How Energy Psychology Fits In

David Feinstein On Using Emotional Freedom Techniques in Practice

Energy Psychology is a discipline that’s increasingly gaining acceptance from therapists working with clients who are anxious, who struggle in the present with early attachment wounds, or who are dealing with overwhelming trauma.

By combining Emotional Freedom Techniques, the use of acupuncture points, and other somatic approaches with existing psychotherapeutic protocols, Energy Psychology gives us a way to neutralize the charge of unresolved attachment wounds quickly, reduce anxiety, provide relief from recent trauma, and enhance a client’s ability to self-regulate.

Watch the video below to see David Feinstein demonstrate a straightforward intervention using the Emotional Freedom Technique called “tapping.”

David Feinstein, co-author of The Promise of Energy Psychology, is one of six therapeutic leaders featured in our new video webcast series, Attachment Theory in Practice. The series offers a look at the specific attachment-related tools and methods used in the professional practices of Diane Poole Heller, Bruce Ecker, Susan Johnson, Daniel Hughes, and Maggie Phillips.

  2. Yes, it’s great that Energy Psychology is getting more exposure in this community. These tools are being used around the world by first-responder teams to help people recover from disasters and war. Yet the tools can so simple to employ, I’ve taught children to use them independently.

  3. Dan Rebek,Ph.D. says:

    Does anyone know of a peer-reviewed, double-blind randomized controlled study of tapping? anything replicated by independent researchers?
    Would be great if tapping was truly effective, but…..
