Written by a practicing TFT therapist who deals with clients that have addictions and co-morbidity issues dealing with past traumas that compound their progress:
…treated a client for a 50 year past molestation by a parent utilizing a complex trauma algorithm [a simpler version of the protocol taught on this site]. Client who arrived with a somewhat aggressive and commanding presence and demeanor could barely whisper thank you, thank you upon completion. Just as I was starting to walk him back to the checkout area I asked him to tell me again in a couple of words how he felt. He replied slowly, “I feel clean, I have been washed.” That night I thanked God for him allowing me to play a part in lifting this horrible burden that another human-being has had to carry for so many years.
In November 2016, Mona and Rudolf Kauffman travelled to South Sudan to train groups in TFT for trauma relief. This photo was taken in Juba, South Sudan, during a meeting with a group of refugee women tapping for trauma relief.
“It was a very beautiful encounter and a meeting of the hearts.” Mona & Rudolf Kaufmann
