Course Description:

Your work with trauma can resolve the pain of past, restore hope and help survivors reclaim their lives.

But treatment can take months or years to conclude, increasing the likelihood of clients discontinuing therapy. And the cognitive focus of many approaches forces clients to relive traumatic experiences, allowing disturbing images to overwhelm them and impede therapeutic progress. The work can be heartbreaking and the stress of sharing in the nightmare can burn you out – you wish that you could rapidly facilitate healing without making your clients relive the trauma again and again.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) presents a paradigm shift in the treatment of trauma. ART allows you to efficiently and consistently reduce symptomology and quickly achieve positive treatment outcomes by reprogramming the intrusive traumatic images damaging clients’ lives. And it can all be done without requiring them to verbalize the details of their trauma.

Attend this seminar and learn how this creative and flexible protocol combines a directive approach with eye movements to extinguish the traumatic aspects of the disturbing scenes clients can’t get out of their heads and replace them with safe and positive new mental associations.

Sign up today and learn how Accelerated Resolution Therapy can renew your passion for this critical work, bring greater healing to clients who struggle to share their traumatic experiences, and empower you to safely bring faster relief to survivors without the pain of reliving the trauma!
Objectives:

  1. Analyze how memories are processed and stored and communicate why this is important in treating trauma.
  2. Articulate how negative images trigger powerful emotional reactions and physical symptomology in trauma survivors.
  3. Determine what kinds of clients ART is appropriate for and understand considerations for using ART in work with clients with dissociation.
  4. Characterize how metaphor can be used creatively in treatment to help clients overcome the fear of change.
  5. Specify how eye movements can be used with clients to alleviate negative sensations associated with anxiety and stress.
  6. Establish the role of the reconsolidation window in reshaping painful experiences of those who have experienced trauma.

Currently, she maintains a private practice in Connecticut, is an on-call trauma specialist for several employee assistant programs and trains mental health professionals in ART.
