Very recently NICE published the PTSD guideline recommending further research into EFT. Now TEDx has released a clear and useful introduction and summary of progress to date by Dr Peta Stapleton, Clinical Psychologist and Researcher at Bond University
Here Peta proposes that Therapy is Facing a Revolution – A 4th wave of approaches coming through disrupting the traditional therapy space – and it might be a tidal wave. EFT / Tapping as a body based or somatic approach now has over 130 research trials.
It’s time to pay attention to the outcomes. Enjoy the watch and share far and wide everyone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Vu0Tibt1bQ

For the first time in world history a government agency has officially recommended EFT as worthy of government research funds for trauma/PTSD.
Earlier this year AAMET, ACEP, EFT-Universe and EFT researcher Dr David Feinstein carried out a first time collaboration that brought about the robust and comprehensive stakeholder response that AAMET submitted to NICE (the UK government body responsible for determining medical and psychological treatments recommended for use in the UK NHS) via the consultation process in July 2018 for their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment guidance review.
EFT is now mentioned in the final NICE PTSD Guideline (NG116) issued on 5 December 2018, on page 25 under “Other recommendations for research”. You can download the Guideline here
What this means
The acknowledgment if EFT in this UK government guideline, signifies an initial and promising evidence base, worthy of government-funded further research
and official government research funding.
This is a real vindication of all the hard work by EFT researchers worldwide; well designed studies with rigorous methodologies are more important than ever before.
The AAMET Research Symposium is upcoming on 19th February 2019!
