Accelerated Resolution Therapy: Out of Trauma
Barry and Kristin discuss what we referred to as EMDR on steroids: Accelerated Resolution Therapy with counselor Prairie Conlon. ART was developed in 2008 by Laney Rosenzweig, LMFT. As a mental health clinician, Laney was trained and proficient in multiple treatment modalities, including EMDR. She quickly appreciated the therapeutic value of eye movements but also recognized the need to modify how they are used and integrated with other techniques. She created treatment protocols that are directive, standardized and easy to apply to different conditions. The genesis of ART involved integrating elements from different therapies in a unique and more effective way. We discuss on this show why this method of helping us with our trauma is in high demand during the Coronavirus outbreak.
