An Overview of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an innovative mental health treatment, an experimental and new-age remedy for individuals suffering from trauma, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, and other health conditions.

ART illustrates the evolution of therapy, integrating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Talk Therapy, and Exposure Therapy into a cohesive and personalized treatment plan. In addition, a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) is widely considered the “gold standard” to determine whether an intervention is effective or not.

Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a specific type of cognitive behavioral therapy that has been particularly effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD that have developed after experiencing combat trauma.

This multi-dimensional approach unravels and mends the complexities of the human mind, fostering resilience and nurturing mental tranquility.

How Does Accelerated Resolution Therapy Work?

As practiced at TMF, ART is a harmonious blend of diverse treatment modalities. Accelerated Resolution Therapy navigates through CBT, enhancing cognitive pathways and cultivating adaptive thought processes. It intertwines with the principles of DBT, fostering emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. Elements of Talk Therapy are seamlessly infused, facilitating a verbal canvas to express, explore, and evolve. Exposure Therapy components are adeptly integrated, allowing for the gentle confrontation and resolution of traumatic memories and distressing experiences. ART therapists help clients work on voluntary memory replacement to help ease the symptoms related to a psychologically traumatic event.

Accelerated resolution therapy is designed to be delivered from one ART session up to five ART sessions, each around 60 to 75 minutes long, over the course of a 2-week period. Research has indicated that many people experience positive results within this time frame. Clients report experiencing fewer negative images caused by a distressing memory and find it easier to focus on positive images.
