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

    Wednesday, December 19, 2018 10:00 AM - 12:00 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.

    Webinar Format:

    • Overview of NARM’s theoretical and clinical approach to attachment, relational and developmental trauma
    • Complex Trauma: Differentiating between Shock and Developmental Trauma
    • Lecture and experiential exercises on each of the five adaptive survival styles

    NARM Practitioner Training - Palm Beach, Florida MODULE 1

    January 3, 2019

    Family First Adolescent Services – Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

    The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

    THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

    NARM is a cutting-edge model for addressing attachment, relational and developmental trauma, by working with the attachment patterns that cause life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model - as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image and the Capacity for Relationship - emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness-based approaches.  NARM bridges traditional psychotherapy (“top-down”) with somatic approaches (“bottom-up”) within a context of relational practice.  

    NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).  

    For more information: www.narmtraining.com


    Course Objectives:

    • A comprehensive theory and skills for addressing the long-term effects of unresolved childhood trauma (ACEs).
    • How to address the complex interplay between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
    • The clinical skills needed to work with attachment, relational and developmental trauma.
    • Differentiating the skills necessary for addressing shock trauma versus complex trauma.
    • Working with shame, guilt, low self-esteem, chronic self-judgment, self-hatred, and other psychobiological symptoms.
    • How to work moment-by-moment with early adaptive survival styles that, while once life-saving, distort clients’ current life experience.
    • When to work ‘bottom-up’, when to work ‘top-down’, and how to work with both simultaneously to meet the special challenges of complex trauma.
    • How to support clients with a mindful and progressive process of disidentification from identity distortions.
    • A new, coherent theory for working with affect and emotions, which aims to support their psychobiological completion.
    • A powerful relational model that strengthens clinical effectiveness by highlighting the interpersonal nature of the therapeutic process.

    THE 25th IIBA International Conference

    The title of the Conference "A bioenergetic view of love, healing, connection and authenticity" highlights very relevant themes in a world which is changing too fast. People's lives are undergoing profound changes they may not understand. In many countries there are precarious economic and social conditions and the expectations for the younger generations are uncertain. People's inner landscapes have also changed, even more precocious forms of narcissism are present and pervasive, and traumatic attachments destroy the possibility of secure connections.

    All this invites us to reflect, to update our therapeutic practice in continuity with our theoretical model. Bioenergetic Analysis has much to say and to offer both from a therapeutic and from a sociological perspective.


    When: May 22 - 26, 2019
    Where: Torres Vedras (Portugal)
