    An Introduction to Accelerated 

    Resolution Therapy (ART)

    Thursday, July 21st

    3PM - 5PM

    Description

    Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) is an elegant combination of multiple approaches (in one session) found to be beneficial in treating many psychopathologies. Research has shown that symptoms of PTSD can often be reduced or eliminated in 3-5 sessions. Therapists report they enjoy sessions where clients do not need to talk about their traumas, thereby reducing secondary traumatization for the clinician.

    Learning Objectives

    Objective 1 - Participants will be able to describe Accelerated Resolution Therapy.

    Objective 2 - Participants will be able to list 4 components of effective trauma focused psychotherapy.

    Objective 3 - Participants will be able to identify 2 components of ART that facilitate change.

    Objective 4 - Participants will be able to identify 1 difference between ART and EMDR.
