Presented by Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC

This unique workshop is for anyone interested in seeing how NARM works for healing attachment, relational and developmental trauma. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn first-hand how to apply NARM theory and skills in working with elements of Complex Trauma including shame, guilt, anxiety, depression, helplessness, self-criticism and self-hatred.

Brad will begin the workshop by providing a basic overview of NARM theory and skills.  He will then present a video of a NARM demonstration session and deconstruct the session using NARM principles and his observations and reflections.  He will then take time for questions and comments from participants.

For those that are interested in applying a somatic approach to resolving the impact of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and C-PTSD (Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), this workshop will demonstrate the transformative power of NeuroAffective Relational Model for healing Complex Trauma.

Main Points of Workshop:

  • The NeuroAffective Relational Model for addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Complex Trauma (C-PTSD)

  • The distinction between therapeutic models that address shock versus developmental trauma

  • The pitfalls of working with all forms of trauma without recognizing the complex developmental themes running in the background

  • NARM’s 4 Pillar Model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma

  • Building skills of dual awareness and somatic mindfulness

  • Using a bottom-up (body-based) and top-down (cognitive or identity-based) therapeutic approach

Take Aways:

- Participants will be able to identify the main theory and skills of NARM.

- Participants will be able to identify, discuss and apply the NARM approach to addressing developmental trauma.

- Participants will be able to differentiate between using therapeutic skills for shock versus developmental trauma.

- Participants will be able to summarize, apply and practice the NARM 4 Pillars.
