Energy Tapping for Trauma (eBook)
Psychologist Fred Gallo, a leader in the emerging field of energy psychology, offers techniques for tapping into the body’s energy system and its influence on emotions and cognition to cope with acute trauma and post-traumatic stress.
Energy psychology is a scientifically validated body of research and core set of treatment techniques that conceptualizes thoughts, feelings, emotions, and other psychological phenomena as manifestations of energy working though the system of the human body. If some psychological phenomenon is causing pain, distress, or a lack of function to an individual, the somatic techniques of energy psychology work to disrupt the flow of energy causing that phenomenon. One of the more common techniques in the energy psychology repertoire is called energy tapping, a practice, similar to acupressure, that involves manipulating and tapping certain points along the body’s energy meridians to influence psychological events. In this new book, author Fred Gallo applies energy psychology techniques specifically to recovering from acute trauma and post-traumatic stress symptoms. Some techniques in this book are adapted from Energy Tapping by Fred Gallo and Harry Vincenzi.
Energy Tapping for Trauma offers a concise overview of how trauma affects us and why certain aspects of traumatic experience can linger as post-traumatic stress. The book adapts energy psychology techniques into simple, effective strategies for ‘short-circuiting’ the emotional problems associated with trauma. Throughout, the book advocates for a balanced and sensible ‘whole-person’ approach to dealing with and recovering from a traumatic event.
