I have been a member of ACEP since 2008 and continue to appreciate the energy of this group dedicated to finding ways to alleviate the suffering of self and others. I am a mental health professional who is professionally supported and challenged by ongoing continuing education and committee work of this group that is involved in humanitarian efforts in US and around the globe. ACEP's dedication to research in energy psychology moves us all forward.

As professional in mental health I learned a lot through the Acep about EP. I think this kind of tools or models are very important to share. I used them in my private practice but also in humanitarian action as Haïti in training of psychologists to beter answer to PTSD and to help the population...

I had the possibility to help a mother with three kids and severe disease very quickly. I could stabilize her and she was able to find the energy to fight against the disease... The psychologist in charge in the hospital of Port au Prince was amazed of the results and by the fact that these results maintained in the duration

As a disenfranchised psychiatric psychotherapist, I've found a home in ACEP. I trained when psychiatry was all psychotherapy and refused the pressures to switch to only prescribing medications.This was difficult to do in the context of shortened contact times associated with only writing prescriptions. Energy Psychology has given me the tools to provide brief, potent therapy. I now practice in Canada as a wholistic psychothrerapist using Energy Psychology. ACEP is the professional American hub for information, training, conferences and innovations in these new methods. i am pleased and honored to serve on ACEP's Advisory Board, and to attend their annual meeting, which is one of the highlights of my year.

This is a very important group that serves many purposes - public education, professional training, networking, and advocacy for an innovative therapy that is often misunderstood and overlooked. The resources on the website are a great public service and the annual meetings are a great chance for like-minded people to connect. I've been a member for over 10 years, and really value this group.

I continue to work with ACEP because it is the only non-profit of its kind promoting professional and ethical standards and increasing public awareness of this powerful healing field of energy psychology. The mission of the organization is to help alleviate suffering throughout the world through the tools of energy psychology, and this is greatly needed at this time.

ACEP stands out as a leader in the emerging field of energy psychology in that it serves to raise professional standards and training in these techniques that are truly life changing. ACEP is responsible for the 2012 watershed APA decision to offer CE for psychologists studying energy psychology. This is a game changer (the end of a 15 year policy that prevented offering CE to psychologists)!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase fundraising and humanitarian outreach capacities.

ACEP is an amazing resource for both professionals seeking training in Energy Psychology approaches (EFT, TAT, CEP, TFT, etc.) and for clients seeking help from well-trained professionals. The organization is also doing wonderful work promoting and supporting research in this emerging field of mental health care.

I am a licensed psychologist and have been a member of ACEP for six years. When I first "discovered" Energy Psychology as a new approach that integrated various modalities with which I was already familiar into highly effective techniques, I also discovered ACEP as a home for like-minded people and practitioners. It didn't take long to discover that it was a lot more than a physical (at the conference) or virtual (online) gathering place; it is an Association in the best sense of the term; a very dynamic gathering of committed, involved and active people, dedicated to the development of the field, to sharing and discovering amongst themselves, and to bringing the best of what they can offer to the world. ACEP has a collective energy fueled by motivated individuals with a commitment to developing an ethical and professional body of practitioners, solid research that advances the field, a vibrant and inclusive organization, and relevance in the world by creating programs applying these techniques to the benefit of the public here and abroad. That is what has motivated me to volunteer for the past three years.

I have been a member of ACEP for about 10 years, a Board Member at Large for almost 2 years and am active on three committees so I have seen and been part of its principled evolvement and growth.

ACEP is a steward of higher good. It is committed to expanding the reach of and promoting the ethical use of Energy Psychology methods through its certification courses. It is a leader in conducting and supporting research on the efficacy of Energy Psychology methods and its humanitarian efforts are ever expanding.

ACEP is both a tremendous source of and resource for spiritual, professional, and personal growth. I am proud to be intimately associated with the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology.

I have been involved with many organizations over the past 50 years and none of them have provided me with as many opportunities for professional and personal growth as ACEP has. I have been a member for seven years now and will continue to be as long as I can put one foot in front of the other.The conferences always present new perspectives and opportunities for skill refinement. It's a pleasure to be around upbeat, ethical and bright people such as these.
Thank you, ACEP.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ACEP is responsible for much of the research going on in the field of Energy Psychology either through direct sponsorship or by supporting others in other ways. It would be very helpful if they could increase financial support to those who are capable of high quality research. This would provide increased substance for the professionals who use it and increased benefit to the client. I wish I could tell them how to raise the money to accomplish that.

For me, what makes for a great non profit organization is that it truly serves others. This is ACEP's mission as the leading voice in energy psychology - a new field of psychotherapy that combines Eastern energy methods with Western psychotherapy principles. The methods are fast and efficient, almost defying what is currently known in the healing world especially for PTSD, anxiety and limiting beliefs. As expected, what a new field needs is research to support the clinical results we are seeing, humanitarian support to serve the millions suffering in the world, and certification to provide a standard of care. ACEP is the home for all of this, and provides it with a very minimal amount of overhead costs. I am a member since it's inception and also a past president, so I know first hand of the work.

I've been a member of ACEP since its inception in 1999, a member of the board since 2007 and am currently proud to be President-Elect of this fine organization. ACEP's mission is to support the growth of energy psychology throughout the world. Energy psychology consists of a family of techniques that impact the various energy systems of the body to help shift how we feel, think or behave. It's a gentle approach that is often highly successful. More information can be found at www.energypsych.org

I have been a member of ACEP for more than 15 years and have served as President of this marvelous organization. Energy Psychology enables people to heal psychological problems much more rapidly than any other method. ACEP is now devoting time to doing the research that will prove this to the world.

By providing trainings and conferences ACEP encourages professionals to continue to grow in this field, to share information that helps us help those we treat. This allows both professionals as well as lay people from all over the world to share with each other with generosity and caring.

I have been a member of ACEP for 14 years and have served on the board and as President. Professionally, ACEP has been my lifeline to others all over the world interested in this amazing new field since there are very few professionals in my geographical area that are using these wonderful methods.

ACEP also offers training by experts in various Energy Psychology techniques. I look forward to attending the yearly conference so I can meet my colleagues in person, make new friends, share my own work, and continue to learn and upgrade my skills. There is an atmosphere of warmth, and generosity that I have never experienced in other professional organizations.

ACEP has been a professional god-send for me because I have been able to meet people from all over the world who are also interested in this relatively new field of Energy Psychology. ACEP provides education, incentives to do research, and a membership of fascinating and generous colleagues. I feel honored to have worked on the Board and as President of ACEP. All of us share a passion for healing others rapidly and permanently with these amazing modalities.
