Event Details

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.

Topics covered

  • The reciprocal relationship between nervous system dysregulation and identity distortion
  • The five basic biological needs and their developmental psychological significance
  • The function of adaptive survival strategies in regard to unmet basic needs
  • The five adaptive survival strategies in NARM, their corresponding identity distortions and how they influence adult life
  • Working in present time, the significance of dual awareness and somatic mindfulness
  • The implicit intention of emotions and their psychobiological completion
  • The four pillars of process work
  • The NARM healing cycle and integration top-down and bottom-up
  • Orientation: the NARM training course for therapists

The seminar includes some presentations, practical exercises in small groups, self-awareness exercises, demo sessions, questions and answers, discussion.
