NARM PODCASTS

This podcast was difficult to title, because it covers so much ground. Brad Kammer talks to us about connection, community, shame, fear, love, sexuality…he basically covers the range of human experience from both a clinical and personal perspective. His extensive work in the field of trauma, and the depth of understanding he possess around the healing process, make this episode feel especially important. Brad is my teacher in the certification program for the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), and from day one I knew I wanted to have him on the podcast. He is insightful and heartfelt, and I believe this podcast will leave you with a sense of hope for our collective healing.

Brad’s interest in the fields of Somatic Psychology and Interpersonal Neurobiology emerged from his belief that healing must be integrated with both mind and body, as well as in connection with our relationships. His passion lies in supporting individuals, couples and families in shifting old patterns and experiencing greater pleasure and fulfillment in their lives.

brad podcast #5

Brad and Sarah are both therapists focused on addressing Complex Trauma and are passionate about brining somatic-oriented approaches to addressing ACEs, Complex Trauma and supporting personal and social healing.
In this episode, they have an engaging discussion on the importance of body-mind modalities that go beneath people’s symptoms in order to address the disrupted psychobiological patterns impacted by unresolved trauma. They also share their own experiences as therapists, teachers, students and clients and how this has shaped their perspective on the necessity of continuing to learn, do their own healing work, and provide mindful service to the individuals and communities they work with.
