Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST) Procedures
Dr. Ignacio "Nacho" Jarero

AIP-Informed Treatment Intervention Procedures for Online Care with Individuals and Groups.

The Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST) © treatment intervention procedures in group, individual, and Web-based formats were born during humanitarian field-work and are AIP-informed, carefully field-tested, evidence-based, and user-friendly psychophysiological algorithmic symptom-focused approaches, whose references are the EMDR Integrative Group Treatment Protocol for Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR-IGTP-OTS) © and the EMDR Protocol for Recent Critical Incidents and Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR-PRECI) ©

For an extended explanation on the ASSYST treatment intervention procedures, please click here.

In a world experiencing an increased number of mental disorders, mental health conditions, or prolonged adverse experiences (e.g, ongoing or prolonged traumatic stress), the one-to-one in-office traditional mental care is not enough to meet the actual mental health needs of the worldwide population. Therefore, mental health professionals need to be able to respond to those quickly and confidently in their community and abroad. This on-demand training will give licensed mental health professionals a powerful tool to provide a rapid response to those in need.

The Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST) individual procedure is designed to focus on the client’s nervous system regulation. It is utilized in rapid response settings and offered to client’s immediately after a traumatic experience (within hours, days or weeks). Additionally, it is used in Phase 2 of EMDR therapy to help the client prepare for reprocessing by regulating their nervous system and expanding their window of tolerance before starting the reprocessing phases of EMDR.

The Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST) group procedure is designed to fill the gap between Psychological First Aid (PFA) and High-Intensity Intervention psychotherapy (e.g., EMDR, TF-CBT) after a critical incident or adverse experience when the person shows severe symptoms of psychological distress, physiological reactivity, and/or deterioration in current functioning. The group nature of this procedure allows for therapists to serve a large number of people in a short period of time.

The ASSYST-Remote for Individual changes the script language for utilizing the procedure in an online format. It includes preparatory information when seeing clients online and uses the Butterfly Hug (BH) method to safely provide bilateral stimulation with the client. A demonstration video is also provided.

The ASSYST-Remote for Groups teaches participants how to offer the ASSYST in a group setting online. Providing online interventions can be tricky, especially with multiple people to care for simultaneously. This script is proven to work and we will teach you how, along with a demonstration video.

Training Overview:

These treatment procedures are specifically designed to provide in-person or online support to clients who present Acute Stress Disorder (ASD) or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) intense psychological distress and/or physiological/somatic reactivity caused by the disorder’s intrusion symptoms associated with the traumatic event(s) or adverse experience(s) memories.

For example, recurrent memories of the adverse experience(s) that includes one or more of the following components:

  • Sensory (e.g., images, smells, sounds, touch or be touched, taste).
  • Emotional (physical sensations associated with affective states).
  • Physiological (visceral sensations: vomit sensation, sense of heat for a burn victim, shortness of breath for a near-drowning experience survivor).

The ASSYST© procedures are Low-Intensity-Interventions (LII) that give us the possibility of direct, non-intrusive, physiological engagement with the client’s distressing/ pathogenic memories and their original components causing the nervous system hyperactivation (e.g., sensory, emotional, and physiological encoded information).

​Low-Intensity- Interventions (LII) are treatments with low usage of a specialized therapist’s time or brief versions of evidence-based approaches (max 6 sessions). LII are less resource-intensive, less expensive, less complex, shorter, effective, efficient, and more accessible than high-intensity treatments (face-to-face psychotherapy provided by a mental health specialist over extended periods of time).

The ASSYST© procedures can be administered within the first hours (Critical Care), days (Rapid Response) or first three months (Early Intervention), after an adverse experience, or as an early intervention to approach ongoing traumatic stress situations, when the person shows severe symptoms of psychological distress, physiological reactivity, and/or deterioration in current functioning, using a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant video program.

During the standard EMDR protocol preparation phase, the ASSYST Individual could increase the prevention of dissociative reactions (e.g., numb/disconnected, shutdown, collapse, fainting) while reprocessing pathogenic memories by reducing the nervous system sympathetic branch hyperactivation, produced by a specific memory component (e.g., freeze response when remembering the worst image, the screams of the people, or the smell of the aggressor), keeping the patients inside their window of tolerance.

The objective of these procedures is focused on the client’s nervous system sympathetic branch hyperactivation regulation through the reduction or removal of the activation produced by the sensory, emotional, or physiological components of the distressing/ pathogenic memories of the adverse experience(s) to achieve optimal levels of nervous system activation; thus, facilitating the AIP system the subsequent adaptive processing of the information

The ASSYST© procedures fill the gap between Psychological First Aid (PFA) and High-Intensity Intervention psychotherapy (e.g., EMDR) after a critical incident or adverse experience when the person shows severe symptoms of psychological distress, physiological reactivity, and/or deterioration in current functioning.

These procedures must be administered within a Stepped Care Context to help the person achieve a state of adaptive functioning or, via screening, to facilitate access to High-Intensity Intervention psychotherapy when necessary.

Examples of online and in-person work with the ASSYST treatment procedures:

  • Since March 2022, we have been collaborating with the great work EMDR Europe has done addressing the Ukrainian population’s mental health needs with our ASSYST
    Humanitarian Psychosocial Project (HPP). As of November 29, 2022, our ASSYST HPP leader in Europe, Zuzana Cepelíková, reported that she and her team have trained on a pro-bono base over 5,000 (five thousand) clinicians from Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, and Hungary and that those clinicians have been using the ASSYST procedures to successfully alleviate the suffering of countless Ukrainian children, adolescents, and adults’ refugees.
  • During 2020 & 2021, a total of 1,821 persons from the UK, USA, and Latin America received the ASSYT Remote Procedures pro-bono.
  • Three days after the September 19, 2017 earthquake in Mexico City.
  • Thirteen days after the August 3, 2019 mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.
  • Shortly after the September 2019 Hurricane Dorian that devastated the Bahamas.
  • Immediately after the October 2019 and November 2019 riots and wave of terror in Chile and Bolivia, respectively.
  • With First Responders (firefighters and medical personnel) and civilians who survived the January 23, 2019, gas explosion in Villa El Salvador, Peru.
  • One day after the February 21, 2020, landslide in Cochabamba, Bolivia that affected 188 families.
  • With immigrants in the United States three days after their escape from 21 days of organized crime’ captivity (2019).
  • Shortly after the June 24, 2021, most powerful Tornado in the Czech Republic (Hodonin, South Moravia).
  • With Mental Health practitioners that provided support after a school was bombed outside of Kabul in Afghanistan on May 8, 2021. At least 90 girls were killed.
  • With hundreds of Haitian and Central American refugees in Mexico City during 2021 and 2022.
  • With Ukrainian families seeking for asylum in Vancouver, Canada in the year 2022.

Testimonials from Attendees

100% recommend! All of their trainings are awesome! I also recently did the one on ongoing traumatic stress, which teaches you the PRECI and other protocols Definitely changed the way I do EMDR

Molly Roth

Colleagues – we just finished a remote group ASSYST offering – participants were surprised at the impact…

one person had an aha moment, other talked about the surprising thing that came up and how quickly things dropped in terms of distress levels…

Rebecca Rosenblum

“Dr. Jarero’s training really helped me with my work at our emergency shelter. The ASSYST procedure has helped me to stabilize some of the teens I see right after they enter the shelter. The ASSYST allows for stabilization before they begin their trauma work and it helps build rapport with the clients in a way where they know that you as a clinician can assist them through this difficult time. I really enjoyed Dr. Jarero’s training not just because of the protocols but also his delivery. He was so engaging that it did not even feel like a training.”

Lizet Lizardo, M.A., LPC-Intern

Tis the season to use the ASSYST! 3 times today. And all with success

Charissa Fry

The ASSYST is really helpful protocol!! Especially done remotely

Rebecca DuLac Hogg

Clinicians in our agency are using ASSYST with recent traumaS (witnessing fatal accidents, domestic violence assaults, etc) to reduce reactivity to recent event with clients with complex trauma history as well.

Michelle Spurgeon Torres

Hey everyone! some of you may have heard that Nacho and I were able to join a team of therapists in El Paso to conduct a Rapid response Team using the ASSYST group and individual producers related to those affected by the recent Walmart shooting. We were able to respond within 13 days of the event!

Kelly Smyth Dent

“I am deeply grateful and trust the ASSYST procedures as a powerful tool for a rapid and effective response to traumatic events. The ASSYST procedures  allows us to feel confident that with our intervention, sustained in a very clear and fluid procedures, we will achieve the reduction of intense patient disturbance, without the need to know precisely the details of the event, facilitating to  our patients the natural processing of the traumatic event, which in our case were severe situations of human rights violations.”

Dra María Eugenia Hurtado

“Unfortunately it happens often at the agency level that families or individuals need support to heal from trauma, but there are often many life stressors and instability that make it difficult to provide therapy. Your resources have helped me more confidently treatment plan for them and the children have been very interested in the skills.  They offer their own SUDs without prompting and are comfortable with using the butterfly hug for themselves.  They appear comfortable engaging and have been able to share good memories about their (deceased) father as well.”
