Accelerated Resolution Therapy utilizes a natural process similar to the Rapid Eye Movement stage of sleep, known as REM. During this stage our eyes move back and forth, rapidly integrating new data with the existing memory bank in the brain. Although the exact process is a mystery, some believe it is the brain's way of desensitizing and normalizing events in such a way that we feel better when we wake. Unfortunately, some occurrences get stuck and can't be properly integrated. The most obvious example is soldiers experiencing PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder.)
Although our personal traumas and stresses may be less intense than PTSD, they may still interfere with our peace of mind. Regardless of the severity, these too can be addressed with A.R.T. For example: a counselor struggled daily by procrastinating about completing his case notes after seeing each client and would end the day having to take files home to be completed the next morning before returning to work. In one session of A.R.T. he now completes his notes after each client session and his mornings are free for other things.
(By the way, the U.S. Army has found A.R.T. to be one of the most effective methods of treating PTSD. A number of VA hospital and military base staffs have been trained in A.R.T.)
God designed our brain with this unique ability just like he designed our immune system to fight disease. But as we all know, sometimes our immune system needs a little help and occassionally our brain needs a little help, too. A.R.T. replicates this natural system while fully awake allowing most to get relief in only a few sessions. More sessions may be required for the most complex issues.
A.R.T. is effective in:
- Resolving hurtful emotions related to another person's behavior or disturbing situations such as abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issue, etc.
- Resolving compulsive and addictive behaviors such as procrastination, phobias, alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex, shopping, smoking, pornography, etc.
- Resolving negative coping attitudes such as anger, depression, fear, and unforgiveness.
If you have annoying habits or behaviors irritating you or persisten traumatic experiences that interfere with your life and relationships, A.R.T. can help. This unique new therapy has proven effective with everything from annoying phobias to major traumas.
