ART: Accelerated Resolution Therapy & PTSD

Kevin E. Kip, Ph.D. is a tenured Distinguished Health Professor, epidemiologist, and biostatistician with 18 years of experience on U.S. Federal, Department of Defense, and industry-funded studies. His background is interdisciplinary with more than 170 peer-reviewed publications, and his presentation of new Accelerated Resolution Therapy treatment options is at once engaging, scientifically exciting and heartfelt.

With multi-million dollar funding from the U.S. Department of Defense, he established the Research to Improve Emotional Health/Quality of Life of Service Members with Disabilities, (RESTORE LIVES) Center at the University of South Florida. Through this Center, he is the leading researcher worldwide in the study of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), an emerging, brief, and evidence-based method of psychotherapy for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related comorbidities.

His Prior Work

Dr. Kip is previous Principal Investigator of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Dynamic Registry of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) which enrolled approximately 10,000 patients. He was a member of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) – Committee to Review the Health Effects in Vietnam Veterans of Exposure to Herbicides. Dr. Kip is a frequent grant reviewer for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is studying a range of complementary and alternative medicine therapies for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.

This discussion is, in a word – transformational. Must listen!

Ed Note: Sign up below to stay tuned for another remarkably interesting interview with Kelly Breeding MSW, Executive Director of ART International, the training and resource center for ART training and treatment services. If you would like treatment or training, she will tell us more about their remarkably predictive results at ART International for those stuck alone, out on the road of life, with no pathway home. PTSD is a biomedical and emotional problem. Kelly will go live at http://corebrainjournal.com/205 on March 22, ’18.

Our Next CoreBrain Journal Episode

202 Dr. Laura D Varga, DAOM. Chapel Hill, NC. She lived on both the East and West Coasts. She worked in research at UPENN and UCSD, holds a top US degree in East Asian Medicine [EAM], DAOM from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. She’s worked with patients since 2010. After five years practicing on my own in East Asian and then adding functional medicine, she is best at seeing the big picture – combining the holistic view of EAM with my research background.

“I love and am in awe of nature – hiking with my dogs, sailing, swimming in the ocean. I cannot believe it took me five years to see the big picture. I have learned a lot from your guests on CBJ and wanted to give back. In EAM mental/emotional health is inextricably linked to physical health.”

  • Interesting, Important and helpful
    April 28, 2018 by J.M.I from Sweden

    I am listening in from Sweden, and I learn so much from Dr Parker and his interesting guests. Sadly, information like this is hard to find amongst practitioners here, and underlying factors to symptoms are of little interest. I am thankful to Dr Parker dedicating time in spreading word about helping people with psycological dysfunctions from a non conventional angle. Thank you!

  • Core Brain Journal--Neuropsychology
    May 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States

    Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.

  • Exceptional interviews !!
    May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States

    Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.

  • Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!
    April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States

    I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!

  • Top quality information
    February 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland

    As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information

  • Fascinating
    February 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States

    If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.

  • My Brain Thanks You!
    January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States

    Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!

  • Flipping Junkie Review
    December 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States

    Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!

  • “How I Found Myself” Dean Roberts
    December 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States

    I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!

  • I may be a geek...
