While I would describe this book as "phenomenal" for those unfamiliar with but simply curious about energy psychology, it is also chock full of in-depth information that would be helpful to experienced EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) practitioners. I should say that I myself am an experienced EFT practitioner; I have been waiting for something like this book. Past EFT books have not been as well-written, or else have been sensationalized, with descriptions of one-minute wonders and miracle cures; with EFT, such things do happen all the time, but they are atypical. EFT is a wonderful modality, an incredibly useful tool that can be used by virtually anyone after ten minutes or so of instruction; likewise, it can be used elegantly, creatively, and artistically after years of experience in the hands of a studied and credentialed EFT practitioner.
What makes "The Promise of Energy Psychology" work is its credibility. Much of it is written by David Feinstein, a seasoned psychologist, in a professional, non-hyperbolic way, describing the process of EFT and energy psychology. This is, in my opinion, the best writing done to date about EFT. The forward is written by Candace Pert, who is well-respected in the scientific community. That said, this is NOT a scholarly tome, but an accessible, well-written manual for those who want to understand this emerging paradigm for emotional healing that has become wildly popular in the last ten years.
Other parts of the book was written by Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, and Donna Eden, the author of the classic book on energy medicine and Dr. Feinstein's wife. These parts also conform to the same high standards and great utility as the rest of the book.Read more ›
What I like so much are the pictures included with every technique, that will help graps the "how to" much better than a mere textual description. Invaluable. Technically, the only thing that I miss is the index at the end of the book - it was in the EM book and it has proven to be very valuable there.
The basic differences from the EM book by same authors, as I could grasp quickly: EFT (emotional freedom techniques) from Gary Craig included, pictures for each exercise (there were many pictures in EM book too, but sometimes I was confused as for the details of certain exercises, these are now thankfully included in this book), research evidence, joy circuits covered in detail (you owe them to yourself and your body!). EM book was more about energies while this one is more about personal change applications, though there is a wide intersection for sure.
Scientific validations included will definitely be important for some people. I personally don't care for it too much - my validation as with everything is whether it WORKED FOR ME after I have used it - in that respect saying I'm SATISFIED is an understatement.
There are books by authors that are good at writing. Others are experts in their field. Some others are just inventors but lack when it comes to spreading their message. Donna Eden, David Feinstein and Gary Craig are rare authors in respect of a unique trinity of skills: being gifted as teachers (authors and spreaders of the message), inventors and experts (and doers) all together.
The second half of the book expands on this information by including ways to energize and balance the body's health, immune system function, etc, by other energy techniques. Anyone who has read coauthor Donna Eden's excellent "Energy Medicine" will find themselves on familiar ground with the new material she was written here.
While written simply enough to be usable by a layperson, this book is also usable as a resource by professional therapists, as its many examples are all of various clinical cases, some quite complex, and how they were handled. Very well written, very worth while, and a bargain at the price.
