Hi Everyone,

Sometimes we have to sit back in Gratitudinal Awe at the dedication some people have for bettering the lives of others. Such is the case with Deepak Mostert and his efforts at Trauma Relief. In this report he details his efforts and methods for the victims of a 6.3 earthquake in Yogykarta.

The earthquake

On 27 May 2006, an earthquake, 6.3 on the Scale of Richter, hit the Yogykarta area. Since then there have been hundreds of minor earthquakes in the area and the nearby volcano Merapi is very active.

The details are that; 5,722 people died, 50,000 people were injured, 350,000 houses damaged or destroyed and 1,500,000 people are homeless. The infrastructure was damaged but mostly still intact.  

School program

The NGO, Yayasan Bahari Indonesia and Pak Cahyo Alkantana were my hosts.

When I arrived at Camp Bawuran, there was already an ongoing program for the schools. The school program was to support the teachers and children by organizing creative activities and Disaster Awareness training. This training was instruction in how to act in case of new disasters in a practical way and social studies information on earthquakes and tsunami’s. The EFT Trauma Relief Training was added and integrated into the school program.

EFT Trauma Relief Program

Our main concern was the numerous reports and observations from volunteers about many children, parents and teachers, who were traumatized by the earthquake. These reports were about the impact in loss of lives, bodily harm and material damage, and the many earthquakes that have followed.

Setup EFT TR Program

For the younger children, 5-8 years, I would first teach them EFT Trauma Relief as a game. Firstly, I would ask them how many children were afraid of a new earthquake. The response was nearly 100%. I would then ask how many children were afraid to go to sleep at night. The response was 80 %. I would then tell them that I could teach them a game to play when they felt this fear.

Info for EFT community

My experience was that every child was able to learn this technique. Some would have a bit of trouble finding the EB and SE point in the beginning and needed assistance. The CB point was too difficult for them to tap, so I taught them to use the whole hand. I used the Karate Point for the PR.

The children found the UA point hilarious and I used it as a build up in the game of tapping the 7 points. After practicing this game a few times on both “fear of a new earthquake” and “fear of going to sleep”, in which the parents would participate.

After this, I would talk to the parents and teachers and explain:
