EFT as stress reducing method is gaining momentum now

Kaiser Permanente recommends EFT for PTSD

 

Kaiser Permanente, one of the largest health insurance providers and hospital systems in the USA, came out this summer with recommendations for using Emotional Freedom Techniques on PTSD.

The Kaiser Permanente Journal suggests that 5 sessions be used for those at risk for PTSD and 10 sessions for those that have full blown PTSD.

This is another sign that the mainstream mental health community is taking EFT seriously!

U.S. Veterans Administration Approves EFT for Treatment

“Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has been approved as a “generally safe” therapy by the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA). After reviewing the extensive evidence for the safety and efficacy of EFT, a group of experts in the VA’s Integrative Health Coordinating Center published a statement approving EFT and several other complementary and integrative health (CIH) practices.
The approval means that VA therapists will be able to use EFT with their clients suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, pain and other conditions…”

Swedish authority granted 500 KSEK for bringing in EFT application to Sweden

Yes! Vinnova, the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems, VINNOVA, said yes to the application I made together with Strikersoft, EFT association and Kaimuk, which makes me super happy!

The name of the Vinnova project is: NYTT DIGITALISERAT STÖD FÖR EGENVÅRD MED FOKUS PÅ TRAUMA OCH STRESS (New digitised aided self-help with trauma & stress focus. “Digitized” in this context means “app and online solution”)

Vinnova support a pilot study in 2017.  We bring together some parties who want to produce a digitalized self-help solution in Sweden for traumatized / stressed new arrivals and related care and caregivers. To make their decision on further cooperation easier a prototype on Swedish will be made, based on my GO EFT Tapping app and the TTT method as displayd on www.selfhelpfortrauma.org.

To make a long story short, now I work as project manager (together with the EFT federation, Strikersoft and Kaimuk) to bring together appropriate stakeholders who have access to the target group and interest in producing a digitalized self-help solution for global use and also conducting research on the method. If this goes well, Vinnova is happy to fund Phase 2 as well.

This is a major breakthrough in government support for tapping methods in Sweden, as I see it.

The EFT also attached information about this in our referral to the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen),  proposed update of the National Guidelines for Care in Depression and Anxiety.

Hopefully, this provides new positive vibrations for the use of the tapping, in favor of all suffering and stressed.

 

I apologize: It is not out of print ….

To all concerned book interested: Adlibris.se has a fault on their website, stating that my book:
Lugn i stormen: EFT: Första hjälpen för den sjuka jobbstressen
is out of print. Only the E-book is shown there right now:
https://www.adlibris.com/se/sok?q=%22sara+bern%22

The first print I made was sold out within 2 weeks after release. But now I have placed the book with BoD as a print on demand house, so it should never go out of print…

The fault is reported to Adlibris and I have asked them for the names of those who tried in vain so I can apologize. Of course they will not give me those out of integrity reasons. Therefore I apologize here instead! 

Should you have been affected, send me a copy of the original “Out of Print” message of Adlibris or your book vendor in this period, and I will happily give you a 50% discount on a personal, individual EFT session with me per telephone or Skype.

I wish you all a Happy New 2017 with many new interesting books to read.

Now officially educator for Informator

I am soo happy. Just signed an agreement with the renowned education firm Informator to offer 3 of my courses this spring:


 

 

 

 

 

“Highly relevant courses and just in time!”, as Tobias Strandh, their chief of education, remarked.

All courses are to be held in Swedish, delivered in Stockholm to begin with. Other locations on request.
You will find them in their spring catalog under Leadership specialized as well as Agile Leadership.

One of my references in the Agile Emotional Regulation: 
  • “For years I have engaged Sara for services in both Agile Coaching as well as Agile Emotional Control (EFT) for my personal working with Agile IT Development. This both Scrum Masters, agile team members as the line manager level.” // Kit Gullbrandson, Business Unit Director, Cybercom  

The first edition of my new book – SOLD OUT – in just two weeks

The first edition of my Swedish inspirational book about stressreduction “Lugn i Stormen – EFT:Första hjälpen för den sjuka jobbstressen” was sold out 2 weeks after release, YES!

I released the book at the exhibition FitForLife / AlltFörHälsan in Älvsjö end of November, where I worked in the EFT Association booth. We where demonstrating the efficacy of EFT for anyone wanting to try it out. We cleared relationship issues, vertigo, writer´s blocks, sorrow, sadness, pains and numerous fears, just to mention some issues. At the exhibition we tap on people to demonstrate quick results in this noisy and open environment. EFT is however really a self-help method that you can use yourself.

Rene, that I had met on an Executive’s Global Network meeting the day before also tried the method. I later received this email from him:
– I can attest that this method really works. After only one session, I can deal with my fear of heights in a whole new way! I feel calm and confident when I think of or am located in high altitudes. Many thanks!
Rene Lambin IT Operations Manager Capio S:t Görans Sjukhus

I also got the opportunity to speak about EFT Tapping for full house. All seats were taken, people standing at the tables at the back of the room and there were even people sitting on the floor in the hallway next to the seats.

img_0126

img_0127It was so rewarding being able to present both the book and the new upgrade of the iPhone app:  GO EFT Tapping©, now Free and available both in English and Arabic.

The next edition of the book is already uploaded to Bokrondellen, which means that any day now it will be searchable on www.Adlibris.se and other bookstores everywhere. Stay tuned! People were so fond of the format with Wire-O binding, so I decided to keep it to the next edition. It enables you to keep the book open by itself while following the instructions and finding the points.

Happy tapping!

Wow – EFT To Be Offered To All Education Workers

EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique is making its way into mainstream, also in schools. Thanks to Pika Rajnar´s excellent and persistent work, the government is actually funding 75 percent of EFFT training for all teachers and educational workers in Slovenian secondary and primary schools and kindergarten. The training will be based around AAMET training materials.

This is such a great landmark for EFT – that a national government sees fit to include it for all educational workers and award the training its highest level of funding.”

I look forward to the day when EFT is equally known and respected as efficient stress management tool in the business world.

AAMET is the same organisation as behind my EFT certification.

Great news from the AAMET…!

Tapping invades Swedish culture – soon everyone will have heard about it

I am so happy to see that EFT and other variants of Tapping have entered Swedish culture! Fun-Fun!

 

Television:

In the first episode of the childrens movie, Pepparkornen, the young heroine, taps with her grandma, as they have just discussed the stress of moving and changing schools. Their tapping is interrupted by her ignorant father. But still: tapping was displayed in a natural setting. Just as natural as it often happens in my own home when someone is distressed or in pain…

Irene Ödmark-Hall was interviewed for Fråga Doktorn at SVT, a well known health program on the Swedish national television. Irene and EFT comes at 6:40 into the programm.

Several EFT books have recently been published in Swedish or by Swedish authors:

Even ourkindlefire_600x1024 (2) own Green Smoothies – Wellness and Weight Loss Recipes (e-book on Amazon) includes a small chapter on addressing the emotional side of eating with EFT tapping.

EFT Tapping has been present in Swedish magazines before, e.g.:

  • TARA nr 5 2014 (bl.a. om Meggan, som knackade bort sin flygrädsla.)
  • Free (Nick Ortner and the new book: Knacka dig fri med EFT)
  • Amelia (På 1 session blev journalisten av med sötsuget.)
  • Inspire (Varför är metoden så snabb?)
  • ToppHälsa (Sötsuget försvann på 3 gånger.)
  • Hälsa (KnackPunkten (fd LivsFröjd) är en del av lösningen.)

In my vision of the future, it is just as common to tap as to take an aspirin or to take a nap or drink.

YES! TFT (the predecessor of EFT) registered by SAMHSA as evidence based practise in NREPP

TFT (Thought Field Therapy), a predecessor of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, i.e. Tapping) has now been registered by SAMHSA, a government agency in the United States in their so called NREPP database as an evidence based effective treatment. 

EFT which I and many with me, offer as a form of coaching and/or therapy is already submitted and is probably also going to recorded during 2016 as well! YES!

I just wonder when the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) is going to realize what´s going on…?

SAMHSA states that TFT is as an effective treatment according to NREPP standards for:

  • Trauma (PTSD) and Stressor-Related Disorders and Symptoms
  • Self-Regulation
  • Personal Resilience/Self-Concept

Other symptoms for which TFT also looked promising were:

  • Phobia, Panic, and Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Symptoms
  • Depression & Depressive Symptoms
  • General Functioning & Well-Being
  • as well as some other disorders and symptoms

New EFT book in Swedish!

Thank you, Susanne Nilsjö, my tapping colleague, for contributing to the Swedish EFT literature with:

Nya EFT-Boken : Genvägen till ett friskare gladare och roligare liv!

From the Swedish description of the book:  “Stressar du upp dig över småsaker? Oroar du dig för mycket? Är du lite sur och grinig ibland? Har du någon gång önskat att det fanns någon superenkel, supereffektiv metod som kunde göra ditt liv lite lättare och roligare? Grattis! Du har precis hittat den! Här är din snabbguide till EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), en av de enklaste och mest effektiva självhjälpsmetoder som finns. Allt som behövs för att komma igång är ett par fingrar att “knacka” med, sedan är det bara att följa de tydliga bilderna och instruktionerna i boken. Kan det bli mycket enklare? ”

This is not Susannes first EFT book about Tapping, the previous one was:
EFT – nyckeln till verklig frihet

From the Swedish description of the book: “* Är du trött på att vara rädd? * Begränsas ditt liv av fobier? * Vill du ha bättre relationer? * Vill du ta ansvar för ditt välmående? EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) är en unik självhjälpsmetod där man knackar på utvalda akupunktur-punkter för att ta bort störningar och blockeringar som kan uppstå i kroppens energisystem. Miljontals människor använder EFT dagligen för att knacka bort besvär som: Fobier-Smärta-Migrän-Rädslor-Oro-Beroenden Sorg-Ilska-Panikångest-Stress-Sömnsvårigheter Detta är en enkel kom-igång-guide där du steg för steg lär dig grunderna i EFT med hjälp av tydliga bilder och instruktioner.Här finns också flera exempel på vardagliga situationer där du kan ha nytta av EFT. “

Yes! Healthday in Sweden shows tapping again

Sooo looking forward to participating and showing EFT Tapping to the Swedish Health interested people as Hälsodagen (that 1,6 miljonersklubben is arranging as a charity event at Stora Skuggan, Frescati on Sunday this week. 11-15.

Part of the proceeds goes to the refugees and the rest of health research).

You can choose to come and try this remarkable simple stress reducing technique.

 

Who knows, it might be the beginning of your new life. It was for me when I first encountered it. I count life in before and after EFT Tapping.
