We all want our kids to be happy and confident.
With the increasing pressures faced by children today, this can be challenging to achieve.
Research and statistics indicate that children are more stressed, busier, and emotionally stretched than ever.
Tap Happy gives teachers and parents the tools to support students in facing these pressures.
Tap Happy is a simple and easy to implement program that utilizes Tapping in schools
to create happy and confident kids.
WHAT IS TAPPING?
Tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is a fast and simple evidence-based self-help tool.
Combining ancient Chinese acupressure with modern psychology, this technique helps to achieve freedom from
emotional issues that are creating stress, and preventing us from leading happy and fulfilled lives.
Tapping can be used to address:
● Friendship difficulties
● School refusal
● Separation anxiety
● Self-esteem issues
● Coping with new experiences
● Anger management
● Building resilience
● Exam worries
Tapping is easy to learn, teach, and implement. It is self administered, and involves using the fingers
to tap on a set of specific acupressure points on the body. This tapping action sends a calming message
to the amygdala (the fight, flight or freeze centre of the brain), which leads to soothed emotions, allowing
the “Tapper” to approach the issue at hand from a more centred and mindful perspective.
BRINGING TAPPING TO SCHOOLS
Tap Happy brings Tapping into the school setting to support teachers and students alike.
Through teacher training sessions and classroom implementation support, this simple, science-backed
technique equips teachers and Learning Support Officers with a tool that can be applied to any
challenging or stressful situation in their own lives and in those of the children they care for.
Just a few minutes each day will positively impact teacher stress levels and a student’s emotional resilience and ability to learn.
