Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a cutting-edge, evidence- and research-based intervention that can either be a stand-alone therapy or part of a treatment protocol.
ART uses rapid eye movements, imagery recall, and volunteer image replacement to change the way stressful (traumatic) memories are stored in the brain and experienced in the body. ART has been proven to successfully treat the following:
• Panic Attacks
• Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
• Addictions/ Substance Abuse
• Family Issues
• Victimization/Poor Self Image
• Relationship Issues/Infidelity
• Job-Related Stress
• Pain Management
• Memory Enhancement
Hear is a detailed description of ART from the originator of the therapy, Laney Rozenzweig:
CBT is a type of therapy that can help a client to think differently about their experiences and relationships. CBT is based on the idea that how we think, how we feel, and how we act are all intertwined. CBT can help identify and change self-protective or unproductive ways of thinking.
The primary difference between how we use CBT and how others may use CBT, is we believe that cognitive distortions are based on self-protective but unproductive ways of thinking. Traditional CBT uses language such as “irrational” or “biased” when examining distortions. Oftentimes for our first responders, their distortions develop simply as a result of being really good at their job. “If you’ve seen what we’ve seen, you’d think the way we think.” We acknowledge and respect that experience, while eliminating problematic thinking.
A variation of CBT, Trauma-Focused CBT uses this specific approach to treating PTSD. This approach includes understanding that symptoms of trauma are normal and predictable.
With this approach, we educate clients about the body and stress, trauma, and symptoms. This therapy includes an increased awareness of tension and felt sensations in the body, learning self‐regulation skills, and resolving cognitive distortions.
DBT focuses on clients who may have multiple diagnoses. DBT has been adapted for behaviors that threaten a person’s safety, relationships, work, and emotional well-being- including conditions like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and PTSD.
DBT is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that helps change negative thinking patterns and facilitate positive behavioral changes. A unique aspect of DBT is its focus on acceptance of a client’s experience and the work needed to change negative behaviors.
DBT aims to reduce the severity of suicidal urges and behavior, reduce anger, and improve social experiences.
