The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM®) is an effective developmentally oriented psychotherapeutic approach for addressing adverse and stressful childhood experiences (developmental trauma, K-PTBS) and their long-term effects.

This workshop provides an overview 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 disconnection that deeply influence our identity, emotions, physiology, relationships, and behavior.


The approach is resource-oriented, non-regressive, non-cathartic and non-pathologizing. Therapeutic support focuses on the interplay of various aspects of identity and the capacity for connection and regulation.


This introductory workshop is not a pre-requisite for attending the full NARM training and it does not allow you to use NARM professionally.


• Overview of the theoretical and clinical approach to the treatment of developmental trauma,
• The reciprocal relationship of nervous system dysregulation and identity distortions.
• The five organizing themes in NARM and their significance from a developmental psychological point of view.
• The emergence and function of the five basic adaptive strategies, the resulting identity distortions, and its implications in adult life.
• Working in present time, the importance of dual awareness and somatic mindfulness.
• The four pillars of process work.
• The NARM healing cycle and top-down and bottom-up integration.
• Demonstration of the approach.
• Orientation: the NARM training
