In today’s society, people face many challenges in their work, education, and interpersonal lives which may include grief and loss; growing up in homes where there was abuse, alcoholism or mental illness. Many more have been exposed to trauma such as natural disasters, accidents, combat, assault, rape or life threatening illnesses.
There is ever increasing understanding of the neurobiology of stress and trauma and recognition that the mind and body are not separate. Depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress are connected as much with physical health and functioning as they are with mental health and functioning. This knowledge is leading to breakthroughs in treatment approaches that focus on the interconnection of thoughts, emotions and physical functioning.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) incorporates the best of emerging clinical practices to achieve optimal healing and recovery in a shorter period of time than traditional psychotherapy.
