Rapid Resolution Therapy® was developed by Jon Connelly, LCSW, PhD. It is a form of hypnosis that “eliminates the ongoing effect stemming from disturbing or painful experiences.” This method involves both a hypnotic or suggestive component as well as trauma-resolving component. What makes it stand apart is that the trauma is resolved gently and painlessly allowing inner conflicts that have “blocked desires to disappear.” Through the use of metaphor, mental reframing and tapping into the power of the subconscious mind to work symbolically, Rapid Resolution Therapy® “eliminates the negative emotional or behavioral influence of traumatic events,” whether these experiences are remembered, repressed or forgotten. It creates shifts in the way people respond to memories, circumstances and social circumstances in 1-2 sessions. Unlike other forms of treatment, with Rapid Resolution it is not necessary to relive past events or experience any pain.
