I decided to get ART trained because the pandemic exhausted me. I needed another tool in addition to EMDR to help me handle compassion fatigue. And it did. ART not only helps quickly process upsetting or traumatic situations, but from my clinician perspective, I can also use ART when the presenting problem is vague or the client has very little content or narrative about what they are needing. My spouse never tires of hearing me sigh with relief after a day of work and I boast about how ART got me through a tough situation or just made me feel super fulfilled.
