Alan found the development of the formulation to be one of the most helpful aspects of therapy. It enabled him to make sense of his experiences and, despite his biological view of depression, to consider the role his own perceptions and beliefs might play in maintaining his difficulties. The formulation also provided Alan with a cogent rationale for engaging in interventions that were difficult and distressing for him. Examples of how standard interventions were adapted to tackle Alan's problems were described earlier.

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.
