The Effects of a Thought Field Therapy Stress Reduction Protocol on the Stress and Empathy Levels of Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
In a new longitudinal randomized control study by Hadas Keppel, PhD. , a Thought Field Therapy (TFT) protocol was found to reduce general stress and increase perspective-taking in parents of children with an autism spectrum disorder. The TFT intervention was effective regardless of the existence of sub-clinical traits of autism or a current mental health diagnosis. General stress partially mediated the effect of TFT on perspective-taking.
