About NARM

The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and practical map for navigating the complexities of relational, developmental, and attachment trauma.  NARM™ brings shock trauma skills into a coherent approach for working with developmental trauma, and works with the link between psychological issues and the body.   It is a both a psychodynamic and nervous system based approach designed to help build clients’ capacity for self-regulation and interpersonal connection.  The 2016-18 San Francisco Bay Area NARM™ training will be presented by Dr. Laurence Heller, author of Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image, and the Capacity for Relationship.

NARM™ Introductory Online Webinar

Brad Kammer is an international practitioner and trainer in somatic psychotherapy.   A psychotherapist, NARM Practitioner and Somatic Experiencing practitioner with a private practice in northern California, Brad has trained and taught with Dr. Laurence Heller and is deeply steeped in in the fields of somatic psychology and interpersonal neurobiology.

This 2-hr online webinar will offer an overview of developmental 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).

Webinar Format:

  • Overview of NARM’s theoretical and clinical approach to developmental trauma
  • Lecture and experiential exercises on each of the five adaptive survival styles
  • Video demonstrations of Dr. Laurence Heller using the NARM™ approach
  • Orientation to the 2-year NARM Practitioner Training Program
  • Q&As and Discussion

NARM™ is open to licensed therapists and somatic practitioners interested in working with developmental trauma.
