EFT recognised by American Psychological Association

Break out the Champagne! EFT Meets APA Standards

American Psychological Association logoUntil now, EFT hasn’t had official recognition by psychological bodies, despite mounting piles of evidence to support its effectiveness. But now the American Psychological Association has recognised it as an ‘evidence-based’ practice. This recognises that while it’s not scientifically known exactly how it works, the evidence shows that it does work.

Here’s what the EFTUniverse.com site says:

News flash from EFTUniverse.com:

“This week we changed the EFT Research page to read as follows: “The current status of EFT as an “evidence-based” practice is summarized in this statement in the APA (American Psychological Association) journal Review of General Psychology: ‘A literature search identified 50 peer-reviewed papers that report or investigate clinical outcomes following the tapping of acupuncture points to address psychological issues. The 17 randomized controlled trials in this sample were critically evaluated for design quality, leading to the conclusion that they consistently demonstrated strong effect sizes and other statistical results that far exceed chance after relatively few treatment sessions. Criteria for evidence-based treatments proposed by Division 12 of the American Psychological Association were also applied and found to be met for a number of conditions, including PTSD.’ (Feinstein, in press)” This is sober academic language for a seismic shift in the geography of healing. For the past five years, we’ve worked incredibly hard, through unbelievable obstacles, to complete the research required to meet APA Division 12 standards. This milestone, published in an APA journal, marks a tipping point in EFTs credibility.”
