This introductory webinar will present an overview of the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), a cutting-edge model for addressingattachment, relational and developmental traumaAs outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s renowned book Healing Developmental Trauma, NARM is an integrative, trauma-informed approach that works with the long-term effects of early trauma, and specifically the attachment patterns that cause psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties. These early, unconscious patterns of disconnection deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships.  Learning how to work simultaneously with these diverse elements is a radical shift that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model bridges traditional psychotherapy with somatic approaches, within a context of mindful, relational practice.  Learn how clinicians are using the NARM approach to resolve life-long trauma patterns and foster post-traumatic growth in their clients.  

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be introduced to:

  1. An introduction to the field of complex trauma and the distinction between shock and developmental trauma
  2. The NARM Clinical Model: Integrating a bottom-up (somatic) and top-down (traditional psychotherapeutic) approach
  3. The NARM 4 Pillars: The Core Skills for addressing unresolved attachment, relational and developmental trauma
  4. The pitfalls in working with trauma without recognizing the complex developmental themes at play
  5. The five Adaptive Survival Styles
  6. The role of shame in complex trauma
