Transforming Trauma Episode 067: Trauma and Beyond with Drs. Joanne Barron and Lynne Friedman-Gell
A podcast brought to you by the NARM® Training Institute
On this episode of Transforming Trauma, our host Emily is joined by Drs. Joanne Barron and Lynne Friedman-Gell. Drs. Joanne and Lynne have been studying and integrating NARM into their work since 2012. Together they have developed an integrative approach for trauma treatment incorporating mind, body and emotion in which NARM plays a big role. They are also Co-Founders of the Trauma and Beyond Psychological Center, an intensive specialized treatment program which provides day-treatment and intensive outpatient for client’s with trauma and related disorders.
Through their conversation, Drs. Joanne and Lynne describe how pervasive and toxic trauma can be, and some of the challenges that clients face in grappling with the impact of complex trauma. Yet, they also share that from their experience, healing from trauma is possible. They both credit NARM, as well as other somatic-oriented trauma treatment approaches like EMDR and Somatic Experiencing, as being a big part of their work with clients. In fact, Lynne shares a story from when she and Joanne were first training in NARM together and that this experience inspired them to create their treatment program. She recalls saying to Joanne: “This is such amazing, rich work, and you and I can only do so much… there are so many clients who need this work, we need to open a treatment program.”
