EVENT DESCRIPTION:

The NeuroAffective Relational Model™ (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and clinical model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma. There are currently very few therapeutic approaches designed specifically to address Complex Trauma (C-PTSD). With the growing recognition of the ACEs Study, the Trauma-Informed Care movement, and the need for addressing Complex Trauma - including cultural and intergenerational trauma - it is essential for helping professionals to stay in front of this rapidly evolving field.

NARM™ is an ideal 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™ Founder 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, couples and families in building greater capacity for self-regulation and interpersonal connection.

This free online webinar will offer an overview of complex trauma from a refined developmental 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.
