Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a relatively new eye movement treatment developed to treat symptoms commonly associated with trauma. In 2015, ART was recognized as an effective practice for the treatment of PTSD by the National Registry of Evidenced Based Programs and Practices, a division of SAMHSA. The technique is relatively easy to learn and requires between one and three sessions in order to provide relief to a patient. Walden Behavioral care, a system of care for the treatment of eating disorders, identified ART as a potential tool to use in working with patients who experience both an eating disorder and the signs and symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We engaged Laney Rosenzweig, LMHC, the founder of ART, to conduct a three day training for nine Walden clinicians, representing three different levels of care.
This presentation reviews what we know diagnostically about PTSD and introduces the basic tenants of ART. We review the training and implementation of an ART pilot program at Walden. Results of a pilot study which reviewed pre and post results from ART for 28 eating disordered patients will be presented. Perceptions of the treating clinicians using ART and select case studies will also be presented along with next steps in the training and development of ART as an effective tool to use with individuals struggling with these disorders.
