A practical step-by-step guide and follow-up companion
to Healing Developmental Trauma–presenting one of the first comprehensive models for addressing complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD)

The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) is an integrated mind-body framework that focuses on relational, attachment, developmental, cultural, and intergenerational trauma. NARM helps clients resolve C-PTSD, recover from adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), and facilitate post-traumatic growth.

Inspired by cutting-edge trauma-informed research on attachment, developmental psychology, and interpersonal neurobiology, The Practical Guide for Healing Developmental Trauma provides counselors, psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, and trauma-sensitive helping professionals with the theoretical background and practical skills they need to help clients transform complex trauma. It explains:

  • The four pillars of the NARM therapeutic model
  • Cultural and transgenerational trauma
  • Shock vs. developmental trauma
  • How to effectively address ACEs and support relational health
  • How to differentiate NARM from other approaches to trauma treatment
  • NARM’s organizing principles and how to integrate the program into your clinical practice
