ACEP Committee Corner:
An Update from the ACEP Communications Committee
While many aspects of ACEP communications (including our monthly e-newsletter, Facebook profile, our blog and special announcements to members) are handled by our talented and amazing staff in the office, the Communications Committee manages other vital aspects of our mandate to "get the word out” to our members, the media and the general pubic. Highlights of our progress to date include:
- Our quarterly Energy Field Review email distribution list has grown to 7,500. This expanded readership offers greater opportunities to promote ACEP events and trainings and to give advertisers a broader audience.
- The formation of a Media Response Team with the directive to enhance awareness of ACEP and energy psychology (EP) within the fields of psychology and allied helping professionals and the public at large.
- The committee initiates correspondence and responds to articles that reference the emerging field of energy healing, complimentary and alternative healing modalities and current EP research.
- We are currently forming an Editorial Review Team to evaluate our current author guidelines and to evaluate articles submitted for publication in the Energy Field with the intention to enhance the quality and quantity of enlightening and educational articles.*
- Video excerpts from interviews conducted with attendees at the 2012 ACEP conference are featured on the ACEP home page. The videos serve as a welcoming introduction to ACEP and EP for visitors to our website.

Free Training in Human Subjects Research will Expire in 30 Days
The CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) offers online training for researchers, grad students and interested colleagues in the following areas:
The training module on Human Subjects Research (HSR) is required for research in psychology on human subjects. ACEP has been paying for these services for the last several years so it has been FREE for ACEP members. In reviewing the usage for the last year, however, it has come to light that not enough members are taking advantage of this offering to make it cost effective for ACEP to continue paying for the service. If you are interested in the training, it will remain FREE for ACEP members through September 19, 2013.
If interested in this training, see details: www.citiprogram.com, and then contact:
Dr. Melinda Connor: email@example.com

Hello from Headquarters: What's Happening at the ACEP Office?
We are aiming for the way of Wu Wei here at headquarters -- especially since being thrown into a little bit of limbo (laced with obstacles and detours) with our impending web migration. This is a whale of a project that we hope to dive into fully in the coming months so that we have full capacity (and an appropriate web platform) for 2014 Conference preparations starting this winter. Send good vibes to our web host company as they seem to be in a chaotic, understaffed tizzy.
2013 Conference Audio and Video - Order Now!
If you didn't pre-order the conference audio or keynote DVDs, they're now available for purchasing online. The whole conference is available in mp3 format for $199 and/or you can purchase all 5 keynotes on DVD for $125. CLICK HERE to peruse and purchase.

Congratulations to our new DCEP Certified Practitioners! We are so pleased to have Jennifer Krumm and Carol Phelps join our community of DCEP Practitioners. Congratulations on your hard work and dedication to this transformative field.
Some of you may be aware that Wikipedia appears to have a dedicated cadre (cabal?) of editors who, under the guise of promoting ‘objectivity’ have published negative articles about EFT, TFT and other CAM modalities on Wikipedia.
We are in the process of researching wiki rules and challenging the wiki skeptics. This will require a team effort over several months. We already have a small dedicated group being focalized by Vicki Allen and Jeff Tyson.
If you have energy/interest for this issue, please join us! (Take a look at the wiki entry for Emotional Freedom Techniques and its Talk Page.)
To join us in these efforts, please contact:
Vicki Allen: email@example.com and Jeff Tyson: firstname.lastname@example.org

We'd love to highlight member EP news on a monthly basis. So, if you have something to share, please send your submission for consideration to Emily Snider by the 20th of the month prior to publication at email@example.com.

Collective Healing: The Energy of Kindness
For all of the progressiveness the NW is known for we, have had several incidents occur for a new professional family in town that have stunned many. Dau and her husband and five children moved to Salem, OR from Boston for Dau's new job in Human Resources at our local hospital.
They are biracial and immediately were not served at restaurants repeatedly, bullied at a bowling alley, etc. They ignored these incidents at first as individual ignorance rather than community hate. They found a church community and an activist community and supportive schools for their children. Then one day Dau came into her work to find a bullet on her desk with "leave N___ or die" on her office wall, in the hospital. Dau describes the change that came over her that day. She knew clearly that even in her 40-something generation in 2012 her life could be taken because of the color of her skin. Their first instinct was to leave. Instead, authorities took over the investigation, and she and her family got an outpouring of love and support from her co-workers and the greater Salem community. Some of us wrote her a poster size card that now hangs on the wall where the hate message has been erased. And finally she says, "Because we have been so blessed, we practice and teach our children to practice kindness. If we spread kindness then these incidents will cease to exist."
I am passing this on to all of my ACEP friends this month. Strike your favorite energetic pose and move into that place of kindness and send it to all of the places in your body, mind, family and community that could use an extra dose of kindness.
