Summary Of Issues And Conclusions

In summary, there is a rapidly increasing number of therapies and it is suggested that they share a number of common factors or basic underlying principles. One of the puzzles that has arisen from the vast amount of psychotherapy outcome research is the general lack of differential effectiveness of treatments despite their technical diversity. As discussed above, one of the most dramatic examples of this effect is the NIMH multimillion dollar production in which the least 'active' of all the treatments, the placebo plus clinical management condition, performed as well as the other conditions overall. Results such as these point to the operation of powerful common factors and individual therapist effects. Nevertheless, we hope that the following chapters will illustrate that a conclusion that all therapies are equal for all problems is a misinterpretation of the data. As evidence-based research moves beyond the outcome question and begins to examine therapy process and predictors of outcome using sophisticated multivariate statistical techniques, then the evidence base will begin to reflect the sophistication of clinical expertise.

Exploring EFT

Exploring EFT

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It works to free the user of both physical and emotional pain and relieve chronic conditions by healing the physical responses our bodies make after we've been hurt or experienced pain. While some people do not carry the effects of these experiences, others have bodies that hold onto these memories, which affect the way the body works. Because it is a free and fast technique, even if you are not one hundred percent committed to whether it works or not, it is still worth giving it a shot and seeing if there is any improvement.
