The Accelerated Recovery Program (ARP) is a uniquely designed five-session treatment/ training protocol to assist health-care professionals in resolving their symptoms of compassion fatigue (primary traumatic stress + secondary traumatic stress + burnout). This goal is accomplished by utilizing a video-enhanced narrative protocol as well as one or more of the "neoteric" therapies (e.g., EMDR, TIR, TFT, VKD, T-LTT). This powerful program also assists these professionals in developing prevention and resiliency skills to avoid future problems associated with compassion fatigue. However, the program is not simply another treatment method. It is designed to challenge, as well as assist, the health-care professional to develop a professional and personal lifestyle that creates self-validation and a non-anxious presence--two crucial ingredients toward resiliency of compassion fatigue. The ARP asks the participant to examine his/her personal "mission" to develop understanding of how and where s/he is stepping outside of his/her integrity and return to congruence. In addition, the program will challenge the care-giver to become more intentional and lessen his/her reactivity in both personal and professional spheres. It is difficult and deeply enriching work.

Compassion Unlimited, Inc. provides individual treatment in the Accelerated Recovery Program for Compassion Fatigue. This manualized treatment program is the only evidenced-based treatment in the world that has demonstrated effectiveness in treating the symptoms of compassion fatigue and burnout. This treatment/training is offered in five sessions for a total of 10-12 hours. It can be completed in one-week or can be spread out over weeks or even months. Many caregivers from Oklahoma City, New York City, Bosnia, and South Africa have been treated using the ARP—each reporting a recovery from the symptoms of compassion fatigue.
