Nicosia, G. (2008) World Trade Center Tower 2 Survivor: EP Treatment of Long-term PTSD:  A case study. Presented at the ACEP Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology conference, Baltimore, May.

Gregory J. Nicosia, PhD


In this case study a survivor of the Twin Towers collapse of 9/11/01 is treated for prolonged complex PTSD after several years of self-imposed seclusion.  Effects of a single session of EFT assessed immediately after treatment demonstrated an elimination of clinically significant scores on the Traumatic Symptom Inventory compared to two pre-treatment assessments.  Similar reductions in 4 of 7 subscales of the Personality Assessment Inventory were also evidenced.  Twelve treatment sessions over 8 weeks concluded treatment with nearly complete symptom remediation and return to work.  A 60 day follow-up PAI testing showed only one clinically elevated scale.
