Rapid resolution therapy (RRT) is a psychotherapy technique that aims to assist individuals who’ve experienced trauma to overcome their ongoing symptoms, develop a sense of security, and minimize trauma triggers. RRT utilizes guided imagery, hypnosis, storytelling, and other forms of talk therapy to resolve troubling thoughts, feelings, and behaviors related to their trauma. RRT was initially developed to treat combat veterans and sexual abuse victims, but it is now more widely used.
At Harmony Hills, individuals in our trauma resolution therapy program can benefit from RRT as part of a comprehensive approach to treating trauma and mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and more. Reach out to our team at 855.494.0357 to discover how you can benefit from rapid resolution trauma therapy.
How Does RRT Work?
Rapid resolution trauma therapy is similar to EMDR therapy in that it relies on neurological reframing to process traumatic events. Thoughts and memories of trauma can provoke painful emotions. A specially trained RRT therapist provides a safe space for clients to reprocess trauma through hypnosis, guided imagery, and self-soothing techniques to process trauma and learn new coping mechanisms.
In essence, RRT helps build new neural pathways that eliminate the unhealthy automatic responses to trauma a person has developed. As a result, past emotional pain and reactions are eliminated, so the individual becomes unaffected by old triggers.
What Are the Benefits of RRT?
Although it is a newer therapy, research on rapid resolution therapy indicates that it is scientifically sound as an effective trauma resolution therapy. Benefits of RRT include:
- It works quickly, producing improvements within about six sessions
- It is effective at treating a wide range of mental health issues
- Positive changes are identifiable almost immediately
- It is safe and non-invasive
- It does not require clients to relive past trauma or talk about it in detail
RRT pairs well with numerous other evidence-based therapies, including EMDR, cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and holistic approaches such as mindfulness, meditation, and yoga.
Signs You Can Benefit from Rapid Resolution Trauma Therapy
The effects of trauma are far-reaching and impact all areas of life. Everyone experiences trauma differently, and rapid resolution trauma therapy accounts for that by being adaptable to meet individual needs. Signs you can benefit from RRT include common physical and psychological symptoms associated with trauma, such as:
- Mood swings, irritability, or anger
- Confusion or difficulty concentrating
- Fatigue and sleep disturbances, including nightmares and insomnia
- Being easily startled, worried, or fearful
- Headaches, digestive issues, and body aches
- Withdrawal or social isolation
- Feeling sad, hopeless, disconnected, or numb
Many trauma victims experience guilt, shame, or self-blame, particularly when they have experienced physical, psychological, or sexual abuse. The highly skilled multidisciplinary treatment team at Harmony Hills’ trauma resolution therapy program understands the effects of trauma. Here, we provide a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment where you can heal and grow.
