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.
