Clinical EFT as an Evidence-Based Practice for the Treatment of Psychological and Physiological Conditions  [PDF]
Dawson Church
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.48092

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has moved in the past two decades from a fringe therapy to widespread professional acceptance. This paper defines Clinical EFT, the method validated in many research studies, and shows it to be an “evidence-based” practice. It describes standards by which therapies may be evaluated, such as those of the American Psychological Association (APA) Division 12 Task Force, and reviews the studies showing that Clinical EFT meets these criteria. Several research domains are discussed, summarizing studies of: 1) psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); 2) physiological problems such as pain and autoimmune conditions; 3) professional and sports performance; and 4) the physiological mechanisms of action of Clinical EFT. The paper lists the conclusions that may be drawn from this body of evidence, which includes 23 randomized controlled trials and 17 within-subjects studies. The three essential ingredients of Clinical EFT are described: exposure, cognitive shift, and acupressure. The latter is shown to be an essential ingredient in EFT’s efficacy, and not merely a placebo. New evidence from emerging fields such as epigenetics, neural plasticity, psychoneuroimmunology, and evolutionary biology confirms the central link between emotion and physiology, and points to somatic stimulation as the element common to emerging psychotherapeutic methods. The paper outlines the next steps in EFT research, such as smartphone-based data gathering, large-scale group therapy, and the use of biomarkers. It concludes that Clinical EFT is a stable and mature method with an extensive evidence base. These characteristics have led to growing acceptance in primary care settings as a safe, rapid, reliable, and effective treatment for both psychological and medical diagnoses.

Cosmic Background Radiation Polarization Experiments
S. T. Staggs,J. O. Gundersen,S. E. Church
Physics , 1999,
Abstract: A handful of new experiments aimed at measuring the as-yet-undetected polarization of the cosmic background radiation are described, with somewhat more detail given for three experiments with which the authors are are associated.
Statistical Analysis of Different Muon-antineutrino->Electron-antineutrino Searches
E. D. Church,K. Eitel,G. B. Mills,M. Steidl
Physics , 2002, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.66.013001
Abstract: A combined statistical analysis of the experimental results of the LSND and KARMEN \numubnueb oscillation search is presented. LSND has evidence for neutrino oscillations that is not confirmed by the KARMEN experiment. This joint analysis is based on the final likelihood results for both data sets. A frequentist approach is applied to deduce confidence regions. At a combined confidence level of 36%, there is no area of oscillation parameters compatible with both experiments. For the complementary confidence of 1-0.36=64%, there are two well defined regions of oscillation parameters (sin^2(2th),Dm^2) compatible with both experiments.
Beam dynamics performances and applications of a low-energy electron-beam magnetic bunch compressor
C. R. Prokop,P. Piot,B. E. Carlsten,M. Church
Physics , 2013, DOI: 10.1016/j.nima.2013.03.068
Abstract: Many front-end applications of electron linear accelerators rely on the production of temporally-compressed bunches. The shortening of electron bunches is often realized with magnetic bunch compressors located in high-energy sections of accelerators. Magnetic compression is subject to collective effects including space charge and self interaction via coherent synchrotron radiation. In this paper we explore the application of magnetic compression to low-energy ($\sim 40$ MeV), high-charge (nC) electron bunches with low normalized transverse emittances ($< 5$ $\mu$m).
Experiment and simulations of sub-ps electron bunch train generation at Fermilab photoinjectors
Y. -E Sun,M. Church,P. Piot,C. R. Prokop
Physics , 2012,
Abstract: Recently the generation of electron bunch trains with sub-picosecond time structure has been experimentally demonstrated at the A0 photoinjector of Fermilab using a transverse-longitudinal phase-space exchange beamline. The temporal profile of the bunch train can be easily tuned to meet the requirements of the applications of modern accelerator beams. In this paper we report the A0 bunch-train experiment and explore numerically the possible extension of this technique to shorter time scales at the Fermilab SRF Accelerator Test Facility, a superconducting linear electron accelerator currently under construction in the NML building.

Substantial Upgrades to Tevatron Luminosity
Mike Church
Physics , 2001,
Abstract: Over the next 6 years the CDF and D0 collaborations have the goal of collecting 15 fb-1 of data in collider Run II. This will require a number of ambitious upgrades to the Fermilab accelerator complex, some of which have been completed, some of which are currently being commissioned, and some of which are under development but have not yet been installed. This paper describes the major accelerator upgrades required to reach this Run II luminosity goal.
Homological stability for configuration spaces of manifolds
Thomas Church
Mathematics , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s00222-011-0353-4
Abstract: Let C_n(M) be the configuration space of n distinct ordered points in M. We prove that if M is any connected orientable manifold (closed or open), the homology groups H_i(C_n(M); Q) are representation stable in the sense of [Church-Farb]. Applying this to the trivial representation, we obtain as a corollary that the unordered configuration space B_n(M) satisfies classical homological stability: for each i, H_i(B_n(M); Q) is isomorphic to H_i(B_{n+1}(M); Q) for n > i. This improves on results of McDuff, Segal, and others for open manifolds. Applied to closed manifolds, this provides natural examples where rational homological stability holds even though integral homological stability fails. To prove the main theorem, we introduce the notion of monotonicity for a sequence of S_n--representations, which is of independent interest. Monotonicity provides a new mechanism for proving representation stability using spectral sequences. The key technical point in the main theorem is that certain sequences of induced representations are monotone.
Orbits of curves under the Johnson kernel
Thomas Church
Mathematics , 2011, DOI: 10.1353/ajm.2014.0025
Abstract: This paper has two main goals. First, we give a complete, explicit, and computable solution to the problem of when two simple closed curves on a surface are equivalent under the Johnson kernel. Second, we show that the Johnson filtration and the Johnson homomorphism can be defined intrinsically on subsurfaces and prove that both are functorial under inclusions of subsurfaces. The key point is that the latter reduces the former to a finite computation, which can be carried out by hand. In particular this solves the conjugacy problem in the Johnson kernel for separating twists. Using a theorem of Putman, we compute the first Betti number of the Torelli group of a subsurface.
