ASSYST (Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization) - Remote Teletherapy
ASSYST-Remote is focused on working acute stress and how those experiences are stored in our memory network. This therapy helps bring stabilization and calm to a charged nervous system.
What is a Memory Network?
Our Memory network is the way in which our brain stores our experiences with other similar memories. Most memories are stored without an issue, however, adverse life experiences can disrupt this system from functioning as it should. This causes the images, sounds, emotions, and physical sensations of the memory to store incorrectly in our brain.
What are the steps?
ASSYST-Remote is an intensive therapy aimed to have anywhere from 3-5 processing sessions within a day or multiple days back to back.
ASSYST-Remote is completed through Teletherapy (video) methods from the convenience of your home or other confidential location.
This therapy can be taxing and therefore may be ideal for you to take a short nap between each processing session. Sleep plays a crucial role in memory consolidation and continued processing.
What does my nervous system have to do with it?
Our sympathetic nervous system responds to situations that could be a threat and activates to protect us through fight or flight responses. This causes for a full body response releasing cortisol and adrenaline, as well as a rapid heartbeat and shortness of breath.
The goal of ASSYST - Remote is to acknowledge the thoughts or emotions that are present for you from the experience and reduce the distress that is felt in your daily life.
