After much initial skepticism Dr. Gruder ultimately came to so deeply value the benefits of Energy Psychology methods that in 1998 he agreed to co-found the international nonprofit Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP). He served as its first president from its inception until 2002. He later became one of the principal architects of ACEP’s Comprehensive Energy Psychology Certification Programs for both Diplomates in Comprehensive Energy Psychology (DCEPs) and Energy Health Practitioners (CEHPs — for allied health professionals). The DCEP program is eligible for American Psychological Association Continuing Education credit, as well as CE credit for all types of mental health professionals as well as nurses and acupuncturists.
Dr. Gruder’s involvement with ACEP continues to this day as a Certification program Full Trainer, Certification Consultant, and Continuing Education Provider. He has mentored Energy Psychology practitioners worldwide, and has given Energy Psychology training programs throughout North America, and in Europe and Asia, to psychotherapists, physicians, dentists, coaches and the public. He has also taught semester-long Energy Psychology courses for doctoral psychology graduate students as a Lead Faculty at the California Institute for Human Science.
Dr. Gruder is the author of the highly respected and cited Energy Psychology Desktop Companion for practitioners and developer of the highly acclaimed Energy Psychology Essentials™ training program, in addition to the much-used Energy Psychology Anywhere™ audio for helping professionals, clients of helping professionals, and self-help consumers.
