Brief Overview of Energy Psychology


CE's Available: 1 ACEP CEs, 1 CRCH CE Hours [Approval Details]

Course Description:

Energy psychology,” sometimes called “psychological acupressure,” combines established clinical procedures with tapping on acupuncture points. This sends electrical signals to specific areas of the brain involved in information processing and promotes neural reorganization. In the space of a decade, energy psychology has moved from a set of interventions that had generated little support and strong skepticism among therapists to becoming perhaps the most popular psychological approach in history, with more than 6 million visits in June 2013 to the top five websites representing the topic and more than half a million people participating in the 2013 online “Tapping Summit.” Its reported effectiveness with trauma led numerous disaster relief groups to adapt it before research had evaluated it, but subsequent studies have now demonstrated its efficacy with PTSD along with numerous other conditions. However, its techniques still look strange, its use of terms like “energy” and “thought fields” do not fit conventional paradigms, and many therapists are still trying to make sense of this recent development. This course, based on an article published in Psychotherapy Networker, provides a quick introduction for clinicians curious about whether to learn more about the approach. The article is called The Case for Energy Psychology, Snake Oil or Designer Tool for Neural Change?
