Healthcare, Educators and Policy Makers – Is Therapy Facing a Revolution?? – Why EFT deserves your attention

Very recently NICE published the PTSD guideline recommending further research into EFT. Now TEDx has released a clear and useful introduction and summary of progress to date by Dr Peta Stapleton, Clinical Psychologist and Researcher at Bond University

Here Peta proposes that Therapy is Facing a Revolution – A 4th wave of approaches coming through disrupting the traditional therapy space – and it might be a tidal wave. EFT / Tapping as a body based or somatic approach now has over 130 research trials.

It’s time to pay attention to the outcomes.  Enjoy the watch and share far and wide everyone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Vu0Tibt1bQ

Seeking help – how to prepare

 

Starting to reach out for help around mental health problems may seem difficult. Ideally anyone mental health problem who visits their GP practice will get the support that best suits their needs.

Your GP is there to help mental health as well as physical health. Around one third of all GP appointments are related to mental health.

“The first time I went to my GP about my depression,

I was completely terrified. I had suffered in silence

for 6 months, and was so ashamed

that I couldn’t ‘fix’ it myself.”

Under 18 female self harm hospital admissions continue to rise

” The number of admissions to hospital of girls under the age of 18 in England after self-harming has nearly doubled compared with 20 years ago.

CALL TO ACTION

  • Parents and schools are urged to become more aware and seek early advice and interventions.
  • Self harm is not attention seeking
  • Enquire or book a place or your organisation on a MHFA course to become more confident in recognising the early signs and following the appropriate steps to support
  • Enquire or book 1-1 session work to help the young person with underlying causes
  • Follow safeguarding policy
  • Do not hesitate to call emergency services if needed
