Accelerated Resolution Therapy

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), is a new transformative 9 step therapy for PTSD; trauma; anxiety; depression etc. ART incorporates a combination of techniques used in many other traditional psychotherapies. ART works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions. ART accomplishes this with rapid eye movements like eye movements that occur during dreaming. Although techniques like these are used in other types of therapies, ART’s very specific and directive approach can achieve rapid recovery from symptoms and reactions that may have been present for many years. 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.
