A colleague of Suzanne Connolly, Pegah Seidi in Kurdistan Iraq, is presenting TFT to a large crowd of professionals. She is spreading TFT throughout the region for trauma relief and is very excited about TFT and wants to do more research with it. Suzanne is helping her with an observational study and wants to share their enthusiasm about the results she sees using TFT.
Suzanne Connolly, LCSW, recently shared the summarized data from the ACE’s study with a small group of colleagues in Costa Rica. This material is so important for all of us to know and understand as we work to help trauma in the world.
“ACEs” comes from the CDC-Kaiser Adverse Childhood Experiences Study, a groundbreaking public health study that discovered that childhood trauma leads to the adult onset of chronic diseases, depression and other mental illness, violence and being a victim of violence, as well as financial and social problems.
The CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is one of the largest investigations of childhood abuse and neglect and household challenges and later-life health and well-being.
The original ACE Study was conducted at Kaiser Permanente from 1995 to 1997 with two waves of data collection. Over 17,000 Health Maintenance Organization members from Southern California receiving physical exams completed confidential surveys regarding their childhood experiences and current health status and behaviors.

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.
Our leader, Celestin Mitabu, says, “When TFT practitioners serve the community with psychologists from the public institutions, we are all equal in the way of doing things, that is why we hold Hospital badges, showing we are treating people that have been traumatized.” Continue reading “The continuing great work our teams are doing in Rwanda”
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.
In order to expand TFT to all the prisons of Rwanda, which has been requested by the Rwandan General Commissioner of Corrections, funds are greatly needed. For more information about these efforts–and to help the foundation heal the hearts of Rwanda’s prisoners, their families, and prison staff–click on this link. Such a powerful way to contribute to World Peace.
Our prayers and love go out to all those affected by the recent tragedy in Las Vegas. Please pass along the link to this site (www.TFTtraumarelief.com) to anyone who was traumatized by this event, whether or not they live in Las Vegas. In this way we can all bring relief to those suffering.
