Thought Field Therapy Is Proven Efficacious: Why the Critics Are Wrong About TFT
- By Steven Barger
, Independent Scholar
This paper is in response to the October 2001 Journal of Clinical Psychology (JCLP) issue, devoted to the topic of Thought Field Therapy. After reading all the articles, I felt it necessary to respond in detail to objections I had to the critics' articles including: numerous critical reasoning errors, misunderstandings of the actual claims for TFT, several straw-man arguments, a false a priori assumption, arguments from false premises, and citing of references that, when checked, are found to not at all support the specific point being made, by the critic. One critic even cites an article he co-authored that actually contradicts the point he's making, and instead supports a significant point made by TFT proponents! Read the article

The Association for Thought Field Therapy
The Association for Thought Field Therapy Foundation is a non-profit membership organization whose volunteers provide psychological help to people traumatized by wars, natural disasters, genocide and poverty. The group’s Trauma Relief Teams, including psychologists, counsellors, doctors, and social workers, are trained in the Callahan Technique of Thought Field Therapy (TFT). They have assisted trauma victims in many parts of the world, including New Orleans and Mississippi in the aftermath of the Hurricane Katrina disaster; Tabasco and Chiapas , Mexico , after major flooding there; and in Kosovo, the Congo , and Rwanda to treat genocide survivors.

Caroline Sakai, PhD., a psychologist and TFT practitioner, based in Hawaii, headed a team of therapists who worked with children in an orphanage in Kigali, Rwanda. The children survived the Rwandan genocide in 1994, in which 800,000 to 1 million people were slaughtered during the course of 100 days. Dr Sakai was interviewed by Michiko Ishikawa for Share International. Read more: Tapping away the world's trauma


Successful Dental Phobia treatment

Very early in my utilisation of TFT, I treated a woman who had a terrible fear of dentists – very terrible. She would avoid anything to do with dentists. I was able to help her with TFT in a very short time. We first dealt with the trauma she had experienced at the dentist when she was just 5 years old – he slapped her because she was crying. Though she felt a bit foolish, she followed the tapping sequences. She was very surprised when I asked her what the level of distress was for her after completing the tapping sequence to find that her distress had significantly reduced. I followed her up six years later and she had been able to visit the dentist alone and without distress. She couldn't believe how calm she was.
