In this seminar, you will be introduced to the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), a specialized clinical approach for mental health professionals who work with the long-term impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Complex Trauma (C-PTSD).
NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing relational, developmental trauma, cultural and intergenerational trauma, by working with the disorganized attachment patterns that cause psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties. These early, unconscious patterns of disconnection – what NARM refers to as Adaptive Survival Styles – deeply affect our identity, emotions, physiology, behavior and relationships. Working directly with the deeply embedded neurobiological patterns of shame, self-hatred and self-sabotage, NARM provides a powerful framework for addressing the life-long impact of ACEs and C-PTSD and promoting trauma-informed care.
This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model, as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma, bridges traditional psychotherapy with somatic approaches within a context of relational practice. NARM is a mindfulness-based clinical treatment, as its method is grounded in a phenomenological approach to addressing identity and consciousness of the Self – who we truly are beneath these patterned ways of relating to ourselves and the world. Seen in this way, the NARM approach to healing complex trauma can be used as a vehicle for personal and collective transformation.
