Healing From Trauma Using the EFT Technique and The Alcohol–Rape Connection
October 15, 2009
Hosted by Susan Bartelstone
Two thought-provoking topics today: Alternative healing techniques and the connection between alcohol and rape. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), known as tapping, is most closely analogous to ancient Chinese meridian healing systems—except that it's designed to aid in the relief of both physical pain AND deep emotional trauma; and there's an impressive amount of anecdotal evidence from thousands of people, including children, who've experienced relief using this method. Crime Prevention Specialist Susan Bartelstone interviews EFT Practitioner Sophia Cayer about this non-traditional technique. Then she’ll be speaking with provocative writer/anti-rape activist Jaclyn Friedman whose body of work has become a popular reference for new thinking about preventing rape without shaming or blaming the victim. The conversation starts with the drinking and rape link and then anything else that comes up…from the Chris Brown case, Miley Cyrus, the rape culture and who knows where we’ll land.
