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”
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.

We are sharing this on behalf of one of our newest Algorithm Practitioners in the Middle East, Zena Nabil Hammami. It is her first case study after completing her online algorithm certification course.
Just think what a difference it could make in the lives of children everywhere, and especially those living in the war-torn areas around our planet.

A friend of mine came to me to help her little son, he was 6 years and he was having a daily “Enuresis”, actually his mother used to put a baby diaper for him every night, she said that she took him to the doctor and after doing the medical tests, there seemed to be no clinical reason, his urinary system was ok!
I knew previously that the boy was having difficult times in the war here in Syria especially in his city, so I started to talk to the boy in a lovely and kind way, I asked him about his most fears, and I understand that he was afraid to lose his mother as he lost his father (his father is a prisoner for years) in the war, so his body is reacting in this way so he can gain more attention from his mother like a baby! So I started to begin the process with the: Algorithm of Fears “simple phobias”. Continue reading “Syrian Trauma Relief Through Tapping”
Sponsored by the TFT Foundation and supported by the Nalaniikaleomana Foundation in Hawaii, Dr. Caroline Sakai and Cyndie and Gary Quinn went to Rwanda in September to help give more TFT trainings–and to support, however they could, the TFT IZERE Center, Byumba, and TFT Kigali. This included TFT trainings for the Rwandan Correctional System, part of the TFT Foundation’s new Rwandan Prison Project.
Caroline Sakai, PhD, relates the powerful transformation of the village elder who witnessed the slaughter of his wife and children, and endured near decapitation himself, during the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
