Accelerated Resolution Therapy

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a unique approach to psychotherapy. ART is unique because the ART Therapist guides the client to replace the negative images in the mind that cause the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive images of the client’s choosing. It may be an effective intervention for trauma, depression, and other mental health concerns. ART uses eye movements aimed to help quickly alleviate symptoms, which are often related to past trauma.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an integrated, somatic trauma-focused psychotherapy that uses eye movements and voluntary image replacement for rapid relief and recovery from distressing images and difficult sensations. Many folks really like ART because it does not require discussing trauma details and the process itself is calming. It's generally very effective in treating trauma (one-time incidents or complex trauma), anxiety, depression, phobias, grief issues and more.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a form of psychotherapy that aims to alleviate symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and stress-related disorders. It uses eye movements and visualization techniques to help you process distressing memories and emotions more rapidly than traditional therapy methods. ART is designed to promote emotional healing and reduce impact of past traumatic experiences.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a quick and effective way to create lasting change. ART does not require you to talk about your painful past in order to heal from it. You, the Client, are in control of what is happening in session. Accelerated Resolution Therapy is an innovated approach building off of EMDR and combining a multitude of traditional psychotherapeutic techniques utilized in... Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Gestalt, Brief Psychodynamic, Exposure, and CBT.

I am trained in the use of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) for the treatment of traumas, intimate partner violence, substance abuse, anxiety, self-image, and post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms. Some of my clients have stated that they felt less symptom severity and improved ability to locate their physical sensations and express their feelings/emotions after a few sessions.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an evidence-based eye-movement therapy similar to EMDR. In an ART protocol, however, you do not need to articulate details of your trauma or distress aloud. ART targets the images and body sensations, stored by your brain, related to your trauma or presenting problem. Many participants experience relief within the first few ART sessions. ART therapists require intensive, specific training and understand the relationship between the brain and trauma.

— Nicholas Hatcher, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

As most individuals experience trauma at some point during the lifecycle, being a trauma-informed clinician is vitally important. I have trained in trauma treatment including Prolonged Exposure, Rapid Resolution Therapy, and find Accelerated Resolution Therapy to be the most gentle and effective approach to easing one's pain from the past. With the combination of eye movements, imaginal exposure, sensory processing, and neuro-biological calming strategies, it is possible to heal from the past
