TUCSON (KVOA) - As the pandemic progresses, more people have experienced anxiety and post traumatic stress disorders.
In light of this mental health battle, Tucson clinicians picked up a method that can help treat these people.
It is called Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which is usually used to help veterans and first responders.
A.R.T. International, a non-profit organization, said it used a combination of relaxation and memory visualization to reduce symptoms of anxiety.
"Being a trauma therapist and having to go back to work after, that was really difficult," LMSW Mast ART trainer Estefana Johnson said. "And my sisters had a rough time as well, but if I didn't have this tool, I don't think I would have been able to go back and do that."
The non-profit held a clinic on Friday to help those interested clinicians get certified.
