How does Accelerated Resolution Therapy work?
Using relaxing eye movements and a technique called Voluntary Memory/Image Replacement, ART changes the way in which negative images are stored in the brain. This therapy is grounded in well-established psychotherapy techniques, and the end result is that traumatic memories and difficult life experiences will no longer trigger strong emotions or physical reactions that may encumber recovery.
Who can take advantage of ART?
ART is designed to be user-friendly and appropriate for most individuals who are struggling with traumatic stress and other past challenges. While less well-known than other forms of therapy such as CBT, ART can still play an important role in the recovery process for individuals dealing with trauma.
How do I know if Accelerated Resolution Therapy is right for me?
While your therapist can help you determine if ART is right for you, most individuals in recovery can benefit from ART. This therapeutic approach is particularly helpful for individuals who are managing post-traumatic stress or other mental health challenges from their past.
What should I expect from ART?
ART uses a combination of eye movements, imagery, and guidance from a trained therapist to help the brain better process stored traumatic memories. This process is different for every client depending on their background and recovery goals but is always overseen by a mental health professional.
