“Emotional Freedom Techniques for MC and RA Recovery”
Melisa Noel has nineteen years in the trauma recovery field in a variety of roles. As a professional therapeutic foster parent, she specialized in severely traumatized children with dissociative “disorders,” autistic spectrum, borderline family systems, and much more. In addition to her Bachelors in Sociology, she has extensive training in attachment work, sexually and physically aggressive youth, sexual abuse and domestic violence, cult/mind control/torture/programming patterns, working with cultural and sexual minorities, mediation and conflict resolution. Melisa wrote and presented multiple research papers in Social Psychology at academic symposiums around the U.S., and was awarded Excellence in Undergraduate Research by the National Science Foundation in 2002. She also received two years of intensive training on EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) specifically for trauma recovery. In addition to her professional experiences, Melisa is an adult survivor of a pedophile porn ring. She began her personal recovery journey in 1993, at age nineteen, before organized commercialized crime against children was a recognized form of abuse. Melisa has used EFT as a primary tool in her own recovery process, and is now an EFT practitioner, as well as a consultant, presenter and workshop facilitator on the latest research and applications for trauma recovery.
What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)? How and why does it work for trauma? And why are practitioners falling in love with it? In this webinar, EFT Practitioner, Melisa Noel, will introduce current research showing EFT to be as effective as EMDR, with some of the latest science supporting these findings. Participants will receive a brief introduction to a few of the EFT techniques designed for working with trauma. Additionally, we’ll talk about how EFT is particularly helpful when working gently and lovingly with protector parts that can often create flooding, overwhelm, self-harm and destructive relationship patterns. Lastly, we’ll touch on some pieces to notice when using EFT with dissociative genius (a.k.a. “disorders”), and/or with MC/RA survivors. Opportunities for Q & A with the presenter will be included. Whether you’re a survivor or a practitioner, if you want to know more about EFT from an integrated perspective with science, practical application, and compassion, this is a great introduction.
