Depression and Anxiety

  • Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has been proven effective for reducing relapse rates of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) (Lilja et al., 2016).

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has also been proven effective for treatment of both MDD and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), along with several other disorders (Gratzer & Goldbloom, 2016). Since CBT requires “a major investment of resources and time” but has been proven to be effective for many disorders, certain researchers have shown interest in making CBT more accessible.

  • One such effort examined the feasibility of internet-delivered cognitive behavior therapy (IBCT), which found that ICBT can be effective in treating children and adolescents with anxiety and depressive symptoms (Vigerland et al., 2016). CBT is an effective, evidence-based treatment plans for a wide range of disorders, so making it accessible as possible should be a priority. ICBT is a crucial first step towards that goal.

EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques "Tapping" 


"There is no debate about EFT being helpful for many conditions. Many people, including myself, have amazing stories to tell about how EFT helped with stress, physical pain, phobias, test anxiety, cravings, the list goes on and on. And we CAN say that EFT is scientifically valid and that EFT meets the criteria to be considered evidence-based. Until recently, however, to be officially called evidence-based, the treatment had to have been listed in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). NREPP was a searchable online database of mental health and substance abuse interventions and was part of the US government’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Sadly, in 2018 the Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use and SAMHSA phased out the NREPP website, which had been in existence since 1997."
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an evidence-based self-help therapeutic method and over 100 studies demonstrate its efficacy. However, information about the physiological effects of EFT is limited. The current study sought to elucidate EFTs mechanisms of action across the central nervous system (CNS) by measuring heart rate variability (HRV) and heart coherence (HC); the circulatory system using resting heart rate (RHR) and blood pressure (BP); the endocrine system using cortisol, and the immune system using salivary immunoglobulin A (SigA). The second aim was to measure psychological symptoms. Participants (N = 203) were enrolled in a 4-day training workshop held in different locations. At one workshop (n = 31), participants also received comprehensive physiological testing. Posttest, significant declines were found in anxiety (−40%), depression (−35%), posttraumatic stress disorder (−32%), pain (−57%), and cravings (−74%), all P < .000. Happiness increased (+31%, P = .000) as did SigA (+113%, P = .017). Significant improvements were found in RHR (−8%, P = .001), cortisol (−37%, P < .000), systolic BP (−6%, P = .001), and diastolic BP (−8%, P < .000). Positive trends were observed for HRV and HC and gains were maintained on follow-up, indicating EFT results in positive health effects as well as increased mental well-being.According to published reports, systematic reviews of the published evidence, a meta-analysis of seven RCTs, and practitioner consensus, most cases of PTSD are remediated in ten EFT sessions or less. As a safe, efficacious, and easily learned self-help method, EFT should be offered to clients as an initial treatment option immediately after diagnosis. Group therapy involving family members may reinforce treatment effects through social support, and access to Battle Tap provides veterans and warriors with access to EFT at times and places of their own choosing. A structured evidence-based practice protocol should be widely disseminated to clinicians and institutions bearing the burden of PTSD treatment. For those patients who do not respond, appropriate medication and intensive individual psychotherapy is recommended, especially in cases of complex PTSD.
