Congressional Hearings for EFT

By

Even with the great partisan divide, EFT is coming to Washington, DC. Both Republican and Democratic Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate are showing a lot of interest in getting EFT used as standard practice for mental health in government facilities—including the VA. Dan Lungren (R, California 3rd District) who serves on several influential committees including the House Homeland Security Committee called a round table hearing on EFT in the treatment of PTSD. Dawson Church wrote an article for the EFTuniverse.com newsletter describing the event in detail.

They actually got representatives of about agencies and congressional offices there to listen to the presentations which included vets who had recovered from PTSD using EFT. The mother of veteran Carlin Sloian, Delores Hall, described how hopeless Carlin’s PTSD symptoms had seemed until they found EFT.  Unfortunately, despite an invitation from Representative Lungren’s office, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs did not send a representative. Eric Shinseki, Secretary of State for Veterans Affairs, and Col Robert Saum, commanding officer of the Defense Center for Excellence in Mental Health (DCoE).Shinseki’s office are on record stating that EFT is not on the list of approved therapies at the VA and no circumstances were possible in which his department could contemplate using it.  It’s hard for these folks to understand how Energy Psychology, especially EFT, can help service members who are sometimes crippled by PTSD. My next post will share with you Dawson Church’s vision for EFT with our Vets.
