La Quinta (PRWEB) December 28, 2008
Joanne Callahan, President of the Association for Thought Field Therapy Foundation is pleased to announce free, much-needed PTSD, trauma and stress relief for those soldiers returning from war. These easily learned, self-applied techniques, Thought Field Therapy (TFT) are based on time-honored principles of both contemporary clinical psychology and Chinese medicine to conquer PTSD, trauma, anxiety, stress and fears.
The VA is seriously overburdened. Various high-level military personnel report there is nothing they can do to help all those afflicted with PTSD, and when they do acknowledge the need for further evaluation, most soldiers are told to wait weeks, or even months for an appointment. Even those who have severe PTSD and attempted suicide are often told it will be weeks before they can be seen. One veteran was even told to do cardio exercises for relief of his stress and trauma problems.
TFT has been used world-wide in PTSD and trauma relief and humanitarian projects. Joanne Callahan, President of the ATFT Foundation is sympathetic to the needs of those returning from war-torn areas and is offering assistance. The ATFT Foundation's past humanitarian and trauma relief in Rwanda, New Orleans and Kosovo have demonstrated that TFT is a powerful and effective treatment for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.) Locally, she is now offering free training in the procedures used for trauma and stress relief for professionals, chaplains and counselors of military bases. Another project in development is a trauma relief package of donated timeshare weeks with self-help materials and a volunteer coach as a retreat for selected veterans.
Recent studies show there is need for mounting concern for the families of vets. Their families can also use the potentially life-saving properties that TFT techniques offer. These Trauma relief procedures are simple and easy to use and are available in English, Spanish by visiting http://www.atftfoundation.org/traumahelp.html . They are also available on the home page of her business site, http://www.TFTRX.com and the home page of the Association for Thought Field Therapy, http://www.ATFT.org .
