FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHEN CONDUCTING & WRITING UP CASE STUDIES

How do I write my case studies?

All the information you need to work out how to write your case studies is in the case study guidance manual.  Read the manual in detail. Notably in:

  • Section 1. Preparing a Case Study - Has the broad headings to include in your case study, 1.1 Background Information, 1.2 Description of the Presenting Problem, 1.3 Assessment, 1.4 Intervention, 1.5 Outcome & 1.6 Post session review. I begin by reading the case study from post session review as I am curious to know your learning journey and reflections first. I am not seeking perfection, but want to know what did you learn and what would you do differently. The section that tends to need more detail is the Intervention Section where I am seeking information on what questions did you ask, what techniques did you use, did you keep the client safe and what was your thinking for your approach in the session and how did you overcome challenges. The Intervention section might end up being 1 to 1.5 pages of A4 using Size 12 font size. The other sections need only be a 2-3 sentences long.
  • For more information on what to include in the intervention section, read section 1.1, 2.1 and 2.2 of the case study guidance manual. You will also note in Section 4 there is an example of a model case study. It's written in the first person giving information about what the Practitioner did at each step.
Do I need to describe exactly what happens?

You need to describe enough that the person marking your case studies has a good feel of your understanding of the background, presenting problem, assessment, intervention, outcome and learning with more details in the Intervention section.

The case study must not be a full write of everything that happened, but rather what you did at each stage and how your client responded. The best way to understand how much to write is to read Section 4 in the case study manual which is an example of a case study write up.

What if the session does not work, can I still write it?

Yes you can still write it. I am not looking for an outcome but rather your personal development, observations, learning and insights as a result of the session. Your assessment of what worked and did not work and what you did great and could do better the next time. 

How many can be face to face versus online?

You can do a mix of face to face and online sessions. Considering the current lock down situation you can do online sessions. The only condition being that once awarded Practitioner certification, you will submit at least 2 in person case studies. It is recommended that you do a video online session with a recording instead of just a phone session.

What do I do if the issue changes, can I still write it ?

You can still write if the issues changes. Just check in with your client if they are ok with it and if they want to change the overall focus of the sessions. 

How many sessions can I complete in surrogate tapping?

Surrogate sessions are recommended for practice sessions and not the case study write ups. However, if you have not found a case study client and the only possibility is surrogate sessions then one of the clients can be surrogate working, however the second client must be non-surrogate work. 

How do I remember what happened during the case? As sometimes I am so focused on The case I forget what happened

Here are a some suggestions that might help, as I understand how sometimes you can get so focussed on the session with the client that it might be hard to remember when it comes time to write up the case study. For example, 

  • Ask for permission to record the session using the Disclaimer Form and record it
  • Straight after you finish the session jot some quick notes down in your journal: 1.  What was great?, 2. What could I do better? 3. What did I do? 4. What are my learnings?
  • You can just close your eyes and transport yourself back to your session. Chances are your memory will get triggered and you might remember.

What do I do if the issue changes, can I still write it ?

Surrogate sessions are recommended for practice sessions and not the case study write ups. However, if you have not found a case study client and the only possibility is surrogate sessions then one of the clients can be surrogate working, however the second client must be non-surrogate work. 

Can I record the case study sessions? What permission do I need?

You can record a case study however you need to get a disclaimer signed by the client before recording a session.

If more than a year has passed since attending training, how can I still become a Practitioner?

The rule is that if a year has passed, you need to re-attend training and complete supervision hours separately as well as submit 2 video recordings of one to one case study sessions. What I suggest if you are within 3 years of having completed training send me the 2 videos and attend supervision. If these are satisfactory you might not have to re-attend.

If you completed training 4-5 years ago it is recommended that you re-attend training as the format has changed so much as now it is a 4 day training instead of 3 days.

I get stuck in my own perfectionism and fear and get stuck and do nothing - how do I complete my case studies?

 If you get stuck in to your own perfectionism and fear it is recommended to complete your personal peace procedure and tap on yourself to clear the need for perfectionism and any fear that keeps you stuck. Alternatively you can get a sessions with your buddy or book a professional session with a Practitioner. 

Can I include sessions on myself?

 As per the case study guidelines you can work on yourself. Current guidelines state that there has to be 18 sessions in total so you can have 2 clients with 6 sessions each and the 3rd one can be yourself. Preference is you work with a professional practitioner and write up your experience or do a swap session with your buddy. However the case study must be completely your sessions. You cannot use your buddy’s session as your own.

Why do I have to complete supervision hours?

 If you get stuck in to your own perfectionism and fear it is recommended to complete your personal peace procedure and tap on yourself to clear the need for perfectionism and any fear that keeps you stuck. Alternatively you can get a sessions with your buddy or book a professional session with a Practitioner. 

What if my client is complete in 3 sessions, how do I complete the additional 3 sessions? Do I have to get another client?

On the website I have a sample whatsapp message of how to get a new client for a case study to commit for 6 sessions . So you have to get 2 clients to commit to 6 sessions each. You can include those 3 sessions in your record of case studies and not the actual case studies.

Can I submit the EFT Sessions I completed on myself as a part of the Record of Practice sessions?

The Record of Practice sessions is a record of EFT sessions only given to others. You cannot include your own self- work as a Record

Jin Shin Jhysu Exercises taught during class

Finger holds for Relaxation

During our time together I also shared the finger holds with you. This is based on a Japanese Ancient medicine known as Jin Shin Jhytsu (JSJ).

Hold the fingers one by one and keep breathing noticing yourself coming into stillness and just this moment. Breathe in for 6 and breathe out for 6.

A great way to remember which finger has which emotion is CLEAR Worry FAST. Thumb = Worry (sucking the thumb as a child), F-Fear, A-Anger, S-Sadness & T-Trying Too Hard. Then place the palm on palm to harmonise despondency. Breathe in and out 9 times and hold for 20 minutes to open into the Ocean of Bliss. Repeat daily as part of a self help stress relief and relaxation routine.
