Dean J. Hugie *
Director of Research – ACEP Canada, Registered Psychologist, SIAST, Wascana Campus


Neuroscience is calling for more research to further our understanding of brain trauma and rehabilitation. Further, Dr. Steven Cramer, Department of Neurology and Anatomy and Neurobiology, University of California while writing on behalf of the 2009 task force notes," major advances in the understanding of neuroplasticity haveto date, yielded few established interventions". The purpose of this paper is two- fold: 1) to present an overview of the energy model as outlined within energy psychology and 2) to discuss trauma, neuroplasticity and chronic trauma encephalopathy from the perspective of an emerging evidenced based paradigm, the energy model.
