This webinar explores components of trauma-informed supervision and mentorship using the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM). We will learn how supervisors and mentors can integrate a NARM-Informed perspective into their work with supervisees. We will review how to effectively use ourselves as a tool, and the supervisory relationship as a practice, for supporting the skills of self-reflective inquiry, presence, and curiosity. We will also review how to support ourselves and our supervisees when working with challenging supervisory and clinical dynamics, including countertransference and relational enactments that may emerge.
This webinar offers an overview of the use of psychedelic and plant medicines and their utilization in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. We will examine how to apply NARM principles to the process of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. We will discuss exploration of survival styles in order to assess readiness for our clients. We will also explore the themes of consent and agency in altered states and the idea of inner healing intelligence as it maps on to the NARM concepts of adult consciousness and agency.
This webinar explores how the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) offers a framework and key insights for a bodywork practice. We’ll examine how each of the NARM pillars represent good practices in all bodywork settings, not just trauma-informed ones, and we’ll also unravel subtle and pervasive misconceptions in culture about what trauma, healing, and trauma-informed bodywork are. Lastly, we’ll explore specific insights from NARM that are applicable in a trauma-informed bodywork practice, including how bodywork can push clients into their core dilemmas and how NARM’s insights into primary and default emotions are essential contributions to a more sophisticated neuro-centric understanding of posture.
In this webinar, we will explore how the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) can strengthen intersystem communication in the treatment of dissociative identity disorder (DID) as well as encouraging healthy agency from an adult consciousness (present day) lens. Furthermore, this webinar discusses using NARM with clients who have DID, common difficulties NARM therapists face when treating DID, and solutions and suggestions for these issues that may arise.
In this webinar, we will further explore how the NeuroAffective Relational Model or (NARM) can support the exploration of unresolved trauma patterns for therapists and helping professionals when addressing cultural trauma. Cultural trauma, a significant yet under-recognized aspect of Complex Trauma, can contribute to misattunement in therapeutic relationships due to lack of diversity in the mental health field, the legacy of systemic oppression in many societal institutions, implicit bias, and specific culturally-based countertransference reactions within clinicians.
Recovery from substance/process addiction is not a destination or event, but instead a journey that occurs one state shift at a time. In this webinar, we review what the addiction recovery process looks like within the context of NARM’s five survival styles. These survival adaptations provide key organizing principles that guide addiction treatment versus viewing substance abuse disorder as merely a phenomenology. We will examine how Inviting Agency and Self-Activation support sustained sobriety/abstinence. Lastly, using pre and post measures (such as continuous performance testing and brain mapping), several case studies will be presented that delve into NARM’s effectiveness with treating addictive and compulsive tendencies.
In this webinar, we will further explore how the NeuroAffective Relational Model or (NARM) can provide appropriate language and clinical skills for working with clients who are directly impacted by historic and systemic oppression in American culture. Specifically, this webinar focuses on minority groups, for example, people of color and the LGBTQ community.This webinar will define the corrective action of cultural attunement and provide specific examples, through the therapeutic relationship, of how authentic attunement can begin to heal cultural wounds.
This webinar uses NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) to present an introduction into a clinical orientation for addressing the historic and systemic oppression in American culture of minority groups, specifically focused on people of color and the LGBTQ community. Cultural trauma, a significant yet under-recognized aspect of Complex Trauma, can contribute to misattunement in therapeutic relationships due to lack of diversity in the mental health field, the legacy of systemic oppression in American institutions, implicit bias and other countertransference reactions within clinicians.
“In this online workshop we highlight the use of Agency in the NARM™ approach for resolving attachment and developmental trauma. While generally viewed as a synonym for responsibility or empowerment, we introduce a different perspective on agency and how we use it clinically in the NARM™ approach.
Includes workshop video, audio file, transcript, and slides.
