Abstract

A randomized controlled trial of veterans with clinical levels of PTSD symptoms found significant improvements after EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). While pain, depression, and anxiety were not the targets of treatment, significant improvements in these conditions were found. Subjects (N = 59) received six sessions of EFT coaching supplementary to primary care. They were assessed using the SA-45, which measures 9 mental health symptom domains, and also has 2 general scales measuring the breadth and depth of psychological distress. Anxiety and depression both reduced significantly, as did the breadth and depth of psychological symptoms. Pain decreased significantly during the intervention period (– 41%, p < .0001). Subjects were followed at 3 and 6 months, revealing significant relationships between PTSD, depression, and anxiety at several assessment points. At follow-up, pain remained significantly lower than pretest. The results of this study are consistent with other reports showing that, as PTSD symptoms are reduced, general mental health improves, and that EFT produces long-term gains for veterans after relatively brief interventions.

Keywords: Anxiety, depression, pain, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), veterans.

:D The ONLY thing that got everything under cnotrol for me was to have the original problem addressed and fixed(dentists removed my teeth and maxilla to the point of sinking my face inwards, disfiguring me)and from taking Ativan regularly to beat the shakes and panic attacks. The tapping, the finger pulling, the rubber-bad on the wrist snapping did NOTHING. This has proven to be BS for me and for millions of others, and we rae NOT your damn guinea pigs . Go practice this crap on your raped daughters, your son who saw his friends get blown to smithereens, your wife who was gang-[censored] aulted ... THEN come tell us it works. I doubt any of the experts would willingly forgo the Ativan and FIXING THE ORIGINAL PROBLEMS! Don't focus on this baloney "treatment." It only works if the patient believes in it,they must be desperate enough to WANT to believe in it. I don't believe in it, so it does not work. What WOULD work is having my face back! Fix the problem, the the psych probs would go!
