https://www.eftuniverse.com – In the Clinical EFT Series, Dr. Dawson Church highlights key concepts that underpin the science and clinical practice of emotional freedom techniques – EFT – in a series of brief video talks.
The term “Clinical EFT” refers to the “evidence-based” method that has been validated in research studies that meet the requirements of the American Psychological Association (APA) Division 12 Task Force on Empirically Validated Therapies.
One of these Division 12 critieria is that the method studied be described in a manual. Clinical EFT is based on the method defined in The EFT Manual and supplementary materials. The EFT Manual appeared in print in 2008, with a second edition in 2010, and a third in 2013. The manual is supplemented by an extensive collection of case histories and commentary found on this site.
Some 48 distinct techniques are described in this body of knowledge. Clinical EFT has been validated by numerous studies in which EFT has been delivered with fidelity to The EFT Manual. Research has demonstrated that Clinical EFT works quickly and effectively for phobias, PTSD, anxiety, depression, pain, and many other conditions.
A current bibliography of this research is maintained at EFT Universe, as well as a full description of the APA standards. Training and certification offered by EFT Universe conforms to the standards of Clinical EFT.
