Case Formulation

Mr. Turner held himself to unrealistically high standards for serving the congregation, his family, and God, and he was extremely harsh on himself when he inevitably failed to meet them. He also held his daughters and church members to these same excessively high standards. He believed that because of his position as choir director, his family was always being scrutinized by church members, so that any imperfection indicated that he and his family were poor role models. Similarly, he blamed himself when church members did not meet his unrealistically high standards, because it indicated he had failed to motivate them sufficiently. Furthermore, he interpreted any criti cism from choir members to mean that he was a "bad person." Therefore, to please others and avoid criticism, Mr. Turner was unassertive—even with his daughters and choir members.

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
