Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy is the outcome of one psychoanalyst's encounter with the field known generically as energy psychology, which reveals how the conflicts and traumas active within the psyche are encoded as information within the body's energy system. It is inspired primarily by the remarkable and far-reaching work of Dr. Roger Callahan in his development of Thought Field Therapy. There were important figures before Dr. Callahan in the lineage-notably George Goodheart, the founder of Applied Kinesiology, who first explored muscle testing as a source of information about the body's organs and functions, and psychiatrist Dr. John Diamond, who extended this enquiry into the emotional and psychological domains--and many have built substantially on his work since. The author is compelled to the conclusion that purely talk-based forms of psychotherapy--although not without value--are simply not able to engage effectively with the realm in which the patterns of emotional distress are encoded: the area at the interface of the psyche and the soma, the body's energy field. For this reason, he encourages psychotherapists to consider the implications of TFT and the wider domain of energy psychology. He is convinced that this realm of the body and its energy is entirely congruent with--and indeed an extension of--the psychoanalysis originally developed by Freud.Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy is the outcome of one psychoanalysta#39;s encounter with the field known generically as energy psychology, which reveals how the conflicts and traumas active within the psyche are encoded as information ...
