Transforming Trauma

A podcast brought to you by the NARM® Training Institute

In a modern world beset by complex trauma and a legacy of suffering, conflict and disconnection, healing trauma can serve as a vehicle for personal and social transformation. Transforming Trauma is a podcast about thriving after trauma. Throughout our episodes, we will explore the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), a revolutionary healing approach for healing Complex Trauma (C-PTSD) and restoring connection to self and others. Whether you are a healthcare professional, an educator, a public policy maker, a trauma survivor, or someone interested in personal healing and social justice, Transforming Trauma will provide you with a map for increased resiliency, greater health outcomes, healthier relationships, personal growth and social change. We invite you to listen along as we explore how freedom from complex trauma is possible.

Healing Complex Trauma

Complex Trauma is a worldwide health concern.  C-PTSD has been linked to chronic health problems, including a number of medical and mental health disorders.  Additionally, C-PTSD has been linked to pervasive social problems, such as child abuse and neglect, teen pregnancy, substance abuse and addiction, domestic and community violence, and systemic oppression.

Our understanding of the far-reaching effects of unresolved Complex Trauma is supported by the ACEs Study (Adverse Childhood Experiences), giving us a deeper appreciation for the long-term impact of attachment, relational and developmental trauma on both health and social well-being.

At the NARM Training Institute, we are at the forefront of the Trauma-Informed Care movement, providing an effective approach for addressing the impact of unresolved Complex Trauma on individuals, couples, families and communities.

Transforming Trauma provides interviews with NARM Therapists on how NARM addresses the legacy of childhood, cultural and intergenerational trauma.  These leaders in the Trauma-Informed Care movement will guide listeners through the diverse ways NARM is applied in actualizing Post-Traumatic Growth. Their shared message is clear: Freedom from Complex Trauma is possible.

Thank you for joining us on this journey to heal complex trauma.
