Emotional Freedom Techniques With Kathleen Weber

Kathleen Weber is a former school counselor of 25 years and is a Certified, Accredited Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioner.  She is passionate about bringing tools to educators and students that help to regulate emotions and calm the nervous system.  Prior to using these techniques, she felt like something was missing from her toolbox.  Students would return with the same issue time and time again, or they would return with the same theme, but different players. It wasn't until she learned how to use EFT that she felt she was truly making a difference.  In fact, she loved it so much that she started her own business to support educators experiencing burnout through individual sessions and to offer professional development for teachers, school counselors, and other school staff to bring these techniques into the classroom.

Key Takeaways
  • EFT techniques, help us sit and unpack or comfort our emotions by relieving stress in our body and nervous system.
  • EFT is centered on severing the tie between our emotional reaction and the event that occurred.
  • Emotional dysregulation stops our ability to connect with the thinking part of our brain, therefore making talk therapy less effective in the moment.
  • EFT isn't about avoiding triggers, but instead moving through them and being able to help ourselves deal with them.
  • EFT is a gentle, personal technique that is incredibly powerful.
  • There is a demonstration of a regulation technique! It is called “Tap and Breath”

Who am I?

I’ve been an educator in Massachusetts for 23 years.  I’m finishing my 16th year as a building leader.  I’m a teacher centered Principal and passionate about continuous improvement and the idea that success is not a destination, but a process. I’m active on social media, vlog about continuous improvement on a weekly basis, and wrote a book also called SEEing to Lead as a way to help everyone improve education as a whole by promoting my “just cause”: improving the educational experience for as many people as possible by being purposeful, acting with integrity, and building character.
