Accelerated Resolution Therapy


Program Description

Developed in 2008, Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is a brief, exposure-based psychotherapy aimed at treating psychological trauma, depression, anxiety, phobias, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and substance use. The program is delivered in one to five, 60–75 minute sessions over 2 weeks. The program incorporates specific visualization techniques enhanced through the use of rapid eye movements (similar to the rapid eye movement stage of sleep) and a directive approach that reduces physical and emotional reactions to distressing memories and images stored in the brain. The program has been implemented with adults in three military settings and in numerous community-based and private-practice settings across the United States, since 2011.
