This workshop 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).
