EFT Practitioner’s Handbook

EFT Practitioner's Handbook of Addictions, Self-Harm and Eating Disorders by Masha Bennett is now available to order as an e-book or in printed format.

This 40 page, A5 format practical handbook is aimed at all EFT practitioners who are interested in working with these complex client groups, and gives a detailed account of the most important aspects of work with Addictions, Self-Harm and Eating Disorders. It offers advice on safety, efficacy of different EFT approaches and specialist knowledge required to deal with the complexities of these issues. The Handbook assumes prior EFT knowledge and experience at the level equivalent to at least AAMET Level 1 training, and is likely to be especially beneficial for Level 2 Practitioners.

"The handbook is fantastic, I just read all of it in one go.... It's enlightening and makes sense, and I know I will use it so much! Now I have so many ideas going around my head for all the different clients I am working with." (Amanda, Senior Eating Disorders Practitioner & Registered Mental Nurse)

"It is a realistic and straightforward guide to Masha’s approach to working with people with addictions, self-harm and eating disorders. It would be an excellent guide for an EFT Practitioner getting involved in this kind of work or an experienced worker in this field who wants to add EFT to their toolbox." (Andy Hunt, EFT Advanced Practitioner & Trainer - read Andy's full review of the Handbook)

All profits from sale of the Handbook between September 2012 and April 2013 will go to support The Sri Lanka Counselling Project.
