Traumatic events often lead to distressing memories that cause strong physical and emotional reactions in individuals. Accelerated Resolution therapy (ART) incorporates a combination of techniques used in many other traditional psychotherapies. The therapist works directly to reprogram the brain through the use of rapid eye movements similar to eye movements that occur during dreaming and EMDR. ART’s very specific and directive approach can achieve rapid recovery from symptoms and reactions that may have been present for many years and caused maladative coping skills. It has shown to be effective for depression, grief, PTSD, anxiety, phobias, and addiction. ART combines long respected, sound treatment practices with safe and effective methods validated by current scientific research studies conducted by the University of South Florida.
