Energy Psychology: Explorations at the Interface of Energy, Cognition, Behavior, and Health, Second Edition introduces the exciting new paradigm of energy psychology and presents the latest research on the subject.

This second edition begins by tracing the roots of energy psychology and contrasting them with contemporary approaches, and then explores the interface with cognition and behavior, and provides instruction in treatment applications. Drawing on more than 35 years of clinical experience, the author investigates the body's energy patterns, focusing on the relevance of acupuncture, homeopathy, prayer, and applied kinesiology to energy therapy. This new edition features expanded sections on scientific underpinnings, clinical research, manual muscle testing, and related energy psychology approaches.


"While there are many approaches that attempt to help people change, energy psychology is among the most efficient and thorough. With this second edition of Energy Psychology, Dr. Fred Gallo significantly and delightfully expands his earlier work. Of enormous value to those of us who are passionate about positive change and personal power, here is an in depth guide to understanding, research, techniques, and more."

- Anthony Robbins, Author of Awaken the Giant Within

"This is the clearest and most comprehensive introduction to the field of energy psychology written by one of the major contributors to this field. It is extremely well written and locates energy psychology clearly within the fields of science and psychotherapy. It is a must read for anyone interested in this new and exciting approach to psychology and psychotherapy."

- Vann S. Joines, Ph.D., Author of TA Today and Personality Adaptations

"This is the second edition of a book that literally started the field of energy psychology. Retaining the critical foundational elements of the first edition, the updates help the reader see how far the field has come in only five years. This is a must-read textbook for the practitioner inside and outside the field."

- Charles R. Figley, Ph.D., Florida State University, Tallahassee
