The Institute for Rapid Resolution Therapy (IRRT) announces the launch of its second evidence-based outcome study of the efficacy of Rapid Resolution Therapy(TM) (RRT).

We are inviting qualified licensed and certified RRT Therapists across the country and their clients who have experienced trauma to participate in the study.Clients will be asked to complete several valid and reliable psychological instruments to measure both pre-pretreatment and post-treatment symptomology.
