Resource Therapy

What is Resource Therapy?

Resource Therapy, formerly known as Ego-State Therapy, is a revolutionary therapy for rapid and effective therapeutic change. Resource Therapy is a brief Parts therapy, bounded in positive psychology. Resource Therapy is based on the premise that our personality is made up of multifaceted parts, rather than being a homogeneous whole. These parts (which we all have) are called our Resources and we each have many Resources available to help us.

Resource Therapy’s power lies in its ability to treat long standing client issues immediately and effectively. Resource Therapy is a brief solution oriented parts therapy, based on the idea our personality is made up of multifaceted parts. These parts are called our Resources and we each have many Resources available to us. Resource Therapy was developed by Professor Gordon Emmerson combining his knowledge of Ego State Therapy, cognitive psychology and client experience.

Clinicians who are familiar with mind-body therapies such as Eye-Movement-Desensitization-Reprocessing (EMDR) as developed by Dr Francine Shapiro Ph.D., Brain Spotting created by David Grand, Dr Laurie Mackinnon’s Ph.D Radical Exposure Technique and Internal Family Systems originator Richard Schwartz, will likely already use Ego State Therapy. Ego State Therapy is the fore-runner to Resource Therapy. In fact it also known as Advanced Ego State for that very reason.

In a therapeutic setting Resource Therapy (RT) is a finely crafted tool of precision that gives therapists the most direct access to the part of the personality that is experiencing the presenting issue and provides effective intervention methods in order to resolve them efficiently. Thus Resource therapy addresses client’s issues in the most direct manner, with results being incredibly fast, effective, efficient and permanent. We get to the source of the client’s distress and resolve it effectively with Resource Therapy techniques.
