 Course Summary

A whole person approach recognizes that stress and trauma are almost always significant factors in the development and/or course of disease of most problems brought to integrative practitioners. Energy Psychology (EP) is a family of focused and brief approaches that rapidly release effects of unresolved small “t” or big “T” trauma in the mind-body system. The most common form of EP is known as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or tapping. A significant body of research (over 125 studies) has shown EP to be a highly effective brief treatment of trauma in contexts that range from war related PTSD in US veterans to the effects of genocide in Rwandan orphans. EP treatment is usually gentle without abreaction. This presentation provides an elegant introduction to the theory, research, and practice of EP in treating trauma. Discover how to remove the negative energy/emotions from traumatic events that facilitates healing and post traumatic growth.
