TBT is a clever combination of meridian tapping and NLP formats (Neurolinguistic Programming). The technique implements the latest research on trauma and findings about the neuroplasticity of the brain: the ability of our brain cells to disconnect and engage in new connections.
Picture a trauma as a blind shell: an unexploded bomb buried a few meters deep underneath the earth surface. This bomb continues to be highly explosive and dangerous – regardless of the time it has been lying there unnoticed. TBT diffuses such a bomb by means of removing the ignition.
In the standardised TBT process a stressful memory is taken through the four-step treatment protocol. But first of all, the main shock point, the moment with the highest emotional intensity in this specific event, is identified and isolated. Then the information in and around this shock point is distorted and scrambled on the auditory and/or visual perception channels.
Between the individual steps, the original event is contacted again and again resulting in a neurological re-conditioning of the experienced. This profoundly changes the way it is remembered: the emotional and physical experience of the memory. It will still be remembered as a negative event, but upon the TBT process it is perceived as something which lies in the past and as of now has come to a closure. It has found its place in the continuum of one's personal biography and thereby lost its influence on the present.
TBT was developed by my EFT Founding Masters colleague Rehana Webster, BSc.
The resident of Australia and New Zealand dedicated ten years of her life to the finetuning of her technique and has been very successful in relieving posttraumatic stress symptoms in adults and children, detainees, refugees and soldiers.
In this 30 minute long video produced by Swiss filmmaker Robert Albert Ernest you can see how Rehana Webster helps Syrian refugees in Lebanon to eliminate their posttraumatic stress. All participants in this workshop had been imprisoned where some of them experienced torture. However, this video doesn't contain any explicit violent content nor any disturbing images.
Watch this "explanatory video" to learn something about the problem of fragmented memory contents.
Much about this new trauma technique makes people curious. Here you can read some of the frequently asked questions and my answers to them.
I am planning on teaching TBT workshops in English starting in the winter/spring of 2019. Please contact me if you are interested so I can inform you on any upcoming dates.
By means of my newsletter, I will inform you around four times per year on my TBT training dates and interesting things in the field of energy psychology.
