Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a form of psychotherapy, developed by Laney Rosenzweig, LMFT, with roots in existing evidence-based therapies but shown to achieve benefits much more rapidly (frequently within 1-5 sessions).
Clients with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, sexual abuse and many other mental and physical conditions can experience remarkable benefits starting in the first session. ART is not hypnosis.
Imagine, if you can, what it feels like to carry a burden for years and then, all of a sudden, be able to let it go – years of carrying the effects of trauma gone during a single session with an ART therapist. This type of relief may seem unbelievable, but it does happen consistently with the use of Accelerated Resolution Therapy. In ART we say, “Keep the Knowledge, Lose the Pain.”
ART works to reprogram the way in which distressing images and memories are stored in the brain so that they may no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions.
ART uses visualization techniques and attention on how the body is affected by distressing images or memories, enhanced through use of rapid eye movements similar to eye movements during dreaming.
ART is now officially recognized as evidenced-based treatment for psychological trauma and depression by the SAMHSA National Registry of Evidenced Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
