EFT in Schools

Children are facing increasing stress and emotional challenges…

In the ever-evolving landscape of education, educators and learning coordinators are constantly seeking innovative ways to support their students’ emotional and academic growth. One such powerful tool making its way into classrooms is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), commonly known as tapping.

This holistic approach to emotional well-being is proving to be a game-changer in schools, helping students overcome limiting beliefs and fostering a positive, conducive learning environment.

Below we explore how schools and teachers can incorporate EFT into the classroom, its safety, specific benefits, and how educators can access EFT workshops to enhance their skills.

What is EFT/Tapping

Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, is a therapeutic method that combines elements of cognitive therapy and acupressure. It involves tapping on specific meridian points on the body while focusing on a particular emotional issue or problem. This practice aims to release negative emotions, reduce stress, and improve emotional well-being.

A Tool For Transformation in Schools

1. Empowering Students with Emotional Resilience: Schools can use EFT as a tool to help students build emotional resilience. It equips them with essential skills to manage stress, anxiety, and emotional challenges effectively. By learning how to tap on their feelings, students can address negative emotions before they escalate, creating a healthier emotional atmosphere in the classroom.

2. Overcoming Limiting Beliefs: EFT is particularly effective in helping students address limiting beliefs that might hinder their academic and personal growth. Through tapping, students can release these negative thought patterns and develop a more positive mindset. Learning coordinators can play a crucial role in identifying and assisting students struggling with limiting beliefs.

3. Stress Reduction: The modern school environment can be stressful for both students and teachers. Incorporating short EFT sessions during the school day can help reduce stress levels for everyone. This can lead to improved focus, better emotional regulation, and ultimately, enhanced academic performance.

It’s Safe!

EFT is a safe and non-invasive practice, making it suitable for students of all ages. It doesn’t involve any medications, and the tapping is gentle and easy to learn. Educators can implement EFT confidently in their classrooms, knowing that it poses no harm to their students. It’s a tool that encourages self-awareness and emotional regulation without any negative side effects.

Specific Uses in the Classroom
