ACEP Members write response to erroneous article in Social Work Journal

An article last November in the journal Research on Social Work Practice presented Energy Psychology and its "energy meridian techniques" as falling within pseudoscience, having no research support, and no credible theory backing it. Besides ignoring substantial evidence to the contrary on all three assertions, the paper goes on to suggest that the proponents of EP lack critical thinking ability, promote erroneous health beliefs, and should be made to undergo additional training and education to help them overcome their "affinity toward controversial therapies.”  Along the way, the authors also level personal attacks against leaders within EP.

Four practitioners and researchers in the EP community have written a powerful rebuttal that decimates the arguments presented in the paper:  Eric Leskowitz, MD (Harvard Medical School), Mary Sise, LCSW (former ACEP President), Phyllis Stein, PhD (Washington University School of Medicine), and Anthony Tranguch, MD, PhD (Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons).
