A PERTINENT NOTE ON FACE-TO-FACE OR ONLINE EFT SESSIONS

Dr. Peta Stapleton released a study to find out whether there were any substantial differences between clients attending sessions online (Skype) or face-to-face for overweight adults.

Each program targeted food cravings, the subjective power of food, dietary restraint, body mass index, weight, somatic symptomology, anxiety, and depression.

Overall, the findings of the present study suggest that both modalities are equally efficacious in reducing overall levels of food cravings, the subjective power of food, levels of restraint, weight, and Body Mass Index, as well as, lowering rates of anxiety, depression and somatic symptoms.

There were some between groups’ differences, and the in-person group appeared to have achieved a slightly greater effect of weight loss, while the online group experienced greater effects for the treatment of somatic symptoms.
