Thank you for participating in the Tapping Out of Trauma 2.0 Training Course (the “Course”) offered by Tap Your Power, LLC and presented by Craig Weiner, DC and Suzanne Fageol, CC (collectively the “Presenters”). This Release & Participation Agreement (the “Agreement”) contains important information Tap Your Power, LLC needs to share with you and for you to understand regarding your enrollment in the Course. By participating in the Course, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
1. The Course is designed solely for helping professionals who have successfully completed the Tapping Out of Trauma 1.0 Training Course and have experience using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or other meridian tapping techniques with clients on a broad range of issues. The focus of the Course is to provide participants with an advanced educational opportunity to learn how to work with clients experiencing trauma using EFT. By participating in Course, you represent and warrant you have experience as an EFT or meridian tapping practitioner.
2. The Course is delivered in 6 weeks and consists of the following components to be provided to participants by Tap Your Power, LLC:
- 6 consecutive weekly 90-minute online classes
- Course materials, including video interviews and 2 pre-recorded demonstrations
- Course PDF’s of PowerPoint slides and other course materials
- Online facilitated private Facebook forum
3. The fee for the Course is $399 U.S, payable to Tap Your Power, LLC prior to the commencement of the Course. You may cancel your participation in the Course at any time by notifying Tap Your Power, LLC. If you decide to cancel your participation in the Course, you will be entitled to a refund of the Course fee, but only if you cancel your participation prior to the second week of the Course. If you do not cancel your participation in the Course prior to the second week, you will not be entitled to any refund of the Course fee.
4. The information presented during the Course, including videos, PDF’s of PowerPoint slides, handouts, articles, books, ideas, suggestions, techniques, trainings, exercises, activities, processes, instructions, and other materials is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
5. Although EFT appears to have promising physical, mental, and emotional health benefits, including being beneficial for trauma, and there is a growing amount of valid scientific research indicating that EFT meets the criteria to be considered an evidence-based technique, EFT has yet to be fully accepted by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Since EFT is a relatively new approach to health and wellness and for the treatment of trauma, the extent of its effectiveness, as well as its risks and benefits, are not fully known. Therefore, you agree to assume and accept full responsibility for any and all risks associated with using EFT and for applying what you may learn from participating in the Course. Further, you agree to only use what you may learn from participating in the Course regarding applying EFT with clients experiencing trauma within your legally defined scope of practice
6. You understand that the Course is an educational program and is not to be considered treatment for any physical/medical problem or emotional or mental disorder, nor is the Course a substitute for traditional methods of medical or psychological diagnosis and treatment. You agree to consult with your licensed health care provider(s) for any specific medical or psychological problems and to continue any medical or psychological treatment you may be currently receiving.
7. Please be advised by participating in the Course, it’s possible to experience some emotional distress or physical discomfort. It’s also possible to experience some emotional distress and/or physical discomfort related to stressful or traumatic experiences you may have had earlier in your life. You agree to stop any process, exercise, or any other Course activity should your participation in the Course inadvertently activate distressing reactions in you.
