TC 310 – Trauma and TFT

TC 310 – Trauma and TFT

In this episode of the Transformation Cafe podcast, host Robin Masiewicz and co-host Amy Frost interview Suzanne Connolly and Kristin Miller about TFT – Thought Field Therapy – as a treatment for Post Traumatic Stress.

TFT was developed by Roger Callahan, Ph.D. It involves tapping on acupuncture meridians in a specific sequence while a person is thinking of a traumatic event or a specific problem. Research has shown that it can be a very effective treatment for individuals with PTS.

PTSD

PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, in the general world population, is a significant public health problem. At the global level it’s estimated that the treatment of PTSD accounts for about 4% of the global burden of disease. 10 % of women, and 5 % of men worldwide, are suffering from post-traumatic stress. According to the World Health Organization, mental illness is predicted to be the second largest cause of death and disability in populations around the world by 2020, second only to heart disease.

Suzanne and Kristin will be working with Amy on a exciting new study to treat veterans in Las Vegas. The project is called the Veteran to Veteran Healing Project. Not only will Suzanne, Kristin, and their team be able to treat veterans directly, but their patients will also be taught how to perform TFT for themselves, and how to work with their peers.
