Dec. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Disaster relief teams from the humanitarian organization EFT Global have been active in several regions in the past year. EFT is an acronym for an evidence-based trauma treatment called Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT Global has announced a new web site, EFTGlobal.org, that creates an online community for training, communication and the coordination of humanitarian projects.

EFT volunteer teams have been active in many parts of the world, including in Haiti and Pakistan after the earthquakes in those countries. EFT practitioners have also worked with survivors of several shooting incidents in the US, including Fort Hood, Texas, and Newtown, Connecticut. Several randomized controlled trials have shown that EFT is effective for traumatic stress, with PTSD symptoms dropping by 35% to 92% after treatment. EFT is fast and easy to learn, and is commonly applied as a self-help technique.

EFT Global’s mission is to bring these benefits to three primary populations:  

1.      Those affected by natural and human-caused disasters,

2.      Those living among weakened social and political systems, and

3.      Other humanitarian workers who are experiencing primary or secondary trauma as the result of helping others on a day-to-day basis

EFT Global’s directors are diverse, bringing very different skills, experiences and perspectives to the organization. President Carrie McCabe is a business coach based in the US. Vice president Diane von der Weid is a former UN aid worker based in Switzerland, while vice president David MacKay is a Canadian businessman living in Mexico. The team was brought together by Dawson Church, who administers EFT Universe, one of the largest alternative medicine sites on the web.

One of EFT Global’s longer-term goals is to proactively avert human-caused disasters in collaboration with other trauma experts, humanitarian organizations and local groups in an effort to promote global peace. EFT Global also aspires to encourages the wide-spread use of EFT self-help through the web site, to alleviate disharmony and distress as close to the source of suffering as possible.
