Energy Psychology (EP) techniques combine imaginal exposure with physical stimulation (usually tapping) of various acupressure points (acupoints) on the skin. This process can often result in rapid desensitisation of psychological distress accompanied by beneficial cognitive shifts. The techniques are easy to learn and apply, they can be integrated within a range of psychological therapies, and can be taught to clients for self-help applications.
A growing evidence base has found EP techniques to be effective in treating a spectrum of psychological disorders, including a wide range of anxiety-based conditions (Feinstein, 2012; Church, 2013; Benor, 2014; Gilomen and Lee, 2105).
This workshop will provide a practical introduction to 2 well-known Energy Psychology protocols: Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Simple Energy Techniques (SET) and their application to treating anxiety. It will include live demonstration of the techniques as well as practical and experiential exercises. The available research evidence will be outlined, and answers given to your important questions regarding this emerging field.
