The ability to get in contact
No matter how much we have withdrawn and isolated ourselves, or how difficult our trauma may be, in each of us at the bottom of the deepest layer we find the impulse towards contact, which makes us grow towards the light like a plant. – The concern of NARM® (Neuroaffective Relational Model) is the connection with ourselves, with feelings, with the body, with our own vitality and with other people. – This contact is our deepest need and at the same time our greatest challenge.
NARM is a body-oriented and psychodynamic approach for the treatment of developmental and bonding traumas. We work here with the dysregulation of the nervous system, and also with the identity distortions that we acquired in early years. Like a carpet, our identity is woven from many different threads. In our work we look at small sections of the large carpet. This makes it easier for us to understand and integrate the reciprocal interweaving and distortions.
Symptoms Of Complex Trauma
The symptoms of complex trauma occur in addition to the classic symptoms of shock trauma. The loss of trust in people – and in the world in general – is central element to complex traumas.
