How Can Accelerated Resolution Therapy Help Me?
Accelerated Resolution Therapy is an evidence-based psychotherapy that utilizes back and forth eye movements to help rewire the way we store memories. Relief is immediate and is felt within one session for the majority of clients. This treatment method is a brief, yet effective, form of exposure-based therapy that helps decrease an individual’s internal and external reactions to negative thoughts and memories associated with trauma and extreme stress.
In experiencing Accelerated Resolution Therapy, an individual may find that it can help connect pieces of information that are already stored in his or her memory. An individual does not have to talk at length about the identified event or concern, which can help make this therapy feel less overwhelming. Ultimately, the brain is doing the work to make new connections to help provide resolution and closure.
Most of us experience trauma throughout our lifetimes. These moments come to define our lives. Sometimes we find ways to move forward, and sometimes we find ourselves stuck and haunted by our past. Talk therapy can often help us move forward. At times, though, it is not enough. We may grow tired of repeating our story, and it can become re-traumatizing to keep talking about the past. Accelerated Resolution Therapy is the solution!
