WHAT IS NARM™
Connection: Our Deepest Desire & Greatest Fear
The NeuroAffective Relational Model(NARM) is an advanced clinical training for mental health professionals who work with complex trauma. 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. 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. As such, NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the nature of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).

Work in the Present Moment
with Dr. Laurence Heller and Brad Kammer
A gift at the end of the year for listeners from the NARM Training Institute! We share with you a special thematic online seminar from the NARM Inner Circle online program. The webinar provides a window into the Inner Circle learning community where professionals from around the world meet to learn more about the NARM Approach to Complex Trauma. In this session: The NARM Approach and Working in the Present, NARM creator Dr. Laurence Heller and NARM approach trainer Brad Kammer explore how NARM uses a work-related phenomenological approach to solving psychobiological patterns in developmental trauma. The speakers touch on areas such as: how childhood traumas appear in here and now, how we are currently working with personal history and traumatic memories, how to avoid re-acting the wound and supporting wound healing within the healing relationship, and the spiritual dimensions of the NARM approach to supporting post-traumatic development.
Are you a mental health professional considering further training in Complex Trauma? Check out what Nicole Seidman, a new NARM Therapist, say about the impact NARM has had in her work.
«…An excellent training! It provides therapists with significant tools for their work as well as for their personal development. An approach that brings safety to the healing process. It protects the therapist from over-involvement and helps the client to get the distance he/she needs to renegotiate any traumatic experiences. A unique experience, an exciting journey!»
«…For me it's been a fulfilling experience so far. It has certainly affected the way I work without even being able to say that I have acquired the knowledge I have been taught so far.»
«…The NARM training has been a nourishing process of learning and growth for me. NARM itself is a beautiful and practical model of how life works, and the Greece training program helped me to integrate theory and practice with these crucial themes of human development.»
