Introduction to NARM™ ONLINE WEBINAR
with Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC
Friday, October 20, 2017
12 pm – 2 pm PST (west-coast); 3 pm – 5 pm EST (east-coast)
The NeuroAffective Relational Model™ (NARM™) is a powerful theoretical and clinical model for navigating the complexities of relational, developmental, and attachment trauma. NARM™ is an integrative approach that offers a coherent model 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/somatically-based approach designed to help build clients’ capacity for self-regulation and interpersonal connection.
If you are interested in deeper studying of NARM, or being trained as a NARM Practitioner, this will be a great opportunity to get more information about the NARM Practitioner Trainings being offered around North America. The following NARM™ trainings are still open for enrollment: Chicago, Illinois; Maui Hawaii; Austin, Texas; Durham, North Carolina and Berkeley, California (click on the respective city for more information about each specific training.) More trainings are coming to other areas of North America over the next few years! For more about European NARM Trainings: drlaurenceheller.com
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).
