Frequently Asked Questions

What is Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)?

ART is a relatively new eye movement therapy developed from EMDR. ART can result in remarkably rapid results for some clients, sometimes in as few as 3-5 sessions. ART uses a technique called “imaginal exposure” in which the client imagines the traumatic event in a compressed and less distressing form. The client then processes and integrates the memory with the help of bilateral stimulation.

How is Accelerated Resolution Therapy Different from EMDR?

Clients are not required to sustain recall of the actual memory or verbalize their responses. Additionally, success can be achieved more rapidly and with less distress.

Is Accelerated Resolution Therapy an evidence-based therapy

Yes. Although ART is the new kid on the block, it has been recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Can ART be used in intensive treatment formats?

Because of its brief nature, ART is an ideal format for a multi-day intensive.
