Using Energy Psychology to Treat Overwhelming Affect: A Rapid Transformative Approach

Increasingly, therapists are discovering that when clients are immobilized by trauma or overwhelming affect, there’s a method that can help resolve the problem. Energy Psychology (EP) techniques are easy to learn.

With ongoing research that includes over 70 published studies and three meta-analyses, EP approaches have proven to be effective exposure-based therapies to treat a wide range of mental health issues within an overall therapeutic approach.

In this workshop recording, you’ll learn how to integrate this therapy with your current methods to regulate emotional overarousal.
