Affect Regulation Therapy (A.R.T.) consistently provides rapid results, including reduced stress levels, improvement in mood and emotion regulation and increased commitment to therapy. Using a combination of standard psychotherapy methods from developmental, psychodynamic and behavioural psychology, A.R.T. improves client outcomes and is a suitable support for most mental healthcare programs.

Through A.R.T. clients learn to regulate mood and control positive and negative arousal states using three mediums for emotional processing, the cognitive, emotional and the body based self systems. You’ll see immediate and sustained results in clients’ abilities to control affect states and achieve situation appropriate emotional responses.
