Introduction to NARM Online Webinar: Working with Complex Trauma

Monday, October 29, 2018 9:00 - 11:00 AM PDT

Online Webinar

The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and clinical model for navigating the complexities of attachment, relational, and developmental trauma.  Using the findings of the ACEs Study and other research on trauma, NARM offers an integrative approach for working with complex trauma, and the link between psychological issues and the body.   It is a mindfulness-based, deeply relational model that bridges psychodynamic and somatic approaches.  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.  Understanding and being able to work with developmental dynamics is critical for helping our clients in their healing process.  We will look at how clients’ life experiences present themselves 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 clients are having difficulty shifting out of patterns of dysregulation, these implicit dynamics are at play and must be addressed.  The NARM approach weaves together a somatic or body-based (bottom-up) process while simultaneously working with clients’ identity and relational dynamics (top-down).
