The NeuroAffective Relational Model ™ (NARM™) is a theoretical and skills-based model that is used in working with developmental, relational, and attachment trauma. It integrates psychodynamic and somatic based approaches working with the integration between psychological and nervous system regulation. In this way, NARM™ targets both unconscious and conscious trauma.
In developmental trauma, individuals incorporate the environmental failure they have experienced in a top -own process of distorted identifications and a bottom-up process of disturbed regulation. NARM™ is an integrated top-down and bottom up approach. Knowing how to work with the complex interplay between the nervous system and identifications greatly expands overall therapeutic effectiveness.
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).
