Up until now, the vast majority of therapists, counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, ministers, monks, priests, coaches have been relying on psychology techniques/approaches such as Rational Emotive Therapy/REBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy/CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy/DBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy/ACT, Positive Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, 12 Steps, even religious teachings such as Buddhism and Christianity to heal people.  ECT uses some of the same teachings/techniques as all of the above approaches (along with my own research and findings) but condenses the process into eight steps. ”
