Accelerated Resolution Therapy®

ART International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created and is supported by the Chris T. Sullivan Foundation as well as private funding sources. The mission of ART International is to support innovative research, clinician training and education, and assist with access to Accelerated Resolution Therapy for individuals suffering from trauma. The vision of ART International is to increase services worldwide for individuals who suffer from trauma-related symptoms who are living untreated or experiencing unsuccessful treatment by providing the most effective and innovative therapeutic method in a rapid recovery setting.
Accelerated Resolution Therpay (ART) is an evidence–based novel psychotherapy that fosters rapid recovery by reprogramming how the brain stores traumatic memories and imagery. ART has roots in and includes elements of existing evidenced-based modalities. The treatment program incorporates memory visualization techniques that are enhanced by the use of horizontal eye movements, as well as memory reconsolidation, a way in which new information is incorporated into existing memories. Studies to date have shown ART to be effective in 1-5 sessions with the average length being four sessions.
