Dr. Laurence Heller developed the NeuroAffective Relational Model® known as NARM®. He is also the co-founder of the NARM Training Institute. He has 40 years of clinical experience and has been leading trainings for psychotherapists for much of that time throughout Europe and the United States.
He has developed an innovative psychotherapy which integrates elements from Attachment Theory, somatic psychotherapies, Object Relations Theory and non-western traditions, creating a unique psychotherapy model that is non-regressive, non-interpretive, present moment oriented and works in a unique way with a client’s personal history: The NARM model is based on the premise that it is the persistence of once life-saving adaptive survival style mechanisms not the trauma itself that creates symptoms.
Dr. Heller is the co-author of Healing Developmental Trauma, published in English and 15 other languages as well as the co-author of the bestselling Practical Guide to Healing Developmental Trauma published in July 2022 as well as two other books on psychotherapy. He and NARM teachers that he trained run trainings online, throughout the USA and in ten European countries.
