Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

New Trauma Healing Modality: Resolve Trauma Today

 

What exactly is Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)??
ART is a cutting-edge, evidence-based therapy that helps individuals process and resolve traumatic memories and other emotional disturbances rapidly. It combines aspects of well-established psychotherapies along with eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation to promote healing. During an ART session, clients are guided to revisit distressing memories in a safe and controlled manner, allowing them to reprocess these memories in a more adaptive and less distressing way.
Unlike traditional talk therapies that can take many sessions to achieve results, ART often yields significant improvements in just a few sessions. This makes it a promising option for those struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, and other psychological challenges.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) stands out as a distinctive psychotherapeutic approach. What sets ART apart is its focus on replacing negative mental imagery that triggers symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive, client-chosen images—typically accomplished in just one session. By swiftly substituting negative images with positive ones, ART effectively eliminates triggers, putting an end to nightmares and intrusive thoughts.

For compelling evidence of ART's efficacy, explore the growing body of research at: [ART Evidence-Based](https://acceleratedresolutiontherapy.com/evidence-based/). Notably, ART is endorsed as evidence-based by the Society of Clinical Psychology, Division 12 of the American Psychological Association (APA).

Moreover, ART uniquely integrates the potent effect of eye movements to facilitate voluntary changes in clients' mental states, blending established therapies like Gestalt, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Guided Imagery. Within the ART framework, these therapies are accelerated and optimized by incorporating eye movements and other ART techniques.

ART isn't limited to Post-Traumatic Stress; it rapidly resolves a spectrum of mental health issues including OCD, Eating Disorders, Generalized Anxiety, Depressive Disorders, and traumas linked to Dyslexia. Remarkably, ART extends beyond traditional boundaries to enhance reading skills.

The calming and therapeutic impact of eye movements is well-documented, shown to induce theta brain waves associated with creativity, intuition, and meditative states. A standout feature of ART is that clients can replace negative images without delving into trauma details, as the therapy is procedural and client-driven with the ART Therapist acting as a supportive guide. This client-centered approach makes therapy more manageable for both clients and therapists.

Despite the potentially painful nature of trauma visualization, clients swiftly transition in ART sessions, making positive changes without dwelling on past distress. ART sessions are often characterized by calmness and joy, particularly towards completion, benefitting both clients and therapists.
