TAKING EFT INTO SCHOOLS
In one US study, suicide was found to be the third leading cause of death among teenagers, whilst 25% of teenagers suffer from anxiety disorders
According to YoungMinds (a UK mental health charity), nearly one million children between the ages of 5 and 15 now have mental health problems like depression and anxiety and the numbers are rising.
Although there is widespread concern about the mental health issues of children, there appears to be reluctance in some areas among educators to embrace EFT as a tool to alleviate stress for both children AND teachers. Perhaps there needs to be more widespread awareness and in this regard, The EFT Register would like to set up an EFT in Schools Project or something similar with the help of our members. We have already secured interest from many and some are already doing some good work. Maria Barrington from the UK for example has created a social enterprise ‘Healing Space, Liverpool’ to extend access to emotional wellbeing activities to those who are socially or economically excluded. Sean Grey had his article appear in a Welsh newspaper. Following on from (quote) the excellent article Anya Berry from the UK is attending a meeting to discuss taking EFT into schools. We have members from around the world who are also doing some very good work.
We will be using the page to add posts and interesting articles on what is happening within schools to combat stress and will also include the work of our members in this area.
If you’re not a member – it would be a good idea to join now! If you have an article to share (any language accepted) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SOME ARTICLES HAVE BEEN KINDLY DONATED BY MEMBERS AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN RESEARCHED AND RESOURCED BY OUR ADMIN STAFF.
