Accelerated Resolution Therapy

Accelerated Resolution Therapy is an eye-movement technique that is evidence-based for the treatment of trauma and is currently being studied for application to many other mental health concerns. Eye movements have been used in counseling sessions for many years. There is a significant body of evidence supporting the finding that inducing rapid eye movement while awake helps the brain process and resolve psychological issues. Eye movements also create relaxation in the body, just as rapid eye movement helps us sleep during REM sleep. Accelerated Resolution Therapy is designed for a therapist to guide you through processing specific scenes or events from the past that may still be troubling you. There are also ways for your counselor to help you overcome fears, phobias, and other problematic behaviors through the use of eye movements.

Additionally, eye movements provide a very effective way to aid in sleep and to help relieve physical pain symptoms naturally. Yolanda is currently serving on a research study team at the University of South Florida College of Nursing to study the effectiveness of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with symptoms including, depression, anxiety, sleep dysfunction and other physical and psychological symptoms.
