Dr. Pegah Seidi, presenting a talk on (Northern Iraq).
Dr. Pegah Seidi, a lecturer and researcher at Garmian University in Kurdistan, began using TFT in 2018 after taking an online training in TFT provided by Suzanne Connolly. Dr. Seidi practiced TFT on relatives and friends and recently wrote” So, I’m already writing a case study with one of my colleagues in the UNC, where I have put my experiences of more than five years of using CBT, and the benefits of TFT as a better intervention for societies experienced war and political conflicts and low-income societies.” Dr. Seidi added, “I use TFT almost every day for my clients and students, and more and more people are asking me about this method every day.” Continue reading “TFT in Kurdistan”
My client is a 30-year-old female, a housewife and cares for her children and her brother who lives with her. Her life looks like a book by Emile Zola. She is the child of two drug addicts who did not take care of her during her childhood. Her first memories are those of her father heating heroin spoons before injections.

Japan Floods occurred in the vast area and killed 126 after torrential rain and landslides in July 2018.
We offered the seminar for disaster assistance in International Pacific University, Okayama Campus with JEMDRA-HAP in Sep 15-17.
On September 15th (Sat), 17 (Mon), Japan’s torrential rain disaster support seminar, “Overcoming the Power of the Region” – seminar on how to take care of your heart after the disaster was held at ipu Pacific University. There was also a promotion for the humanitarian support program in Japan.
From experts to students, a lot of people have joined. In particular, many of the trans-Pacific University students have already participated in volunteer support for disaster support, and we believe that we have learned skills to support interpersonal aid and regions, and we believe that it will be a great power to support reconstruction.
Dr. Niki, M.D. (Chairperson of JEMDRA-HAP) and Dr. Morikawa, Ph.D. (Chairperson of JATFT) lectured the importance of mental health care and introduced the practical techniques, TFT and HRV Coherence Breathing.
The audience was doctors, nurses, teachers, counselors, public workers, students, and lay people.
The students of IPU have engaged in volunteer activities in the disaster areas and added the new skills of TFT to heal others.
We introduced TFT Foundation’s contributions to Rwanda as a good model of community recovery from tragedy.
Read below to see the continuing great work our teams are doing in Rwanda. This work and the 3 published studies from our work there are what contributed to TFT becoming recognized as Evidenced Based with SAMSHA and NREPP. This work in Rwanda not only has treated over 20,000 individuals but facilitated the healing of a country while also helping us get TFT recognized here in the USA. We desperately need your help with funds for the remaining months of the mourning period. We need an additional $1500 to cover the rest of June and July. Please help us with this important work
TFT Kigali, team leaders and practitioners are working hard to help the masses of people who have been traumatized and retraumatized during the 2018 Annual Mourning Period throughout Rwanda, facilitating healing from the 1994 Genocide.
For many veterans, the last battle is still being fought long after they retired their uniforms. In too many cases the final action ends by taking their own lives. Current statistics reflect that twenty veterans take their own lives each day of the year. My personal experience and encounters with other combat veterans lead me to believe that most carry some degree or piece of the last battle that has not been put to rest. Accumulated past or bad experience stressors may result in hyper-vigilance, anger or guilt brought on by a thought, smell or dream.
As a recipient and now a provider of TFT, I see the positive results of this modality on a daily basis. The following case study is only unique in that the administration of the treatment occurred from a distance of hundreds of miles between the provider and recipient. This review also provides the perspective of the treatment from the viewpoint of each participant.
Provider Statement:Provider is a licensed therapist and retired veteran who served as an Infantry Officer. The therapist was previously diagnosed with PTSD and treated via the TFT modality more than six years ago. The provider later attended the Callahan Boot Camp Program in Nellysford, VA under the tutelage of Joanie Callahan. The provider is a contractor at a substance abuse clinic and incorporates TFT among the treatment modalities that are utilized in the clinic. The nature and profile of the clients he assists in treatment/counseling often present individuals that have suffered traumas not only from accidents but horrific physical and mental abuse.
