Away at the end. Get SUD again. 10-minute session for 1 person only. After, client gives 1-minute feedback—what worked best, what didn’t work.

Role-Play 16: When SUDs Remain High

Demo with someone whose SUD stayed high after the previous exercises. The rest of the group continues with Borrowing Benefits by checking in on their SUD for the same issue before the demo.

Role-Play 17: The Issue of Self-Love

Client 1: You’re working with a famous actress. You identify a childhood event in which her sister hit her with a tennis racket. You craft a Setup Statement, but when you ask her to say “I accept myself,” she bursts into tears. She doesn’t accept herself.

Post in chat: What other phrases can you use?

Role-Play 18: Goal Setting

Client 1: A video conferencing session with a young ambitious manager who has had a successful series of 3 sessions with you as she seeks new career directions.

Client 2: In hospice with an elderly chemotherapy patient who is bewildered, inarticulate, and frightened of death. End of session, you’re goal setting with him.

Small Groups: What are appropriate goals? Each person presents one, groups of 4, 2 minutes each.

Whole Group: What was the most unusual goal anyone came up with in your group?

Role-Play 19: Techniques for Handling Flooding

Client 1: A new client, a 48-year-old banker, who during her first tapping session breaks down and is unable to either speak or tap.

Client 2: A 55-year-old male engineer who unexpectedly bursts into tears during a session you’re doing in front of a group.

Pairs: One person plays coach, the other plays the silent flooded client. After, client gives 1-minute feedback—what worked best, what didn’t work.

Role-Play 20: Making Up Events

During role-play: Use 9 Gamut, Sneak Away, Feedback on what really worked.

Client 1: A policewoman says she had a “pretty good” white-picket-fence childhood but has no specific memories before the age of 12. Ask her where she was born, where she went to elementary school, a bad thing that might have happened there.

Client 2: An actress says she had a nightmare childhood and has always blocked it from memory. She can feel a sense of distress in her body, but try as you might, you can’t turn the interoceptive feeling into an event. So you have her make up events.

Pairs: The other person now plays client. Feedback from client after session.

Post instructions in chat:

Coach: Start by finding the title of an Adult Event. Then ask about a similar childhood event.

Client: Say you remember no childhood events

Coach: Ask client to make up an event.

Client: Make one up, must be fictitious.

Role-Play 21: Exploring Low SUD Scores

Client 1: You know from a client’s history that she was abused as a child and is currently in an abusive relationship, but she optimistically reports SUD levels of 4 at the maximum for all events past and present.

Client 2: A session is going well with the client’s SUD scores going to a 2 by the middle of the session, but then they stall and remain at a 1 or 2 till the end of the session.

Whole Group: Practice Floor to Ceiling Eye Roll.

Role-Play 22: Eliminating Maladaptive Beliefs and Installing New Cognitions

Client 1: Phone session with a 37-year-old fibromyalgia patient trapped in hopelessness and despair over her condition and physical limitations.

Client 2: A successful 44-year-old writer working on his third book. He has developed writer’s block and has a looming deadline for completing the manuscript for which he has received a large advance.

Small Groups: There are many possible ways of working with the writer. What are some of the options? Make a list in your breakout room with your partner. The deadline? The body sensations associated with writer’s block? An event? An earlier memory? His fears? Psychological reversal? What changed between the previous book and this one? Imagine holding the completed manuscript? Secondary Gain? What was happening when you got blocked? Which direction would you go first? Share the rationale for your choice with your group.

Role-Play 23: Practicing Tearless Trauma

Client 1: A 45-year-old head of psychiatry for a major hospital who has had lots of psychotherapy but has a terrifying childhood incident she has never disclosed.

Client 2: A twenty-something Native Hawaiian man who is triggered by, and has many examples of, multigenerational racial discrimination.

Role-Play 24: Identifying Hidden Aspects

Client 1: A female professional client, 35, with a single incident trauma for which SUD is not dropping, despite tapping on every known element of the event.

Client 2: A 68-year-old Vietnam veteran who has begun having recurring nightmares.

Client 3: A 36-year-old female EFT practitioner who has made no progress on a key childhood event.

Client 4: Work with one of your own recent adult events (leg) with a low SUD score. Find obscure aspects.

Whole Group: Trainer or an EA describes one of their personal recent events. Participants drop possible aspects in chat.

Role-Play 25: Dissociation and Disparities between SUD and Event

Engagement: What are some signs that a client might be dissociating?

Going positive. No body sensations. Disparity in SUD. The thousand-yard stare.

Post others in chat. Flat voice. Rationalization. Super-reasonableness. Not remembering. No facial expression. Jargon. Euphemisms like “passed away” for death. Anger as a way of defending. Changing the subject. Minimalizing. Getting lots of therapy.

Client 1: A 44-year-old woman who shows no emotion and tells you her previous therapist told her she dissociates from her feelings.

Client 2: A 39-year-old artist whose father beat him many times. There is a huge disparity between the severity of the events and the SUD scores he reports. He says it was “not too bad” and gives you a SUD score of 3. What could I do? Slow down. Pick the worst. Or the first. Explore all aspects. Have him tune into his body.

Client 3: A 33-year-old healer who has come for help getting over a terrible divorce. She has a hard time keeping her feelings under control. You sense she could burst into tears at any moment. Yet the highest SUD she reports is 3.

Client 1: A 40-year-old client who declares that no previous therapy has helped him and he has low expectations from EFT.

Client 2: A very cooperative 37-year-old client who has been coming to you for more than 10 sessions. She goes along with your every suggestion and her SUD levels drop quickly. But they’re back up to 10 the following session.

Practice of Energy Psychology and EFT

The Practice of Energy Psychology and EFT

Are there parts of your life you struggle with, despite your best efforts?

Have you tried a variety of approaches and techniques, with limited success? Are there places where you’re just simply stuck? Are you stressed and anxious about those things that aren’t going well? Are there events and people from your past that haunt you? Are you in pain?

You don’t have to stay that way!

Science now has a proven solution to these problems.

Just think about how your life would look if those problems disappeared. If all the energy and time they suck out of your mind and body was freed up.

Imagine living without fear or regret. Imagine being at peace with your past. Imagine waking up in the morning with your mind flooded with peace, joy, optimism and hope.

Wouldn’t your life be great?

Start Tapping Away Your Problems Today

scientifically backed Results

The best thing of all is that EFT is a self-help method.

Imagine having an “eraser” that could simply erase all the fear, guilt and shame surrounding events from your past.

Imagine using that magic eraser to release every limiting belief about your life, your body, your health, and your future.

What would happen if your pain went away? If your money problems disappeared? If the obstacles that keep you from true love were wiped away? If negative emotions just evaporated? If weight and health challenges were suddenly solved? If work and career unfolded effortlessly? Imagine living without fear or regret.

You don’t need to go to a doctor or psychologist, or spend thousands of dollars on fancy credentials to use EFT tapping. You can learn it yourself and unlock its stress-reducing potential the first time you try it on your own body.

The Course Includes 12 training lessons
  1. Intro to the EFT Manual
  2. Inspiring Stories & Compelling Evidence
  3. The Science Behind EFT
  4. How to Do EFT: The Basic Recipe
  5. How to Use EFT for the Five Major Areas of Life

    • Spirituality

  7. The Gentle Techniques
  8. Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself
  9. Special Populations
  10. Professional Practice Techniques

Each of the 12 training lessons contains video and audio instructional programs by Dr. Dawson Church, along with written material from The EFT Manual, to show you how to get the most out of EFT.

In this EFT tapping course, you’ll discover how most physical problems, from pain to autoimmune diseases, have their roots in emotional problems. You’ll learn how to erase those negative emotions using EFT’s fundamental method, called the “Basic Recipe.”

Learn EFT tapping!

You'll Learn the Whole Suite of Clinical EFT Techniques, Including:

Hear from Real People

You’ll also read the personal stories of dozens of people who’ve broken through their blocks after trying EFT. It’s not just Dr. Church and a collection of distinguished scientists telling you what EFT can do; it’s ordinary people with the standard collection of problems telling how their lives were transformed by tapping.

The stories are real, up-close and personal; some will make you laugh while others will make you cry. But they’ll all inspire you with the belief that it’s possible for you to heal.

Once you learn the keys of EFT taught in this course, you’ll be surprised at how many problems that hold you back can be quickly and easily relieved, opening up new possibilities for your life.

Ultimate EFT Certification Program

Help Others Heal Their Emotional Traumas in Just Minutes AND Jumpstart a Career You'll LOVE

Play Video

Picture this…

A client comes to you with severe emotional trauma, including years of abuse by their own family.

They feel lost. Broken. Alone.

You gently guide them through a series of simple tapping exercises, allowing them to release layers of emotional pain.

In just minutes, they feel lighter and happier… better than they can ever remember.

The trauma that burdened them for years? It has simply melted away.

This is a true story of a woman that I worked with in a group EFT Tapping session.

You can also have this kind of impact as a certified Clinical EFT practitioner.

The Ultimate EFT Certification will give you in-depth training under the guidance of certified mentors so you can quickly become a clinical EFT practitioner if you want to start a new career.

If you are already a health or energy practitioner, the Ultimate EFT Certification can be an effective, new tool that you add to your existing practice.

I’ve become certified in many other modalities, such as The Sedona Method, EMDR, and Gestalt, and I can truthfully say that the EFT Universe workshop represented the best in terms of its content, structure, and presentation.

Start a New Career You Love or Enhance Your Existing Practice with this Highly Sought After Program

Learning how to become a certified EFT practitioner is life-changing for you and your future clients.

Through the Ultimate EFT Certification, you’ll be guided with the help of a mentor to work with practice clients. You’ll experience the joy of seeing people transform their fear, sadness, and anger into happiness, love, and peace – right before your eyes.

For me personally, learning EFT in 2002 and becoming certified in 2008 changed the trajectory of my life. Personal challenges I had my whole life melted away. My capacity to support people suffering from emotional trauma grew exponentially.

That’s why I founded EFT Universe and created the Ultimate EFT Certification program – because I wanted as many people as possible to have access to this life-changing energy healing technique.

I’ve seen tens of thousands of people reap these same benefits.


Transform Your Past Emotional Issues and Heal Yourself

One of the major benefits of going through the Ultimate EFT Certification is that you get to work on your own emotional issues.

Because the training process often brings up unhealed parts of a practitioner’s past, we include personal transformational work within your curriculum. You identify and address these over the course of 15 hours of personal work.

As you do, you’ll love how your confidence and personal power grow. You might experience more joy, peace and love more of the time. Life just feels better.

You may be surprised at how it enhances your relationships at home, at work, and in your social circles.

After learning how to become a certified EFT practitioner, you’ll want to share tapping with more people so they can benefit, too.

Because this simple, powerful energy modality can quickly erase the effects of traumas and transform lives.

Enrollment for our next cohort opens on April 15, 2024. 

Are you ready to make this happen?

You Can Be Certified and Start Your Practice in ONLY 12 Months

We designed the Ultimate EFT Certification Program to be comprehensive and flexible, so that you will get complete training from anywhere in the world and do it on your schedule.

You will get a deep understanding of all 48 Clinical EFT techniques and have ample opportunities to practice in live sessions.

By the time you’re ready to graduate from EFT Universe, you will be well prepared to take on clients in a new practice or add this modality to your existing practice.

You can be part of the change that transforms people into healthier and happier beings.

The Ultimate EFT Certification Program takes about 12 months to complete. You complete the first four modules online, take the 4-day Professional Skills Training, and submit your first batch of cases to your mentor (Mentoring #1).

The focus from that point on is practice. You work with clients under the guidance of your mentor, completing the next three batches (Mentoring #2, 3, and 4). You take the Practice Intensive and the Energy, Trauma, and Healing online course, wrap up the remaining requirements, and graduate. 

Your training includes:

Wonderful course, so much learning, practical experience, supportive community, skills, and confidence development.

What was most valuable to me about this program is the mentoring process. While I love all the study materials, it’s really priceless to have a certified practitioner – a mentor, a trainer – give you extensive feedback on your work over the course of many months with one-on-one meetings and skills practice calls. All of those life trainings have incredible value.”

Why It's Important to Become a Certified EFT Practitioner

10 Reasons Students Choose to Study with EFT Universe


Credibility: You can feel confident that the techniques you learn and teach clients are Empirically Validated Treatments. We train in Clinical EFT™, the “evidence-based” form. It’s based on research that meets standards published by the American Psychological Association’s (APA) clinical psychology division.


1-to-1 Mentorship: Your mentor works with you throughout your educational journey. They connect with you monthly in a group or one-to-one setting to discuss concepts and brainstorm challenging client issues. After attending an immersive classroom experience, you will begin practicing techniques with other students and/or practice clients.


Monthly Calls: Our interactive calls are just like a real classroom – you can “raise your hand,” ask questions, share insights, and practice the techniques live with other students… from anywhere in the world! You’ll have a monthly Q&A call based on student-selected topics. And our EFT Universe mentors lead a Skills Practice call based on the techniques you are learning in your online lessons. The mentor will model the technique with a volunteer student, pause for instruction, and brainstorm ways to take the technique to the next level!


Self-Paced Year-Long Structure: You can learn on your own schedule – and start as soon as you make your first payment. While we recommend students finish the first phase of education in 9-12 months, students can apply for an additional 6-month extension for free. Students who need two years to finish the certification can apply for a $500 extension.


Multiple Learning Styles: Everyone absorbs information differently. That’s why EFT Universe incorporates digital textbooks, audio versions of each chapter, video summaries, and written transcripts of our audio files. You can quickly reference important techniques with our downloadable PDFs. Immerse yourself in video recordings of full-length sessions or join our monthly Skills Practice calls where you can ask questions live.


Global, Diverse Student Body: Our students are from the US, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. Our staff and mentors host digital live calls and live workshops across the globe. Some of our students are full-time health care practitioners, others are transitioning from a corporate career, or working part-time to build their business. Our students’ diverse backgrounds continue to enrich our course offerings!


Supportive Community: With multiple opportunities to connect, our students have met professional accountability partners, formed valuable friendships, and even started businesses together. Our supportive Facebook community and interactive monthly live calls allow students to connect consistently and authentically.


Accreditation and CE/CMEs: EFT Universe’s certifications are a popular choice for psychologists, nurses, doctors, and other health care practitioners seeking Continuing Education/Continuing Medical Education (CE/CME) credits. If you are from North America and seeking CE/CMEs through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), and the Association of Social Work Boards (and others), you may be eligible when you learn how to become a certified EFT practitioner. You acquire CEs at the immersive workshop experience, so be sure to select a workshop that qualifies you for the CEs.


In-Person and Digital Learning: While you complete the majority of your certification from home, you will get to attend one of our 4-5 day immersive experiences: The Professional EFT Training. This 4-day live training is an opportunity to meet other students, learn all 48 Clinical EFT techniques, practice under the supervision of one of our faculty members, and begin accumulating your required practice hours. You can attend in person in North America, Europe, and Australia or choose one of the many virtual options of EFT Universe if you prefer not to travel.

“It’s been eye opening! This has been one more step, a higher step on my journey as a person and as a professional. I’m a nurse practitioner and I also teach. It’s given me a lot of insights and a desire to not only take this technique and use it with friends, family, and clients, but also with my students. Dawson has brought this technique into everything, especially the clinical setting where I work. I’m excited to make tapping more available to everybody because I think it’s wonderful.

What Are the Steps to Take?

Follow the Path to the Ultimate EFT Certification

The Ultimate EFT Certification Program is divided into several clear and sequential steps. You begin with four online courses. You then take a virtual 4-day Professional Skills Training. We offer these in many locations virtually in the US, Europe, and Australia all year round.

We then connect you with an expert mentor, and as you work with practice clients, you get invaluable personal guidance in developing your EFT skills. After completing 40 case histories and a virtual workshop, the Practice Intensive, you graduate. The process takes about 12 months. For more information on each step, see below.

Module 1


The Genetics of Personal Transformation

New scientific breakthroughs in fields like neuroscience and epigenetics show that we can change our gene expression to boost our levels of happiness, vitality, and health. The Genetics of Personal Transformation contains 12 lessons in the science behind energy healing. Each hour-long lesson trains you in a practical energy technique that can boost your levels of health, energy, and happiness.

Module 2


The Practice of Energy Psychology and EFT

This course contains 12 lessons to train you in the 48 techniques of Clinical EFT, the evidence-based form of tapping. You’ll discover how most physical problems, from pain to autoimmune diseases, have their roots in emotional trauma. You’ll learn how to erase those negative emotions using EFT’s fundamental methods, from the “Basic Recipe” to the “Movie Technique.” You’ll discover three “Gentle Techniques” for working with psychological trauma, as well as 12 “Professional Practice Techniques.”

Module 3


Professional Ethics

A complete understanding of ethics is one of the most important pieces of knowledge a practitioner of the healing arts can possibly have. Ethical principles are not restrictive rules and regulations – they are maps for bringing out your best as a caregiver and healer. This course trains you in setting healthy boundaries, self-care, appropriate relationships with clients, a clear “scope of practice,” and effective communication with other professionals in the healthcare field.

Module 4


The Psychology of Coaching

Using the psychology of transformation, you’ll gain an understanding of human motivation and behavior and how energy therapy and neuroscience work together in an easily accessible form to help your clients transcend their old set points. This 13-lesson course teaches core coaching concepts to turn issues into goals, so clients reach peak states and thrive.

Module 5


The Art of Delivery

What does masterful EFT look like? This course is designed to take you beyond the mechanics of EFT and into fluid and natural practice. Before or during this module, you will also attend a live class. It’s the brilliantly designed and time-tested EFT 4-Day Professional Skills Training. The curriculum is designed to give you practice in the 48 techniques of Clinical EFT. You’ll receive both structured training and practical demonstrations while practicing your skills with other members of the class.

Module 6


Energy, Trauma, and Healing

This module starts with a 2-day live class, the Practice Intensive, that can be taken in person or virtually. With other practitioners, you role-play to develop your skills in each phase of the healing encounter, from the start of the first session to multi-year client relationships. The online course, Energy, Trauma, and Healing, trains you in the latest research on psychological trauma and healing. You begin by reviewing the characteristics of PTSD, showing specifically how it’s a physiological condition that produces extensive genetic, hormonal, and neurological changes in the human body. Yet with energy techniques, even adverse experiences recorded deep in the brain can be healed. You learn the three steps that overwrite old trauma in a process called “memory reconsolidation and extinction.”

Mentoring & Practicum Courses

You’ll write up four sets of 10 case histories and receive feedback from your mentor. Your skills will progress steadily, as your practice is developed through your mentor’s personalized feedback.

Personal Work: You’ll also work on your personal issues. The training process often brings up unhealed parts of a practitioner’s past. You identify and address these over the course of 15 hours of personal work.

Monthly Live Q&A Calls: Join Dawson Church and other EFT mentors for a live Q&A session on student-selected topics.

“When I got my certification, I felt comfortable right off bringing EFT into my yoga and energy business because I had already done so many practices with people as part of the certification process. I had gotten feedback, I had a mentor, I really felt solid in my EFT Knowledge. I felt I was able to offer EFT to others usefully, mindfully, and successfully pretty much right away after certification. If you’re considering certification in this course, I would say that no matter what you intend to do with this skill at the end of it — whether it’s to help yourself, your family, or use it like I do out in the world, you’re going to be poised and ready to do it.”
