Transforming Trauma Episode 060: Supporting Connection, Capacity and Growth in the NARM Community with Marcia Black, Stefanie Klein, and Brad Kammer
A podcast brought to you by the NARM® Training Institute
In this first episode of 2022, NARM Faculty Marcia Black, Stefanie Klein and Brad Kammer welcome our new Transforming Trauma host Emily Ruth, and together explore the challenges, learning and growth over this past year. They reflect on how NARM has supported them in their teaching and work with clients. They also reflect on the power of coming together in community with NARM Therapists and Helping Professionals around the world, and how this has sustained them through this time of COVID.
When the Transforming Trauma podcast was just beginning, and at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Marcia, Stefanie and Brad had a conversation about “Connection, Community and Transformation During Crisis”. Throughout this new conversation, they follow up on themes from their initial conversation and talk about vulnerability, curiosity, not knowing, and the different ways NARM supports them as they are supporting healing and growth in their students and clients.
All three reflected on the significance of them continuing to “do their own work”, meaning, continuing to focus on their own inner healing and growth for themselves. They agreed that this helps them both personally and professionally. As Brad says, “It doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 80, there’s always going to be more work…We can learn, as our strategies start to quiet down, how to be more expansive and have greater capacity.” This reflects a central theme in NARM about how we support increasing psychobiological capacity through self-inquiry and commitment to our own work.
They also reflect on all the various trauma-informed projects they are involved in. Brad talks about the larger mission of the NARM Training Institute in making NARM more accessible, and the ways they are continuing to get creative in offering new trainings, programs and outreach.
We invite you to tune in and hear how the NARM Training Institute and the global NARM Community has adapted, grown, and been impacted by the important learning that happens in the NARM Trainings, and all of the healing that’s supported by NARM Therapists and NARM-Informed Professionals all over the world.
