Friday, Mar. 3, 2023
9:00 am - 1:15 pm
Qualifies for 4 CEs (4 hours of instruction with one 15-minute break)
This webinar will introduce you to the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) for addressing adverse childhood experiences and resolving complex trauma. NARM is a promising therapeutic modality for addressing life-long psychobiological symptoms and interpersonal difficulties that arise from unresolved attachment, relational, developmental, cultural and intergenerational trauma.
NARM weaves together a “bottom-up” and “top-down” approach, integrating somatic, psychodynamic and relational clinical skills, that helps clients address the adaptive survival styles they’ve used to manage the impact of ACEs and C-PTSD. Offering a new perspective on post-traumatic growth, focusing on relational health and heartfulness, NARM provides a powerful model for supporting personal and collective transformation.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
Identify how the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) fits into the current field of Trauma-Informed therapeutic approaches.
- Differentiate NARM from other Trauma-Informed therapeutic approaches.
- Differentiate between shock trauma (PTSD) and developmental/complex trauma (C-PTSD).
- Understand the life-long impacts of unresolved adverse childhood experiences and complex trauma from a NARM perspective.
- Identify the 5 NARM Adaptive Survival Styles.
- Identify the NARM Relational Model.
- Identify the NARM 4 Pillars model.
- Identify the NARM focus on Heartfulness and Post-Traumatic Growth.
