The Promise of Energy Psychology: A Systematic Introduction

About the Course:

The Promise of Energy Psychology introduces the basic concepts and practices of this important new clinical development. By working with the body’s energies, it is possible to rapidly and non-invasively shift neurology, to literally change the patterns in the brain that maintain unwanted habits, maladaptive emotions, and self-limiting ways of thinking. Promise addresses a wide range of topics, from the treatment of emotional problems (anxiety, irrational fear, trauma reactions, depression, and addictions are all addressed) to cultivating potentials and peak performance to increasing “emotional intelligence.” The reader comes to understand the body’s energy systems and learns ways of working with them to bring harmony and balance to emotions, thoughts, and behavior and literally reprogram the body’s response to stress.
