Healing Developmental Trauma: How Early Trauma Affects Self-Regulation


Product Description

Published USA, 2012
Although it may seem that people suffer from an endless number of emotional problems and challenges, the authors of this book maintain that most of these can be traced to five biologically-based organizing principles: the need for connection, attunement, trust, autonomy and love-sexuality. They describe how early trauma impairs the capacity for connection to self and others and how the ensuing diminished aliveness is the hidden dimension that underlies most psychological and many physiological problems. This book introduces the Neuro-Affective Relational Model (NARM), a method that integrates bottom-up and top-down approaches to regulate the nervous system and resolve distortions of identity such as low self-esteem, shame and chronic self-judgement that are the outcome of developmental and relational trauma.

Laurence Heller is the originator of the Neuro-Affective Relational Model.
