We found Marie in a small house in the outskirts of Kigali. Her fragile body was present in the room, but her thoughts were trapped in the genocide almost 20 years earlier; a never-ending nightmare where she was beaten down to the ground with clubs.
“Thank you for what you offered to the people of Kenya, many said you have given them a life long gift. You are planting seeds of peace in people. They will grow and become a forest.”
Pastor James Wuye
The intervention we taught Marie in less than an hour gave her relief after a few sessions, and is a simple relaxation technique that can be learned by anyone. The method is called Trauma Tapping Technique and we have spread it to over 100.000 people in conflict-ridden parts of the world. Anybody can help spread it, all you need is the will to do so.
Marie is just one of millions of people caught in horrific memories from war, trauma and stress (the woman in the image is not Marie). The need for a non-specialist intervention is global. Imagine the memories refugees from Syria are carrying. Despite incredible numbers of people in this situation we believe everyone can make a difference and this is how:
We have written a book about this method and our experiences; “Resolving Yesterday – First Aid for Stress and Trauma with TTT”. We are giving away an e-version so as many as possible can learn and benefit from this through self-help and helping those around them.
“The TTT is now a mainstream in all walks of our lives, place of work, home etc. We are currently engaged with SGV victims. We no doubt employ it and will make you know.”

“For Rwanda, this treatment is very important. It is also not expensive if we consider other treatments which demand the experts or high education in the domain and other materials. I see this treatment method as answer of the problem of trauma in Rwanda because many people can be trained and assist their collegues.”
Naphtal Ahishakiye, Ibuka (Umbrella organisation of genocide survivors organisations in Rwanda) former President of AOCM and winner of Worlds´s Children´s Prize for the Rights of the Child in 2006
