2022 AIT Research – Free Webinar (June 4, 2022)
For AIT Therapists and Practitioners.

 

ACEP is launching a research project, the first of its kind, to explore the effectiveness of a range of energy psychology approaches. AIT is one of the treatment interventions included in this study.

AITI Research Committee will be having a live webinar to offer training on how to complete these surveys on June 4th 2022, and we are applying for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for this training.

MORE NFORMATION ABOUT THE ACEP RESEARCH

ACEP is launching a research project, the first of its kind, to explore the effectiveness of a range of energy psychology approaches. AIT is one of the treatment interventions included in this study. It went live in late February of 2022. ACEP is partnering with Bond University in this project; Peta Stapleton and Robert Schwarz will be the principal investigators.

They are using a web-based strategy that will allow them to collect data from practitioners “in the wild.” This is the easiest way for AIT practitioners to participate in clinical research that can show how effective this treatment intervention is!

They want AIT practitioners to continue to do what they do normally. All they are doing is adding measures pre, during, post and follow up.

As a practitioner you can join the project. Here’s what’s involved.

You will need to define a presenting complaint for each client, for example: anxiety, depression, attachment trauma, etc.

You can use the number of sessions you normally use. For the purposes of the study there should be some time limit – rather than open- ended treatment for years. A practitioner might have 5 people in the study working on different issues for different time periods.

It’s important that practitioners use one modality for the bulk of treatment. Meaning that a good client for this study will be only using AIT with you.

 The goal of AITI is to get a minimum of 30 subjects per approach to have enough statistical power. They will be collecting data for at least one year.

There are some underlying questions that they looking to solve from this study. That said, depending on how many people get involved, the study may be able to explore other research questions. For instance, we can look at the effectiveness of a specific approach for treating x, y or z.

You can read about it on the website  https://ep-research.com/

Steps you need to take to be part of the study:

  1. Read through everything on the website.

  2. Watch the training video on the website.

  3. Fill out the practitioner survey. (mandatory)

  4. Everything is in English. At this point, we cannot translate to any other language.

  5. Fill out a client survey yourself so you know what’s involved so you can answer questions for your clients. (On the form, mark it that you are a practitioner and you are just testing).

Over the next year, you’ll be able to enroll as many clients as you wish in the study (as long as you’re doing only a single intervention).

If you have any questions, first make sure that you read the website thoroughly and watch the video. If you still have questions you can contact Peta Stapleton at pstaplet@bond.edu.au
