What is SAF®?

SAF® stands for Self Awareness Formulas. It is a collective work of questionnaires and health evaluations, books, computing programs, and training materials written by Joseph R. Scogna, Jr. SAF® is a registered trademark.

How is SAF® different from other methods of self awareness?

This is an enlightening system of thought, a tool to help us find and understand past traumas, and how these might still be affecting us in the present. SAF can rapidly pinpoint when a trauma occurred in our life, as well as the nature of the event.

How can SAF® find our traumas?

This method defines certain organ and gland systems, which hold recordings of what has happened to us in the recent and distant past. Everything is recorded – specific emotions, conditions, actions. When we identify which organs are stressed the most, this will tell us what emotions need to be processed.

From there, we can discover what “code” was created from the time of childhood. These codes may have been effective as children but as we grew older, the emotions and actions that once helped us survive in our family became obsolete. These are often impediments to us as adults when we try to forge new relationships at work and at home.

For this reason, it’s absolutely essential to become aware of our past codes and patterns. In the future, you may find yourself in a similar situation, but after working with SAF you’ll be able to say, “Hey, wait a minute, this isn’t working for me anymore.” “Been here, done that.” You’ve spotted a behavior pattern before it became a problem.

With SAF, we can learn to unravel the confusions of our past and put the puzzling pieces back together so these make sense.

How does SAF® work?

The Stress 120 Questionnaire for emotional issues or the shorter Q24 are excellent evaluations. These are subjective tests – they work on the basis of your input. It will present your viewpoint, your reality as you see it. So, there are no right or wrong answers. There is no “better way” to answer the questions.
The Extech IR 200 infrared device will also help create a chain of numbers.

Your answers will be put into an order of priority, the SAF chain of numbers. These numbers relate to the specific organ and gland systems, emotions as mentioned above. The SAF chain will take what you do know about yourself and help you learn what you don’t know about the causes and earlier events that created the situation you find yourself in today.
How effective is SAF®?

It is outstanding! We can get to the main issues in a few minutes where previously it might have taken a year of therapy work.

Is it necessary to have a practice to use SAF®?

With SAF, we have our own certification process. Our training door is open to all who are interested in increasing self awareness. Our motto, Growth Through Self Knowledge, reflects this. Reading SAF Simplified is a great way to start. We encourage all readers of SAF books to become certified in Level I. Our students work with practitioners until they are proficient.

What types of practitioners use SAF®?

In addition to standard medicine, Certified SAF Practitioners and Coaches work in such fields as addictions counseling, art therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, dental, energetic healing, emotional release (various), homeopathy, light therapy, marriage/couples therapy, massage and physical therapy, naturopathy, nutrition, psychology, sound therapy, stress management, and more.
How can you get started?

If you’d like to discover YOUR stress level and what emotions from childhood may be directing you in the present time, we invite you to complete our FREE Stress 120 Questionnaire or the Q24. At the end of the questionnaire, you’ll be given your SAF chain of numbers. If a student or client, submit to your practitioner where prompted.

If you are not yet an SAF student and would like an interpretation of your SAF chain, save your chain and call one of the practitioners listed on the web site. SAF interpretations are accomplished in person or by phone for a fee. With SKYPE, distance is not a problem.
