The NARM training is 2 Year clinical training with Dr. Laurence Heller, Ph.D., co-author of “Healing Developmental Trauma. How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation, Self-Image, and the Capacity for Relationship” . Laurence Heller  is the originator of the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), a unified system to work with developmental, attachment, and shock trauma. His work integrates psychodynamic approaches, Somatic Experiencing, and a non-traditional orientation to working with identity. He was the co-founder of the Gestalt Institute of Denver, has been on the faculty of several large universities, and is a senior faculty member for the nonprofit Somatic Experiencing Training Institute (SETI). Dr. Heller is the co-author of “Healing Developmental Trauma”, a highly successful book (also available on Kindle), as well as Crash Course, a book about auto accident trauma published in four languages. He is fluent in several languages and currently teaches NARM and Somatic Experiencing regularly throughout Europe and the United States.

The spontaneous movement in all of us is toward connection, health, and aliveness. No matter how withdrawn and isolating we have become, or how serious the trauma we have experienced, on the deepest level, just as a plant spontaneously moves towards sunlight, there is in each of us an impulse moving toward connection and healing. This impulse is the fuel of the NARM. NARM emphasizes working clinically with the functional unity between biological and psychological development integrating a relational, psychodynamic approach with a nervous system based orientation.
