Trauma Tapping in Sierra Leone

Fambul Tok, Trauma Tapping in Sierra Leone

Women of Moyamba, Kono, Koinadugu and Kailahun benefited from the Trauma Tapping Treatment introduced by the team from Sweden (Gunilla and Robert). T.T.T. was timely and the women who were victims of the war appreciated it very much. The aim of the training was achieved as it was very much welcomed by women who were victims of rape and those who witnessed the killing of their husbands and children etc. They also understood the fact that the T.T.T.should not be misunderstood for medical treatment of other ailments but specifically for trauma. This treatment, the women stated, will spread throughout their chiefdoms.
