Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence-based therapy for the treatment of trauma, phobias, anxiety-related disorders, and depression that is effective in alleviating symptoms within 1 to 5 sessions. Through guided visualization and with the use of eye movements, ART works with images and has the goal of memory reconsolidation. The individual is encouraged to focus on the story, themes, and metaphors, not the symptoms.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a unique treatment in that it includes many components from other therapies and treatment models including the following: exposure therapy, Gestalt therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), imagery re-scripting, guided imagery, and brief psychodynamic therapy.

Whatever you did made such a difference for me. I was able to put the past in the past and when I think about it now, it is like a fleeting thought and I do not react to it. I feel a huge burden was lifted off of me.
ART calms me better than medication and helps me gain clarity so that I can resolve my problems without feeling anxious or stressed.
It is like you just turned something off for me. It is like it is gone. I mean have the memory but when I think about it, it doesn’t upset me.
The image is just gone. I don’t even know how you did that! Wow! I just don’t see it anymore. I couldn’t stop seeing it before, but now I can’t even see it in my mind.
