Admission Requirements

The Level 2 NARM Therapist Training is designed for licensed psychotherapists, social workers, counselors, and other licensed mental health professionals who work with trauma.  Graduate trainees and interns working toward licensure are welcome to apply.  Applications are approved on a case-by-case basis and may include a personal interview with the NARM coordinator and/or faculty member.

NARM Training Certificate

A certificate of completion is issued to all participants upon completion of the requirements for the NARM Therapist Training.


The NARM Training Institute is neither a regulatory nor licensing organization and therefore not sanctioned to certify, license, or otherwise bestow the legal authorization to practice as a mental health professional.  While the theoretical approach taught in NARM offers a useful framework which can support professionals from various clinical disciplines, all participants in the NARM Practitioner Training should clarify to what extent using the NARM approach in their practices is condoned by their licensing body Acceptance into the NARM Practitioner Training does not ensure that all NARM methods will be appropriate for inclusion in your professional practice.  Training participants are responsible for operating within their professional scope of practice and for abiding by state and federal laws.
