Bond University in Australia with Dr. Peta Stapleton, have released their findings of a tapping/EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) study in schools. Their research is featured in Education Review this week (radio and print).
They report how effective EFT is in reducing exam stress in the grade 10 students they worked on. They taught EFT to around a 120 high achieving students, a group who are often vulnerable to high stress and anxiety. They focused on problems such as exam stress, fear of failure and perfectionism. After 6 weeks of EFT the results were impressive, especially in the area of ‘resilience’.
