What are Accelerated Resolution Brainspotting (BSP), BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT) & Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)? Such therapies are more efficient at improving the mental health challenges we face in our everyday lives.
ACCELERATED RESOLUTION THERAPY (ART)
Accelerate Resolution Therapy rapidly moves clients beyond the place where they are stuck traumatic experiences toward growth and positive changes. The process is very straightforward, using relaxing eye movements and a technique called Voluntary Memory/Image Replacement to change the way in which the negative images are stored in the brain. The treatment is grounded in well-established psychotherapy techniques, and the end result is that traumas and difficult life experiences will no longer trigger strong emotions or physical reactions. Importantly, clients do not even have to talk about their traumas or difficult life experiences with the therapist to achieve recovery.
Brainspotting is an advanced therapy for treating mental health challenges and trauma that was discovered in the early 2000s by David Grand, PhD, a former EMDR therapist and trainer. This therapy quickly minimizes trauma, performance blocks, anxiety, depression and many other challenges by accessing a specific brainspot. It has been shown to be more effective than EMDR in recent studies.
During BSP, the therapist helps the client find the spot in the brain through a specific eye position that accesses the client's issue allowing the client's brain to quickly process and reduce unwanted triggers and symptoms.

EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION & REPROCESSING (EMDR)
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing was created in the late 1980s by Francine Shapiro, who discovered that moving her eyes from side to side reduced her own trauma. Since then, EMDR has become one of the most successful evidence based therapies for treating trauma and other mental health issues. Through back-and-forth eye movements, EMDR helps the brain and body process trauma to quickly reduce negative symptoms and behaviors.
