The NeuroAffective Relational Model for Healing Developmental Trauma
This workshop provides an overview of developmental trauma from the perspective of the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) and introduces participants to the basic concepts of NARM's theoretical and clinical approach.
NARM combines psychodynamic and somatic approaches to the treatment of developmental trauma. With an inherent understanding of the functional unity of biological and psychological development inherent in both concept and methodology, NARM works with early patterns of attachment loss that deeply influence our identity, our emotions, our physiology, our relationships, and our behavior. The approach is resource-oriented, non-regressive, non-cathartic and non-pathologizing. Working simultaneously with these different aspects on both the physical and psychological levels of being human is a significant expansion of perspectives for working with both relational and attachment traumas.
