Introduction to Energy Psychology

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Introduction to Energy Psychology is a 1-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that describes the history, uses, and benefits of energy psychology treatment models.

This course will focus on the use of energy psychology and how it can help health professionals who are seeking a holistic approach to work with patients. Energy psychology has its origins from acupuncture and can be used to address many emotional and behavioral problems. While it has many modalities, the most well-known is the use of acupressure (tapping) to stimulate meridian points on the face, hands, and upper body.

The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is now the most popular model and has become an integral part of energy research studies. EFT was approved for continuing education credits by the American Psychological Association in 2012 and over 80 research studies have demonstrated its success. It has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of trauma, depression, stress, anxiety, fears, addictions, weight loss, and with the side effects of hormonal therapies. While more research is needed to validate the many aspects of energy work, new research indicates EFT can also help address food cravings and increase self-compassion.

This course will also demonstrate how to conduct a general energy psychology treatment along with a chart indicating the locations of meridian points used in these treatments.
