EFT-related ‘You-Tube’ Clips

The Still-Face experiment by Dr Edward Tronick. This is attachment theory in action and shows a child’s reaction when the mother does not respond or interact with the child. Much research supports the view that adults react in similar ways when their partner, their loved one, shuts them out, does not respond and / or shuts down emotionally to them.  This is very powerful:   Still-Face Experiment

Brene Brown is a well renown researcher into human connection, love and belonging. She talks about and shares her own experience of shame and vulnerability. This clip of Brene sharing her vulnerability has had over 13 million views and is well worth taking the time to watch:  Brene Brown: The Power of Vulnerability.

Research including brain scans have become an important way of measuring effectiveness of EFT. Here Sue talks about the fMRI study showing that connection with a loved one changes how we respond to threat and pain:  Soothing the Threatened Brain.
