Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) takes the best of well known therapies including Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioral, Exposure (imaginal, in-vivo), relaxation techniques, and Brief Psycho-dynamic therapy and combines them with eye movements similar to those we using during the (REM) Rapid Eye Movement phase of sleep. ART utilizes a re-scripting process called Voluntary Image Replacement (VIR) to assist clients in replacing negative images with positive ones.

The Metaphorical Moment can be inserted into the Basic ART protocol but can also be used as the format for an entire session. You will also learn additional advanced ART techniques.
This ART training will also spend time on problems such as OCD, Substance problems and phobias. It will offer further tips on how to approach these problems.
