Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week, host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C again dives into the topic of developmental trauma. Today’s guest is Brad Kammer, LMFT, LPCC, a California Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Professional Clinical Counselor. Brad trained as a Somatic Psychotherapist and has worked in the field of trauma for over 20 years, specializing in working with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). Brad shared his thoughts on developmental trauma and Borderline Personality Disorder, and described NARM and its training process.
Brad began his career as a Humanitarian Aid Worker in Asia which introduced him to personal and collective trauma. He became passionate about supporting individuals and communities in the transformation of trauma. Brad has since focused his work on the integration of Somatic Psychology, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Relational Therapies and wisdom from Spiritual Traditions and Traditional Cultures. He has a special interest in the fields of developmental, cultural and intergenerational trauma.
Brad is the Training Director and Senior Trainer of the NARM Training Institute. He teaches the NeuroAffective Relational Model® (NARM®) internationally and has provided consultation to thousands of therapists and other helping professionals around the world. He is the co-author of a new book: “The Practical Guide for Healing Developmental Trauma: Using the NeuroAffective Relational Model to Address Adverse Childhood Experiences and Resolve Complex Trauma”. Brad has also been a trainer for Somatic Experiencing® (SE®). And more recently, he began producing a podcast entitled: Transforming Trauma.
Brad lives in a small town in Northern California with his family where he enjoys anything involving nature, travel, music, food, and learning about and connecting with new people.
