NARM Practitioner Training - Palm Beach, Florida MODULE 1

Family First Adolescent Services

The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM): A Practitioner Training for Healing Attachment, Relational & Developmental Trauma

Palm Beach Gardens – Family First Adolescent Services

THE NARM™ Practitioner Training is an advanced clinical training for the treatment of complex trauma.  Enrollment is open to psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, and other health care professionals who work with trauma.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis.

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.  This developmentally-oriented, neuroscientifically-informed model, as outlined in Dr. Laurence Heller’s book Healing Developmental Trauma, emerged out of earlier psychotherapeutic orientations including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing, as well as mindfulness-based approaches, and bridges traditional psychotherapy with somatic approaches within a context of relational practice.  

NARM is positioned to become an invaluable treatment option for C-PTSD (Complex PTSD), and a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care movement as we gain greater understanding of the long-term effects on the body and mind of adverse childhood experience (ACEs).
