  1. Dear TFT,

    I received basic training several years ago. Within a month, my mother was diagnosed with cancer. I stopped everything to take care of her.

    Now, three years later, I’m considering more TFT training and certification, and I am also becoming active in peacebuilding efforts in East Africa. I see that several people from Rwanda have taken the training, and I’m wondering if there is a non-language-based way of using TFT? It would be so helpful to Rwandans and other traumatized populations to be able to use TFT to treat trauma even though I am not a native speaker (of Rwanda or of other countries, including the recent traumas in Japan).
    Any information on this?

    1. Response by Suzanne M. Connolly, LCSW, LMFT:
      Thank you for your interest in helping others using Thought Field Therapy. I have been with an ATFT Foundation trauma relief team deployed to Rwanda on five occasions staying a little short of a month on each trip. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. We teach TFT to community leaders and then supervise the Rwandans treating their countrymen and women. We use Rwandan/English translators at all times. We have very good ones and they are always hoping for work. It is not necessary to speak the native language to teach TFT or treat others using TFT although you must have an interpreter.

      If you would like to know more, or would like to contribute in some way to the support of a Rwandan therapist as she or he treats others at the Rwandan TFT Center please let me know. Many thanks for your interest in helping the underserved people of the world.

  2. Hello Mary, I would really like to be part of this project, too. I used to work in Pakistan in development, mainly with women and would love to go back with TFT, so these valuable tools can be passed on.Thank you so very much.
