Roger Callahan Founder Tapping

During the pre-conference Research day, Howard and Phyll Robson presented the TFT Foundation’s Uganda PTSD study. It was well received. They also met with other TFT researchers and some professionals involved in possible further studies and funding to continue their work in Uganda.

Suzanne Connolly received ACEP’s Harvey Baker Research Award

Also, a huge CONGRATULATIONS! to Suzanne Connolly as she received ACEP’s Harvey Baker Research Award for outstanding contribution to the field of Energy Psychology. The TFT Foundation, USA, is so proud to have her on their board and leading their Trauma Relief committee as well as leading their research in the field.

David Feinstein paid tribute to Roger in his excellent presentation (see photos). We all send our thoughts and blessings to him as he is healing from a recent surgery.

Suzanne Connolly reported, “Bob Pasahow did a stellar job presenting his workshop -Optimizing Psychotherapy Results: The Synergy of Integrating TFT and EFT. It was well attended and extremely well received.

Caroline Sakai also presented a training – EP with Trauma, Homelessness and Compassion Fatigue – that drew a concentration of EP practitioners concerned with delivering TFT or other EP techniques to the underserved.”

One of the other attendees, Christina Mayhew, TFT-Adv. says,

“I just came back from the ACEP conference in Reston, VA this weekend and I am so excited to see so many of the various modalities incorporating ‘TFT tapping’ into their work and the various outstanding speakers who gave credit to Roger for his pioneering work in energy psychology.

It is really hard to wrap my head around the awesomeness of this truly remarkable and miraculous technique which is so simplistic yet powerful beyond the belief sometimes. There are so many ways that TFT can be used to facilitate healing in the mind, body and spirit. I know that Roger’s work will continue to grow in its foundational roots around the world and with the scientific research being conducted, TFT will become a widely accepted practice in and outside our medical communities.

Yesterday afternoon we gathered as many TFT practitioners as we could find to meet so we could connect and talk about how we are utilizing our skills, what can we do to get TFT out in the communities more and into the military to work with our service men and women. We all had a sense of pride and joy knowing we are a blessed and elite group who have been taught an awesome technique to share with our family and the world.

I feel we are truly blessed to know Roger and Joanne and extremely grateful for continuing to give so much of themselves to humanity around the world. You have touched and transformed so many lives over the years. I’m so glad that the two of you are able to see how the seed of ‘TFT’, planted so many years ago, has sprouted roots across the globe and changing one life at a time.

Thank you and God Bless you! You are Angels on Earth!!”

Thank you to those who represented the rest of us there and in the field of Energy Psychology. Our growing TFT community is becoming, a stronger and more integrated part of the larger EP community.

The ACEP Conference will be held in Phoenix AZ next June at a Native American owned luxury Hotel. We encourage all TFT practitioners to come join in the camaraderie and fun enjoyed at the ACEP Conference this year.

Robson-Sakai-Feinstein-Webster-Connolly

The TFT Foundation’s teams, USA and UK, have just returned safely from a very rewarding and successful trip to Uganda.  They trained local Ugandans to heal trauma, fear, grief and other sufferings, as well as helped many Ugandans directly.

When you do these missions, it is heartwarming to receive a letter from our host, Fr. Peter, thanking us and sharing the many healings they are already experiencing.

Here is an excerpt of his letter.

JOANNE CALLAHAN,
PRESIDENT TFT FOUNDATION
USA

Dear Joanne,

I greet you and Dr. Callahan so much in the name of Jesus. I am very grateful to you and the foundation for sending us such a wonderful team of five people. They were very excellent. They did not only have a Mastery of the content and matter of TFT, but they also showed us a lot of love, concern and care. They were able to integrate with us very well. It was very easy for people to ask them questions, and the responses were perfect and out of love.

Everything, the training of catechists and the PTSD study went on perfectly. You really sent us excellent people. Our prayer and request is that, they should be the very people to come to Uganda next time. We already miss them so much. I am really very grateful. We did not have a single problem with any of them at all. Thanks a lot.

The catechists who were trained mastered the TFT Algorithm level and have already started treating people with very good results.

Many people were healed during the stay of the team you sent us in Uganda. The catechists were getting amazed and surprised at the very many healings. I am so much impressed, and the bishop is so much impressed. I will promote TFT till I die, and I thank God for revealing TFT to you and Dr. Callahan. May God bless you abundantly.

We have plans that if possible on your part, there could be a follow up next year of the trained catechists and the PTSD study, and the same persons are followed up. We are planning a National training of TFT within two years if you and the bishop allow us.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Greetings to Dr. Callahan  I remain yours in Christ,

Fr.Peter Mubunga Basaliza

Also, notice he has invited us back next year for a follow up to the study and further training for local communities.  This work further validated our model for large scale trauma relief and has helped reduce the suffering of many Ugandans.

Thought Field Therapy Rwanda

The ATFT Foundation funded 2008 PTSD study “Brief trauma intervention with Rwanda genocide survivors using Thought Field Therapy” has just come out in peer reviewed International Journal of Emergency Mental Health. The study’s two-year follow-up will be submitted for publication at a later date.

This study was the first of the ATFT Foundation’s PTSD studies, demonstrating an effective model for large-scale trauma relief. In 2009 a second study with this same model was completed and will be submitted for publication soon. It included a one-year follow-up and will also be submitted for publication.

The TFT (formerly ATFT) Foundation will be purchasing reprints. These reprints will be available from the foundation through Joanne@TFTFoundation.org .

Rwandan genocide survivors, using Thought Field Therapy.
International Journal of Emergency Mental Health, 13 (3), 161-172.

The third study, demonstrating this same model for large-scale trauma relief will be completed in Uganda in June of this year. Suzanne Connolly received a grant from ACEP (Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology) as seed money for this year’s study. The remaining funding will be provided from the three organizations providing the team: TFT Foundation, (USA), ATFT Foundation UK, and the Mats Uldal Humanitarian Foundation (Norway).

Our join objectives for these studies are:

1. To continue developing and scientifically validating a model in which local community leaders can be trained to treat community members in the aftermath of large- scale disasters, especially in regions where trained professionals are scarce.

2. To relieve the distress of those suffering from trauma and promote Post Traumatic Growth (PTG).

The TFT Foundation is in need of support to continue these studies and provide much needed trauma relief. To see further details about the previous studies and projects or to contribute to our efforts, go to www.TFTFoundation.org
