But let’s face it. PET is not for everyone, and nor is this manual. As we say right at the beginning:
If you suffer from an absence of a sense of humour, an excess of politically-correct thinking, or can only relate to animals, this book is not for you.
On the other hand, if you understand warmth and relationships and want more of the good stuff; if you recognise that well-used humour can be life changing and healing; if you want to learn powerful techniques to create change more rapidly and release pain with less suffering, then this PET and this book is made for you.
PET (Provocative Energy Techniques) combines the meridian point stimulation—also known as “tapping”—of Energy Psychology with humorous, paradoxical and communicational elements drawn from Provocative Therapy. It is an exciting integration of two innovative therapeutic modalities.
PET further incorporates techniques from the work of Milton Erickson, from Brief Strategic Therapy and Paradoxical Therapy. It is solidly based on heartfelt acceptance (which is understood in Energy Psychology more in terms of energy transmission from practitioner to client than intellectual process).
Provocative Energy Techniques (PET) – as with Provocative Therapy – is first and foremost a way of being in relationship with another person – which requires a strong heart connection. This is actually part of the healing. The nature of the communication is like the affectionate banter between very close friends.
