Emotional Freedom Techniques for Children in the Classroom

Why Tapping?

Why Tapping?

Reduced Anxiety & Stress

We know students who are engaged in content have better retention and improved problem solving skills. But students often face barriers that prevent active engagement learning such as stress. Stress has the potential to effect memory, concentration, and problem solving ability that can lead to decreased student engagement and self-directed learning.

The Evidence Behind EFT


EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a brief novel intervention combining elements of exposure and cognitive therapy, and somatic stimulation. It is often referred to as ‘psychological acupuncture’ and uses a two finger tapping process with a cognitive statement.

EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals.

Australian research has found EFT for obesity and food cravings (Stapleton, et al., 2016; Stapleton, Sheldon, Porter & Whitty, 2011; Stapleton, Sheldon & Porter, 2012) and smoking (Stapleton, Porter & Sheldon, 2012) to be extremely successful and durable over time.

Efficacy has also been established for phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and pain.

We are going ONLINE in 2017!

Please join the mailing list for advanced notice of the online training program. It will be available for any teacher in any country to self pace through the training, and will release in late 2017. You will be supported by an online forum, and is suitable for any teacher who is brand new to Tapping (EFT).

Our signature training which is held in person may still occur in Australia and Canada when there is demand, so join the mailing list for advanced notice.

The online training covers the basics of EFT and how to apply to common academic, social and peer concerns. Our trials have found these issues are common in classrooms: anger, anxiety, bullying, perfectionism, judgment, morale and motivation.

Tapping in the Classroom is designed for teachers to have a self driven technique to address their own concerns, as well as a tool to teach students for everyday stress and anxiety.
