This Book makes Unsupported and Grandiose Claims
The fact is that after over 25 years in development, Roger Callahan's Thought Field Therapy has no solid evidence, in the form of well-designed, published controlled studies, to support its claims, even at the most basic level. Callahan claims that the most advanced level of TFT, the Voice Technology has a success rate of 97-98% and is on a par with hard science, yet the only evidence he cites to support this are uncontrolled 'data' from radio show performances of himself and one of his trainees and treatments done at highly enthusiastic trainings. I was trained in VT and found it not to live up to its claims. I conducted a controlled study, being published in the Scientific Review of Mental Health Practice that demonstrates VT to be no better than randomly selected treatments requiring no special 'technology'. Yet the Callahans continue to charge people $100,000 to be trained on this level and clients are charged up to $600 per hour for VT. For people who are considering signing up for TFT treatment or training, I recommend the following article: http://www.srmhp.org/0302/media-watch.html Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence and after 25 years, TFT has come up short on such evidence.
