Introduction to NARM Online Webinar: Working with Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

Friday, September 28, 2018 12:00 - 2:00 PM PST

Online Webinar

The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and clinical model for addressing complex trauma.  

There are currently very few therapeutic approaches designed specifically to address developmental trauma.  With the ACEs Study, the Trauma-Informed Care movement, and the need for addressing complex trauma - including cultural and transgenerational trauma - as helping professionals we need to stay in front of this rapidly evolving field.  

NARM is a perfect training for staying current and deepening your trauma-informed skills.  This cutting-edge model targets attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long 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.  Based on the book by NARM Foudner Dr. Laurence Heller, Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship, NARM is geared toward supporting adults and couples in building greater capacity for self-regulation and interpersonal connection.

This 2-hr online webinar will offer an overview of complex trauma from a NARM perspective.  While it is geared toward helping professionals working with complex trauma, anyone is welcome and can benefit from the information presented in the webinar.  Understanding and being able to work with developmental dynamics is critical for helping our clients, and ourselves, in the healing process.  We will look at how one’s life experience presents itself in the context of a complex, psychobiologically-driven relational framework that is often largely unconscious.  This framework, laid down by our early attachment experiences, shapes our development, who we are in the world (our Self), and how we relate to others.   When one is having difficulty shifting out of old patterns, these implicit dynamics are at play and must be addressed.  The NARM approach presents a dynamic model that has profound clinical implications for healing complex trauma.
