David Ebaugh is a Portland, Oregon trauma therapist trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy or ART, specializing in recovery from PTSD and anxietyQuoted From: https://traumafocusedtherapy.com/art/
"Accelerated Resolution Therapy (say "A-R-T") is an innovative exposure-based treatment derived from EMDR, but it has a tighter protocol, is more directive, is more procedural and easier to learn in a three day training. It is delivered in just one to five sessions and requires no homework or need to learn special skills. ART is reported to be effective, efficient, easy on patients, and easy on clinicians.
ART was developed in 2008 by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Laney Rosenzweig. Laney first used the ART technique successfully to treat a client with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) during a one-hour session. Since then, the procedure has been refined to help individuals overcome issues related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, physical and sexual abuse, common workplace anxiety, depression, eating disorders, unresolved complicated grief, chronic pain, and phobias.
Accelerated Resolution Therapy has been clinically demonstrated to resolve PTSD symptoms in an average of four sessions, and often in one session. No other current therapy has shown this sort of dramatic result. ART is currently being used in four US Army hospitals, with more therapists at other military hospitals undergoing training. Significantly, ART has recently been recognized as an "evidence-based practice" by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the Federal government."
