Accelerated Resolution Therapy is an evidence based therapy utilized to help process emotionally disturbing memories. Each ART session is 90 minutes to 2 hours, involving rapid eye movement and strategic guiding by your therapist. Unlike other somatic based therapies, ART targets the visual memories associated with the identified trauma, helping you directly address the cause of your pain.
Most clients report noticing a difference in symptoms in as few as 3 sessions, sometimes within one. ART helps create new calming visualizations around painful past memories or experiences that may be difficult to think about.
Conditions treatable with ART:
Sexual Abuse Trauma
Grief Due to Unexpected Loss
Addiction (drug, alcohol, and sex addiction)
Early Childhood Trauma (Complex PTSD)
Any Emotionally Disturbing Event
After completing ART, it is normal to feel emotional relief and to experience positive imagery newly established with the memories you worked on. ART utilizes a blend of bi-lateral eye moments (similar to EMDR), and oscillates between helping you process the visual memory of what happened and sensations in your body related to the memory. The blend of targeting the memory and how you feel about it gives you the space to rapidly seek healing in a quicker period of time.
