    Energy Psychology Essentials Introduction

    Background Some truly exciting new upgrades in the field of psychology have been unfolding over the last

    couple of decades that are beginning to align psychology with the stunning discoveries that have

    been made over the past 75 years in the field of quantum physics. Energy Psychology is among

    such innovations leading the way into twenty-first century psychotherapy, appearing to provide

    rapid, reliable and lasting intervention of a broadening range of psychological issues through

    utilizing some of the principles of quantum physics.

    Despite having been involved with integrative health and spiritual psychology since the mid 1970s,

    I had to battle with the classically trained clinical psychologist part of me to put aside my great

    reluctance and skepticism in order to attend my first Energy Psychology training program in 1995.

    This proved to be the beginning of a quite unexpected odyssey that resulted in my becoming the

    Founding President of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology in 1999. This non-

    profit organization has since grown into the preeminent international leader in helping the Energy

    Psychology field mature and expand its visibility. I retired as ACEPs Founding President in 2002

    only to return to help create, consult and be a trainer for ACEPs certification programs.

    Prior to co-founding ACEP, I had developed the first training program in Energy Psychology

    methods that was granted Continuing Education credit in Californias highly selective Mandatory

    Continuing Education Program for Psychologists. One aspect of my leadership commitment as

    ACEPs Founding President was to obtain in-depth training in as many Energy Psychology methods

    as my time and energy allowed. The list of methods in which I have been trained is too long to

    include here, but I mention this because part of my mission was to distill the common ingredients

    among the various methods. My gift as an innovator is not developing completely new methods but

    rather in integrating multiple theories or methods into a unified superstructure.

    Energy Psychology Essentials is the result of my integration efforts in the field of Energy

    Psychology, which remains to this day but one of my areas of professional and personal interest.

    Mastering the Energy Psychology Essentials superstructure appears to enable practitioners to

    become excellent Energy Psychology practitioners and troubleshooters. This superstructure also

    seems to provide practitioners with a big-picture understanding that makes it much easier integrate

    future training many choose to receive in specialized Energy Psychology methods. I hope that you

    Energy Psychology Essentials training provides you with these benefits and much more!

    What is Energy Psychology? Energy Psychology (EP) is the name of a recently-emerging family of mind-body integrative

    interventions that appear to rapidly and durably intervene with a range of psychological and

    spiritual issues, from phobias, trauma and limiting beliefs, to peak performance and creativity. EP

    methods accomplish this through combining conventional psychotherapeutic principles with

    explicitly and methodically rebalancing aspects of the human vibrational matrix. This matrix may

    include over a half dozen inter-related systems, the most well-known of which are the layers of the

    electromagnetic biofield (the energetic envelope surrounding and permeating the body), chakras

    (centers of concentrated bioenergy) and meridians (pathways through which electromagnetic
