A simplified version of the SUE Scale/Energy Chart for use in MODERN Stress Management MSM has been created in 2015, known as "The Pyramid Model" (Hartmann, 2015), specifically designed to replace the outdated Hebbian Model based on the 1908 Yerkes-Hobson "Law of Arousal" which drives deeper into stress and forms the basis of all existing stress management programs.
Welcome to the SUE Scale - Live Life At +10!
The SUE Scale (Subjective Units of Experience, from Events Psychology, Hartmann 2009) is an instrument designed to measure the level of energy flow through the energy body from -10 to +10. It replaces the SUD Scale (Subjective Units of Distress, Wolpe 1969) as a measure to express how a person is feeling/what they are experiencing and represents a paradigm shift in the treatment of stress and emotional disturbances.
The SUE Scale is a device to measure emotions, but can also be used to recognise state dependent disturbances in its objective form, The Energy Body Stress Chart, to allow practitioners to make an independent assessment, but also to allow the client to more accurately assess their emotions and stress responses.
The SUE Scale can be used to measure the evolution of experience throughout a treatment process. The SUE Scale is used in modern energy work, such as Energy EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), EMO Energy In Motion, Events Psychology etc. It can also be used as a replacement of the SUD scale in conventional therapy, psychology and counselling to allow for treatment plans which focus on POSITIVE outcomes and emotions, rather than the absence of emotions.
The SUE Scale & The Energy Body Stress Chart are exclusive to the Guild of Energists (About GoE). For usage permission and to find practitioners, events & trainers who use the modern SUE Scale instead of the old SUD scale go to GoE.ac/map
A great and simple introduction to the concepts behind the SUE Scale - and why it is so important to stop focusing exclusively on negative emotions to gain the bigger picture on how humans work.
The basic premise that emotions are feedback devices on the conditions in the energy body, and that in order to understand emotions, it is of the essence to factor in both positive as well as negative emotions, unlocks a completely new understanding of human behaviour and state.
The SUE Scale is used to measure the subjective experience of any person, but the energy body stress chart gives an objective assessment of the functioning of firstly the energy body, but then the knock on effect on the entirety of the mind body system as states change, behaviours change, values, attitudes and beliefs change, physiological state changes, thought changes.
You are probably all aware of the amazing SUE scale of Silvia Hartman, now this scale is available for your android phone. free of charge, just request the unlock code after you have installed it. It gives the client immediate feedback on their progress during the session. To download the app, follow the link.
Meet the SUE Scale in this short excerpt from an introduction to Energy EFT with Silvia Hartmann.
Adding the missing positive wing to the SUD scale in order to form the SUE Scale is a very simple thing - yet it denotes a paradigm shift in how we think about emotion, and in the end, human existence. It has tremendous repercussions and represents a true "game changer" - and not just in psychology.
The SUE Scale measures the subjective (intrapersonal) experience from -10 to +10 and gives client and practitioner a way to make their way towards the THRESHOLD SHIFT - the EVENT of healing, learning, change or evolution - directly and at speed.
The precursor for the SUE Scale was the EI Scale (Emotional Intensity Scale)(Hartmann, Energetic Relationships Paper, 2000). This was based on finding that a scale that only shows negative emotions but not positive emotions wasn't enough in order to work successfully with emotions. In order to allow a client to accurately express their feelings towards another person (or construct, animal, object, entity, existence etc.) it is necessary to address positive as well as negative emotions.
