APA Approves ACEP to Provide CE Credits for Psychologists
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.
What this means: This means that psychologists can now get CE credit for Energy Psychology from ACEP. That is the only thing we know for sure.
Does it mean that other APA approved providers can now offer CE credit for Energy Psychology courses? The short answer is yes, with a few caveats. Click here to read our longer answer.
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 hold out 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.
