Resolving Trauma with Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
Trauma is a common experience that can leave lasting negative effects on one’s mental and emotional health. Traditional therapy methods, such as talk therapy and medication, have been used to treat PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms, but not everyone finds these methods effective. Fortunately, there are alternative therapies that can be used to treat trauma and related symptoms. One such therapy is Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), which is offered at Malaty Therapy. In this blog post, we will explore what ART is, how it works, and the benefits of this treatment.
What is Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)?
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a relatively new form of therapy that is gaining popularity because of its ability to help people resolve trauma quickly and effectively. It was developed in 2008 by Laney Rosenzweig, a licensed marriage and family therapist. ART is a unique form of therapy that combines aspects of several other therapeutic modalities, such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and hypnotherapy. ART is a brief, focused, and effective therapy that aims to resolve trauma-related symptoms in a short amount of time.
How Does ART Work?
ART uses a combination of relaxation techniques, guided imagery, and eye movements to help people process and resolve traumatic experiences. During an ART session, the therapist will guide the patient through a series of eye movements while the patient visualizes the traumatic event. This process helps the patient to reprocess the traumatic memory in a safe and controlled environment, allowing them to release the emotional intensity of the memory.
Benefits of ART
One of the main benefits of ART is its effectiveness in treating PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms. According to research, ART has been shown to be as effective as traditional therapies such as prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy, but with shorter treatment times. ART is also a non-invasive therapy that does not require the use of medication, making it a safe and natural treatment option.
ART has also been shown to be effective in treating other mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and phobias. ART has been particularly effective in treating substance abuse disorders by addressing the underlying trauma that often leads to addiction.
ART is also a relatively easy therapy to administer. Unlike traditional talk therapy, ART does not require the patient to recount their traumatic experiences in detail, which can be helpful for those who are uncomfortable with talk therapy. ART is also a brief therapy, with most sessions lasting between 45 and 90 minutes.
