THOUGHT FIELD THERAPY CLINICAL APPLICATIONS, Introduction. Thought Field Therapy TFT is a self administered brief treatment that uses energy meridian treatment. points and bilateral optical cortical stimulation while focusing attention on the targeted negative emotion. or symptom TFT has been developed since 1980 by psychologist Roger Callahan who treated 97 of 68. phobic patients successfully in an average treatment time of 4 34 min Callahan 1985 Callahan s. uncontrolled study with treatments recorded in public view was replicated by psychologist Glenn. Leonoff with 97 success reported with 68 phobics in an average treatment time of 6 04 min Leonoff. Charles Figley and Joyce Carbonell noted that all of the newer therapies for post traumatic stress disorder. PTSD that they explored accelerated the therapy for trauma in contrast to the lengthy traditional. therapies However TFT was reported to be the most rapid treatment with comparable treatment success. to the other new therapies Traumatic Incident Reduction TIR treatment mean duration was 254 min. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing EMDR 172 min Visual Kinesthetic Dissociation. VKD 113 min and TFT 63 min More traditional therapies are estimated to take 1 200 to 18 000 min. 20 300 hr of therapy Wylie 1996, In addition to phobias and traumas TFT has been used clinically in the treatment of anxiety addictions. anger stress obsessions depression jealousy and other negative emotions In addition to psychological. diagnoses TFT is now being applied to many other problems by physicians naturopaths chiropractors. dentists acupuncturists and other healing professionals Callahan Callahan 2000 The present. uncontrolled study explores the range of problems amenable to treatment with TFT in the health care and. behavioral health settings, Seven TFT trained therapists at Kaiser Behavioral Medicine Services and Behavioral Health Services. used the symptom specific or problem specific TFT treatments in 1594 applications with 714 patients. Some patients were treated for more than one symptom or problem The therapists were three social. workers two clinical nurse specialists one master s level clinician and one psychologist The therapists. had a minimum of 15 hours of training on use of the TFT algorithms with variable additional hours of. consultation and supervision Behavioral Medicine Service serves patients referred from primary care. physicians nurse practitioners diabetes educators dieticians clinical pharmacists and other staff in the. primary care clinics Behavioral Health Services are the traditional psychiatry and mental health services. offered in a specialty clinic Behavioral Medicine Services sessions typically were 30 minutes in length. whereas Behavioral Health Services sessions were usually 50 minutes long Therapists assessed the. psychiatric disorder or the problem to be treated and obtained a pre treatment Subjective Units of. Distress SUD Wolpe 1969 rating of the severity of the symptom or problem from the patient. Therapists then guided the patient through the TFT treatment specific for the particular symptom or. problem obtaining SUD levels at designated treatment segments The treatment meridian points. sequences and protocols varied for the different target symptoms or problems but were specific for the. symptom or problem and generally followed the TFT algorithms Callahan Trubo 2001 and. treatment flow charts For neurodermatitis tremor trichotillomania Type A personality traits histrionic. traits nausea and for a small percentage of the chronic pain patients individually determined meridian. treatment points and sequences Callahan 1998 were utilized Patients were instructed that accurate SUD. feedback was necessary to guide the segments of the treatment Therapists then obtained a post treatment. SUD in the same session Data were recorded on clinical multi purpose tracking forms by the therapists. Pre treatment and post treatment SUD for problems or symptoms for which at least 5 patients were. treated were compared by paired t tests using SYSTAT 7 0 SPSS Inc 1997. Heart rate variability short term recordings of 5 minutes pre treatment and 5 minutes post treatment were. obtained using Biocom Technologies Heart Scanner Version 1 00 Beta in those cases where it was. feasible The Heart Scanner utilized two electrocardiograph ECG leads with three contacts attached on. the palm side of each of the patient s index fingers by velcro strips Patients were sitting upright in a. straight backed chair during the recordings, Statistically significant within session reductions in self reported distress were obtained with 31 problems. or symptoms treated with TFT in 1594 applications with 714 patients see Table 1 These included acute. stress adjustment disorder with anxiety and depression alcohol cravings anger anxiety anxiety due to. medical condition bereavement chronic pain depression fatigue major depressive disorder. maladaptive food cravings nausea neurodermatitis nicotine cravings obsessive traits obsessive. compulsive disorder obsessive compulsive personality disorder panic disorder without agoraphobia. parent child stress partner relational stress post traumatic stress disorder relationship stress social. phobia specific phobia tremor trichotillomania Type A personality traits or histrionic traits and work. Paired t tests of pre treatment SUD and post treatment SUD were significant at the 001 level of. probability except alcohol cravings major depressive disorder and tremors which were significant at the. 01 level The number of patients N treated for each diagnostic category or symptom Dx or Sx mean. pre treatment SUD SUD Pre mean post treatment SUD SUD Post mean difference Mean Diff. standard deviation of the mean difference SD and t value t are summarized in Table 1 LOU Level of. Urge was substituted for SUD as patient s subjective rating of intensity of cravings for alcohol nicotine. and specific food cravings, Case Report, Case A was a female in her 30 s who was referred for depression flashbacks insomnia hypervigilance.
avoidance behaviors and hyperstartle The CES D Center for Epidemiological Studies of Depression. scale a 20 item commonly used patient report of depression symptoms Radloff 1977 score was 49. which was in the extremely depressed range By history her depression appeared secondary to a trauma. so she was treated with the algorithm for complex trauma with TFT After treatment her Subjective Units. of Distress SUD dropped from 10 to 0 She no longer appeared tense fatigued irritable sad and feeling. hopeless but instead appeared animated more energetic and relaxed Although the CES D is not. designed as a within session measure she had completed the initial scale as she was feeling at the time. and stated that she was feeling differently after treatment so she repeated the CES D at the end of that. 30 minute session and attained a normal range score of 14 a 35 point drop and 71 improvement A. followup session one week later was cancelled by the patient who reported having no symptoms In. followup calls 1 month 3 months and 6 months later she reported no further symptoms of depression. nor of post traumatic stress disorder, Case B was a female patient in her 50 s referred for depression weight loss loss of appetite difficulty. sleeping tightness in chest anxiety and distress about her relationship with her partner She had a CES D. score of 50 in the extremely depressed range based on how she was feeling at the time After treatment. for depression and lack of appetite patient reported feeling more energetic less depressed no chest. tightness and she felt more hungry Her post treatment CES D at the end of the 30 minute session was 30. a 20 point drop and 40 improvement On one week followup her appetite continued to improve and. she was regaining weight as well as sleeping better Her CES D score then had improved to 18 a 32. point drop and 64 improvement just above the normal range. Case C was a male in his 30 s referred for panic attacks and chronic pain who reported feeling 100. times better at the followup session three weeks after his initial session and treatment with TFT He. reported no panic attacks and marked decrease in aches and pains. Heart Rate Variability Data, Included in this report are three patients for whom heart rate variability HRV data were obtained before. and after TFT treatment in the same session Sakai Paperny 1999 Paperny Sakai Callahan 2000. HRV refers to the degree of fluctuation in the length of the intervals between heart beats Malik Camm. 1995 and has been found to be relatively stable over time and to not demonstrate placebo effects. Kleiger et al 1991 Short term HRV measures the beat to beat time intervals as the heart speeds up or. slows down with each breath and short term recordings are useful for determining the effects of an acute. intervention on HRV Rottman et al 1996 Short term HRV data can provide useful physiological. information in assessing the effects of a brief treatment. HRV Task Force of the European Society of Cardiology and the North American Society of Pacing and. Electrophysiology 1996 and power spectral density analyses Cohen et al 1999 have been used to. monitor a number of pathological states including predicting mortality after myocardial infarction. Bigger et al 1993 Kleiger Miller 1978 Rottman et al 1996 Stein et al 2000 and congestive heart. failure Saul et al 1988 The effects of emotions on short term power spectrum analyses of heart rate. variability has been studied more recently McCraty et al 1995. Psychiatric research implications of HRV for anxiety and depression are pointed out by Yeragani 1995. who noted the variability of heart rate between 0 15 and 0 5 Hz is related to respiratory sinus arrhythmia. and is modulated by cholinergic activity while the variability between 0 04 and 0 15 Hz is dually. influenced by cholinergic and adrenergic mechanisms which can be used as a relative measure of. sympathetic activity Analysis of HRV provides a window into autonomic control of heart rate which is. valuable in elucidating the autonomic underpinnings of panic disorder Friedman Thayer 1998. Yeragani et al 1998 Middleton Ashby 1995 phobic anxiety Kawachi et al 1995 anxiety. Watkins et al 1999 ADHD Borger et al 1999 type A personality Kamada et al 1992 and. depression Balogh et al 1993 Carney et al 1995 2000 Lehofer et al 1997 Yeragani et al 1991. A lower vagal component of HRV was found with perceived emotional stress regardless of a person s. level of physical fitness heart rate mean arterial blood pressure respiration rate age gender and. disposition toward experiencing anxiety Dishman et al 2000. The first case is a male in his 50 s presenting with chronic pain and sciatica with secondary fatigue and. depression Figure 1 Pre treatment 5 minute Total Power the total variance of normal to normal. heartbeat interval over the course of the sample period of 5 minutes was 312 post treatment Total Power. was 1462 a 469 improvement SDNN standard deviation of the normal to normal heartbeat interval. improved from pre treatment 28 to post treatment 54 Autonomic balance between the sympathetic and. parasympathetic activity was at low levels of regulatory activity at pretreatment small black square in. relationship to the normal level in the central gray square in the autonomic balance diagram and. improved to normal level of regulatory activity at post treatment SUD dropped from 7 at pre treatment to. 0 at post treatment Tachograms of his heart rate acceleration and deceleration for 5 minutes pre. treatment and 5 minutes post treatment demonstrated marked improvement and are shown in Figure 2. The second case is a female in her 50 s presenting with anxiety and stress Figure 3 Pre treatment. spectral analysis Total Power was 350 and post treatment Total Power was improved 216 to 757 Pre. treatment SDNN was 28 with a post treatment improvement to 40 At pre treatment she had low levels. of sympathetic regulation and normal levels of parasympathetic regulation and attained an improved. balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic activity at a normal level at post treatment SUD. dropped from 8 at pre treatment to 0 at post treatment Her 5 minute tachograms at pre treatment and. post treatment show substantial change in variability Figure 4. The third case is a female in her 50 s suffering from anxiety secondary to premature ventricular. contractions PVC and esophageal reflux Figure 5 The data in the middle is from a non specific. control treatment which included the bilateral optical cortical stimulation Her pre treatment Total Power. was 807 control treatment Total Power was 1007 post treatment Total Power was 1246 Her pre. treatment SDNN was 43 control treatment SDNN was 44 and post treatment SDNN was 51 She. initially had low levels of sympathetic and normal levels of parasympathetic regulation at pre treatment. no essential change with the control treatment and attained a balance between sympathetic and. parasympathetic activity at normal levels of regulatory activity at post treatment SUD was 8 at pre. treatment remained at 8 after the control treatment and improved to 0 at post treatment Her 5 minute. tachograms for pre treatment control treatment and post treatment show nominal change with the. control treatment and demonstrate a marked change post treatment Figure 6. Discussion, TFT treatments are associated within session with self reported reduction in distress for a wide variet. Thought Field Therapy TFT is a self administered treatment developed by psychologist Roger Callahan TFT uses energy meridian treatment points and bilateral optical cortical stimulation while focusing on the targeted symptoms or problem being addressed The clinical applications of TFT summarized included
