The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) offers one of the first comprehensive therapeutic models for addressing complex post-traumatic stress disorder.
This model for post-traumatic growth will introduce the 4 Pillars that supports change in one's self, relationships, and capacity for feeling more deeply human.
Complex trauma is an epidemic that impacts individuals, couples, families and communities around the world. Thanks to new research on adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and complex trauma (C-PTSD), we can develop a framework and skills that can lead to personal and collective change. The NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) for healing complex trauma supports a post-traumatic growth process of deepening connection to Self and others.
Inspired by cutting-edge research on trauma, attachment, and interpersonal neurobiology, this course helps professionals (including therapists) — or anyone interested in healing trauma — with the theoretical background and practical skills they need to transform complex trauma.

Overview of Developmental Trauma, Character Structures and the NeuroAffective Relational Model
Module 1 will introduce the NeuroAffective Relational Model and how this framework will be used to present a less pathologizing and more humane understanding of personality, complex trauma and human suffering. An overview of the trauma-informed movement will be presented, including a differentiation between complex trauma (C-PTSD) and shock trauma (PTSD). Using research on adverse childhood experiences and developmental trauma, participants will be introduced to the NARM Adaptive Survival Styles model, which are five trauma-based, developmental adaptations that children carry forward into adulthood.
Adaptive Survival Styles
Module 2 will explore the NARM framework of the Adaptive Survival Styles, specifically focusing on the earliest developmental stages of the Connection and Attunement Survival Styles, their corresponding shame and pride-based identifications and adaptive survival strategies. Participants will also be introduced to the historical understanding of “Character Structures” and how the NARM framework has evolved our understanding of personality and personality disorders.
Adaptive Survival Styles Continued
Module 3 will continue exploring the NARM framework of the Adaptive Survival Styles, specifically focusing on the developmental stages of the Trust, Autonomy and Love-Sexuality Survival Styles, their corresponding shame and pride-based identifications and adaptive survival strategies. Participants will also be introduced to the historical understanding of “Character Structures” and how the NARM framework has evolved our understanding of personality and personality disorders.
Healing Developmental Trauma and the Adaptive Survival Styles
Module 4 will present an introduction to the NARM therapeutic approach. An overview of the NARM 4 Pillars will be introduced, which are relational skills designed for resolving developmental trauma and supporting post-traumatic growth. The NARM understanding of heartfulness as a vehicle for healing developmental trauma will also be covered. Participants will be introduced to research-informed theory and skills that can be applied for supporting personal and collective change.
