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.

International trauma expert Suzanne Connolly will be on Healing Talk Radio for a live demonstration of Thought Field Therapy in the treatment of PTSD, On Wednesday March 30th at 11AM MST.

Suzanne has healed trauma and trained trauma therapists throughout the world. She was invited to travel to Littleton Coloroado to train professionals who were treating the traumatized survivors of the Columbine High School shooting. Suzanne has also traveled to Kuwait, France and Rwanda to train community workers in trauma recovery and to directly treat victims of genocide.

Suzanne has participated in three different research studies, including the study “Treatment of PTSD in Rwandan Child Genocide Survivors Using Thought Field Therapy”, published in Winter 2010 edition of International Journal of Emergency Mental Health, 12(1), 41-50. Suzanne is also author of the book “Thought Field Therapy: Clinical Applications Integrating TFT in Psychotherapy. published in 2004.

A local client volunteer with disabling symptoms of PTSD will join the radio program and Suzanne Connolly will work live on the air with the client to resolve her problems, which include intense nightmares almost every night and severe, intrusive fears.

After over 20 years of practice and research, Thought Field Therapy continues to produce dramatic results in the resolution of brain-stem based emotional issues. Meridian-based tapping releases have been shown in studies to be the fastest of all release methods for phobias and fear issues, and can produce dramatic improvement for these problems one session.

With its precision, carefully developed algorithms and history of humanitarian use for trauma, Thought Field Therapy is the premier and original meridian-based release therapy.

This year we celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the discovery of a revolutionary form of healing, originally called Callahan Techniques and now commonly known as Thought Field Therapy (TFT). TFT was discovered and developed by California clinical psychologist, Dr. Roger Callahan.

The first person Dr. Roger Callahan treated with this method was Mary, a woman in her 40s who had a severe phobia of water. According to Mary and her relatives, she had had this phobia ever since she was an infant.

Water was so terrifying to Mary that she could not take baths in a full tub of water and was terrified every time it rained. She often had nightmares of water getting her. And, although she lived in California, she could not go to the beach, because the very sight of water caused her unbearable anxiety.

Dr. Callahan had been working with Mary using a wide variety of conventional psychotherapy techniques for a year and a half with very little progress. Even though he had tried every technique available at the time, all he had been able to do for her was get her to the point where she could sit on the edge of his swimming pool and reluctantly dangle her legs in the water. Even this filled her with anxiety. Read more
