Abstract

 

Stress reactions after a road accident may include the diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety disorders, as well as other psychiatric conditions such as prolonged grief reactions, somatisation and substance abuse. This paper reviews the approach, considers the viability and offers a framework for applying energy psychology in treating road accident trauma patients. Energy psychologies have been dubbed "power therapies" because they work so quickly compared to the traditional talk therapy. This appears to be due in part because they target the more primitive parts of the brain. These would include the Limbic system, the Medulla Oblongata and the Enkephalin system, which is in every cell of the body.

 

Key words: Energy psychology, road accident, trauma, therapy.
