Examples of appropriate posts:

  • Notice of upcoming EFT-relevant/related groups or workshops
  • Referral requests
  • Organizing peer EFT consultation groups
  • Requests for EFT case advice (please be sure to eliminate any identifying information that could compromise client confidentiality)
  • Notice of office openings, sublets sought or offered
  • Sharing of EFT articles, information links and materials
  • NEW! Notice of Non-EFT-related groups or events that may be of interest to psychotherapy professionals may be posted on the NCCEFT list serve on Mondays only

Examples of posts not appropriate to the NCCEFT mission:

  • Political petitions
  • Solicitation of charitable donations (for non-NCCEFT causes)
  • Advertising services not reasonably related to EFT
  • Personal announcements or advertisements for events, products or services

When in doubt, please check with the steering committee Chair at: ncceftchair@gmail.com
