    Accelerated Resolution Therapy

    Accelerated Resolution Therapy is often referred to as ART. It is a form of therapy that has roots in existing empirical practices such as CBT, EMDR, and other therapies, but it is intended to show benefits more rapidly. (Often within 1-5 sessions).

    It is most commonly utilized for clients coping with trauma. Working through trauma can be a difficult process, but in ART, you, the client, are always in control of the pace. Some traumatic experiences can be very stressful to visualize, but the therapy quickly moves clients beyond their “stuck points” with these experiences towards growth and moving forward in life.

    It is a very straightforward process that utilizes eye movements with a technique called Voluntary Memory or Image replacement to change the way traumatic experiences are stored in our brains. These eye movements are similar to the eye movements we have during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep. The end goal is for traumatic experiences to no longer trigger strong emotional reactions.

    The best part? You do not have to go into detail discussing your traumatic situations with a therapist for the technique to be effective. Of course, you are always welcome to share these details, but it is not required.
