It is with tremendous pleasure that we announce to you that ACEP has been approved by the American Psychological Association to be a provider of CE credit for psychologists and that we can provide CE credit for our programs in Energy Psychology effective Nov 11, 2012.
This has been a process that has taken over 5 years. It looks like the old adage that the third time is a charm held true. Thank you to all who poured tremendous amounts of energy into this important process.
Does it mean that other APA approved providers can now offer CE credit for Energy Psychology courses? We are not sure yet. It probably does. We will be contacting the APA for further clarification on this matter. APA approved providers themselves can also check with the APA. We will be saying more about this soon.
What this does NOT mean: It is very important to note that our APA approved provider status for our energy psychology programs does not mean that the APA has approved any EP method per se. Please do not tell people this or imply this in any way. EP and EFT is no more evidenced supported than it was on November 10, 2012.
What does this mean for the future of EP? While we’re excited about the possibilities, we don’t really know what this means for the future of EP. We think we are now potentially starting a new chapter in the acceptance of EP within the framework of more mainstream approaches. The APA has been the last holdout in accepting EP as worthy for continuing education credit for its members. We believe its prior position has slowed research and clinical use of EP. We hope this decision marks a new era of increased research and study in EP methods.
We will be providing more information about the implications of the APA’s decision over the coming days and weeks. As we are coming up on Thanksgiving in the U.S., we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your support.
