more on ART:
- ART is a therapy intervention that provides rapid recovery from trauma and behavioral health problems. ART is designed to reprogram the way the brain stores distressing memories and images so they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional symptoms. ART often provides relief within 1-5 sessions. In fact, ART allows trauma to be addressed without having to talk about the details of the life events.
- ART uses bilateral stimulation through eye movements to reprocess negative and upsetting images in the brain. The eye movements used in ART are similar to the eye movements that occur during dreaming. The rescripting of negative memories and/or problem behaviors with voluntary image replacement allows for the body to stop the emotional and behavioral triggering that is occuring in the present. ART can be used to address past trauma and grief, as well problematic symptoms, including anxiety, depression, fears/phobias, PTSD, addiction, co-dependency, stress, pain management, ADHD, and more.
- The amygdala, which is the part of the brain that deals with emotions and memories of fear, seems to readily accept metaphors and metaphorical solutions. Thus, ART can be a fun and creative process.
- ART is an evidenced-based form of psycho-therapy with roots in the following therapies: Exposure Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Psycho-Dynamic Therapy, and Guided Imagry. ART combines long respected, sound treatment practices with safe and effective methods developed by Lainey Rosenzweig, MS, LMFT, and validated by current scientific research studdies conducted by the University of South Florida.
